BBfA is a programme that brings together businesses and regulators - often for the first time - to consider and change how local regulation is delivered and received. It involves the creation of groups in specific areas that then shape the way support is provided to businesses by local regulators.
There are a number of organisations that help businesses with regulation.
This link shows, at the bottom of the page the organisations and schemes that provide support with regulation.Subscribe
