Regulatory Enforcement Fairness 

The Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) was passed by Congress in 1996 in response to concerns expressed by the small business community that Federal regulations were too numerous, too complex, and too expensive to implement. The act was designed to give small business assistance in understanding and complying with regulations and more of a voice in development of new regulations.
