ROCKTALK may not be the ideal area for this topic, but I was wondering...

How do folk feel about the proposed replacement of the AALA licensing arrangements with a standardised 'Code of Practice'?

What do people feel will be the likely outcomes of this proposal? Will it free up providers from an expensive and unnecessary burden? Or will it hail the arrival of a whole new breed of bureaucracy, and create further 'risk aversion' as opposed to 'risk awareness'?

I'd just like to hear some opinions.

Only happening in England so far. The jury's out in Scotland and I think Wales are trying to rejig AALA.

I think a revamped AALA is the way to go with more activities being brought into scope.

There will be no 'code of practice' worth the paper it gets printed on. There will be an anodyne statement saying - 'I will conform with current Health and Safety legislation'. Like your supposed to anyway!!

Unless something replaces AALA that is robust and has teeth then we got a cowboys charter. In England. Cos Wales has said the proposal sucks.
