Each regulator is accountable to parliament as an agency or public body and we aim not to duplicate those mechanisms.

DECC has the policy lead. It works closely with regulators and industry to ensure that regulation is as efficient as possible whilst remaining robust to safeguard public safety and protect the environment.
