The Revitalising Health and Safety Strategy Statement stated at Paragraph 140 that:

"The Government are concerned at the relatively low level of prosecutions and have asked the Health and Safety Commission and Executive to consider how their existing prosecution system can be strengthened, taking into account the approaches of other regulatory bodies such as the Environment Agency."

In June 2000, the HSC published for consultation a proposed revised enforcement policy statement.
