From April 2015, subject to parliamentary approval, all health and social care providers will be required to meet fundamental standards of care as a condition of their registration with the Care Quality Commission. There will be criminal penalties for failing to meet some of the standards. The fundamental standards are intended to describe the basic requirements that providers should always meet, and set the standard of care that service users should always expect to receive.

This is the draft of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 which was improved by the responses to the consultation on the requirements for registration with the Care Quality Commission.
