Government Consultation

 

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy is currently undertaking the second statutory review of the Groceries Code Adjudicator (GCA).  This review seeks views and evidence which will allow the Government to make an assessment of the performance of the GCA against the measures set out in the Act.

 

The GCA has asked for feedback from designated retailers and suppliers on how effective the GCA has been in enforcing the Code and how it has performed its statutory obligations.  If you have time, can you please respond to the consultation via the link below:

Stakeholders have until 12 September 2019 to respond.  A report on the findings will then be published and laid before Parliament.

 

Regards

Tim Belser

Code Compliance Officer
