The January 2012 report the Red Tape Reduction Commission recommended "that the Department of Justice continue to develop tools to foster the intelligibility of legislative texts" to improve the clarity and predictability of regulation for business and improve understanding of regulatory requirements. This document does not intend to repeat the content of related textbooks, manuals, guides and articles. It provides instead a general approach to drafting legislative texts that are accessible to their readers; it is about viewing legislative texts through a particular lens to evaluate their readability. The primary focus of the guide is teaching those who write and develop legislative and regulatory texts to evaluate what can be done to make these texts more accessible, and demonstrate the steps that should be taken.
