Improving access to Welsh public data
The Food Standards Agency in Wales has welcomed the Welsh Regulators’ Forum’s report on how to make better use of information each regulator collects.
The aims of the report are to make the collection and use of information more efficient and effective, and provide greater transparency for consumers and businesses in Wales. The project examines ways to reduce the administrative burden of data reporting on local authorities; foster effective data sharing across the regulatory system and increase the transparency of how data is used.
Steve Wearne, Head of the Food Standards Agency in Wales, said: 'As a national regulator accountable for the safety of food consumed by citizens in Wales, information about regulatory performance is crucial and we welcome this report and the impetus it gives to ensuring national and local regulators work effectively together.'
The Food Standards Agency is a member of the Welsh Regulators’ Forum, which is an initiative created jointly by the Local Better Regulation Office and the Welsh Government, members also include other local and national regulators.
