Relevant UK policies on statistical legislation

Non-statistical indicator

Here we outline the relevant UK policies that follow the UN Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics. See 'Other information' section for more detail.

The fulfilment of the ten Fundamental Principles in the UK relates directly to the work of the UK Statistics Authority (UKSA), and its regulatory arm, the Office for Statistics Regulation. All producers of official statistics in the UK must adhere to the UKSA Code of Practice. The framework for the Code of Practice is based on three pillars – Trustworthiness, Quality and Value. Each pillar contains a number of principles and detailed practices that producers should commit to when producing and releasing official statistics. All of this is underpinned by legislation in the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007.
