Regulatory services

The Regulatory Services Comparative Profiles use financial data to provide simple and easy to read charts that collectively build up a detailed view of how your service costs compare to others.

The CIPFA regulatory services and trading standards comparative profiles have been developed in response to requests from local authorities from across England and Wales.

The comparative profiles enable you to examine how your service costs and income compare to your peers. The profiles provide decision-makers with a quick, inexpensive way to engage with comparative and benchmarking data, to support evidence based decision-making for your transformation projects.

What is included?

The profiles look at the following key areas:

  • objective and subjective financial analysis overviews 
  • animal health and animal welfare licensing
  • public health
  • infectious diseases
  • environmental protection
  • food safety
  • health, safety and welfare
  • port health
  • water safety
  • licensing
  • other regulatory services
  • trading standards.

In addition, you will receive an interactive Excel tool to enable you to analyse the data further and export charts for your own reports. You will also be able to request an additional profile compared with any selection of authorities at no additional charge.
