BRDO in partnership with the World Bank Group has been working with the Department for Food Technology and Quality Control in Nepal to support the roll out of innovative approaches to food safety enforcement. The latest BRDO mission to Nepal by Sarah Smith, Deputy Chief Executive and Adrian Hall, Senior Policy Analyst in June 2014 included working closely with the DFTQC inspectors to pilot a new inspection checklist and exploring ways for inspectors to support businesses to raise food hygiene standards.
In May 2014 BRDO hosted China Britain Council delegation for one day whilst they were in the UK.
Sarah Smith, Deputy Chief Executive at BRDO, presented on the UK Regulatory Framework including an introduction to the Better Regulation Delivery Office and an overview of UK reform agenda and strategy.
BRDO worked with representatives from China to discuss China’s reform agenda and economic programme.
Discussions were based on the topic of building confidence to invest and grow in the economy. The focus was on the UK current approach to regulatory delivery, working with other agencies, the Primary Authority Scheme and working with business.
The Better Regulation Executive also presented on regulatory reform and the Regulatory Policy Committee explained their role in the process.
