Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA)

The Scottish Parliament is currently considering a Scottish Marine Bill which will put in place mechanisms to improve stewardship of the seas around Scotland. In addition to simplifying existing marine legislation, the proposed Marine Bill aims to enhance the long-term viability and growth of the various marine industries with greater stewardship of Scotland's special marine environment.

Regulatory Impact Assessments

A Partial Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) was taken in relation to the proposals within "Sustainable Seas for All - a consultation on Scotland's first marine bill". It provides information on the options discussed and the probable impact and cost of these options.

A Full Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) and a report undertaken by independent consultants are now also available:
