Today, the UK Statistics Authority announces the ‘Office for Statistics Regulation’. This is led by Ed Humpherson, DG for Regulation and his team, and will make a number of important changes to the Authority’s regulatory function.

Statistics are an essential public asset. The Office for Statistics Regulation will enhance the trustworthiness, quality and value of Government statistics by setting standards and upholding them.  We will celebrate when the standards are met and challenge publicly when they are not. We champion relevant statistics in a changing world.
