- 2nd Annual Cambridge Conference on Regulation, Inspection & Improvement
- Peterhouse College, University of Cambridge , United Kingdom
- The objective of this conference is to explore the implications for regulators, inspectors and other regulatory actors of changes to the way that risk is considered within regulatory regimes. Recent reviews of regulation have concluded that the aspiration of zero risk - risk elimination - is undesirable as well as unattainable. Over-burdensome regulations and regulatory creep not only stifle innovation but also undermine our sense of community and responsibility, so encouraging the blame culture. Government agencies, whilst maintaining essential protections, are urged to make clear to the public the limits of regulation beyond which the individual has to accept responsibility.
