The current version of the REC is in a transitional form of the REC, providing a foundation for the establishment of RECCo and REC institutions, as well as support for the Switching Programme. Although REC drafting has to date been published in a traditional manner, we anticipate that version 2.0 will be given effect in a fully digital format. Further details are available in our Draft Strategy and Headline Budget document and in due course through the publication of our detailed Digitalisation Strategy.
