If you've visited any of our channels in the last few months you may have noticed some changes. Gone is the ship of the Board of Trade and the familiar B.I.S acronym, and in their place is the cross government crest and B.E.I.S (pronounced 'bays' we think).

In July BIS and and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) merged to form the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The new department brings together responsibilities for:

  • business
  • industrial strategy
  • science and innovation
  • energy
  • climate change
