The Law of Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions: A Practical Guide offers a comprehensive and practical explanation of the powers available to regulators and local authorities in the context of the new regulatory enforcement regime, created by the Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Act 2008 and the Tribunal Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. This new work explains how the Local Better Regulation Office and the establishment of primary authorities will impact on businesses and regulated individuals as well as how the new civil sanctioning powers will affect those accused of regulatory breaches. Setting the law in its political context, The Law of Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions: A Practical Guide provides practical advice on the implementation of the provisions of the Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Act 2008, as well as exploring their ramifications. It also offers detailed treatment of appeals, including judicial review, and appeals to the First-tier Tribunal, as well as coverage of relevant human rights jurisprudence. As the only text dealing with the Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Act 2008 and its implications, this new work provides invaluable guidance to all those affected by the new civil sanctions regime, as well as offering invative suggestions of potential areas and grounds of challenge, and ways to avoid them.
