Corporate publications

Our corporate publications give you a more in depth understanding of who we are, what we do and what our focus will be over the coming months and years.

New business plan for 2019-2020

We have published our new business plan for the current financial year. This sets out how we will deliver our strategic vision of high quality care for everyone affected by fertility treatment.

This business plan represents the third and final year of our 2017 - 2020 strategy. The activities listed in the plan represent the work needed to complete our strategy and deliver our strategic objectives.

Our focus will be to embed changes and build on the work done in previous years, encouraging clinics to strive for excellence in leadership and patient support and provide the best possible outcomes for patients.

During the year we will be composing our next strategy and will aim to publish this in the first few months of 2020.

Business impact target (BIT)

The business impact target (BIT) is a cross-government target for the reduction of regulation on business.

Under the BIT, the Environment Agency assesses the financial impacts on business of qualifying regulatory provisions (QRPs). QRPs are changes to regulatory practices that are described in a written ministerial statement. We assess the impacts of these changes through BIT assessments.

We submit BIT assessments for QRPs to the Regulatory Policy Committee (RPC) for validation.


Our vision is high quality care for everyone affected by fertility treatment. Our strategy, developed in partnership with our stakeholders, sets out how we're going to achieve that vision in three key areas:

  • safe, ethical, effective treatment
  • consistent outcomes and support
  • improving standards through intelligence

Innovation plan

Our innovation plan sets out the actions that we are taking to ensure that:

  • the UK remains a jurisdiction where innovation can continue to flourish
  • clinical practice and ethical research can continue to develop
  • the public continue to be reassured that nothing is done without expert oversight.
