The Government has created a new department for Business, Innovation and Skills whose key role will be to build Britain's capabilities to compete in the global economy. The department has been created by merging the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) and the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS). A new interim BIS website has been launched at The site will keep you up to date with news from the department and provide links to all of its policy information. The former BERR and DIUS websites will continue to run until a permanent BIS site is completed.
