On 13 January 2010, the Department for Business, Innovation and Science (BIS) announced the creation of a body to enforce the new Groceries Supply Code of Practice (GSCP). The decision was made in response to a recommendation by the Competition Commission following its final report on the groceries market which identified concerns over the conduct of certain grocery retailer chains towards suppliers. The new GSCP comes into force on 4 February 2010 and retailers will be required to comply from that date. BIS is expected to consult during February 2010 on who the enforcement body should be and the powers it might have.
