OPSS Announces The Regulatory Excellence Awards 2021 Finalists

United Kingdom – Thirty-five finalists have been chosen from a record number of entries in five categories, including a special one for coronavirus work.

The Awards team received entries from around the country, from a wide variety of organisations striving to make regulation work to protect people and to support business.

As ever, the standard is very high, and on 10 June OPSS will hold an online event to announce the winners to an audience of regulatory professionals from business organisations and the public sector.

The event will celebrate outstanding achievements in supporting businesses and protected consumers, contributing towards fighting coronavirus, rebuilding the economy, and unleashing innovation.

Paul Scully MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State in the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and Minister for London, will provide the opening address before videos are shown highlighting the work of the finalists.

The external judging panel, chosen for their breadth of knowledge and expertise from across the regulatory field, will share how they came to their decision about the winners.
