Researchers from the CCHPR were commissioned by the UK Government’s Better Regulation Delivery Office to carry out a project examining attitudes to data sharing amongst regulators. The final report, now published, contains a number of organisational, legal and technical recommendations.

 

A team of researchers led by Dr Paul Sanderson from the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research and the Centre for Business Research recently carried out a project for the UK Government’s Better Regulation Delivery Office examining data sharing between regulatory agencies. The project explored attitudes towards data sharing of 63 regulators in 30 organisations. The findings indicate the extent to which regulators share data is influenced by several complex factors including the difficulty of balancing privacy with freedom of information. The final report contains a number of organisational, legal and technical recommendations currently being considered by the government.
