star this property answer text <p>Protecting consumers from unsafe, faulty and counterfeit goods is a priority. I set up the Working Group on Product Recalls and Safety in October 2016 to bring together product safety experts, the fire service and trading standards professionals to identify necessary improvements to the system of product recalls and safety. The Group published its report in July setting out recommendations and outlining the actions the Working Group has been taking. This includes working with the British Standards Institution (BSI) to develop a code of practice on corrective action and recalls. The Government will respond in the autumn.</p><p>The Department funds National Trading Standards (NTS) who prioritise national and cross-local authority boundary consumer enforcement in England and Wales. A successful programme of operations to tackle the sale of counterfeit and unsafe goods being made available on social media is ongoing. Similarly Trading Standards Scotland coordinates and enforces cross boundary and national casework also undertaking specialist functions which includes tackling e-crime.</p>

The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill will convert directly applicable EU law into UK law and provide a power to correct parts of the law that no longer work.

star this property answer text <p>As stated in the Government’s Transformation Strategy and the Conservative Manifesto, this government is committed to providing services that are digital by default - reducing paper and manual processing, reducing cost and improving user satisfaction.</p><p>BEIS is actively working with all its Arm’s Length Bodies, internal teams and contracted service providers to reduce the amount of paper processing by delivering services digitally wherever possible. There will always be some exceptions where, for legal reasons, paper processing is required but we will continue to explore how new technologies can overcome these barriers and implement them as soon as possible.</p><p>Some examples of what the BEIS Group has already delivered or are in the process of delivering include:</p><p>Land Registry has developed a new Local Land Charge Register Service to digitise existing paper records from 326 Local Authorities and migrate them to a single national Local Land Charge register. This will improve resilience, improve the customer experience of using this service and introduce standardise fees.</p><p>The Innovation Funding Service has developed a new digital service to replace a previously paper based process to submit online applications for research and development funding. Innovate UK run approximately 100 competitions per year and receives in excess of 4,000 applications.</p><p>Finally, the Intellectual Property Office has designed a new digital service that enables customers to apply for a patent design online. This includes the implementation of a new back office system that will deliver a more efficient, cost effective service that will lower operating costs and reduce the fees for customers registering a design.</p>
