Annual Reviews and Reports
The HTA publishes an Annual Review and Report every year as a record of what has been achieved during the course of the year. Since 2007 this has been separated into two publications.
Annual Review 2011/12: Ensuring public confidence
This report provides highlights of what we have been doing during 2011/12, but it also provides a small insight into what we have found and, importantly, what we have learned during that period. It looks at how we and the sectors we regulate have adapted to the changing regulatory and political landscape, the needs of the public and new science innovations. We hope you find it interesting.
The Annual Review covers the HTA's work from 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2012.

Annual Review 2009/10: Making a Difference
Our Annual Review 2009/10 was published in June.
Since we began regulating in 2006, we have been well on the way to achieving our aim of becoming a high performing and forward-looking regulator. We have faced new challenges over the last year. These include the impact of the economic downturn, increased awareness of patient safety issues and rapidly advancing medicine and science. We have continued to put emphasis on securing compliance through the provision of advice and guidance rather than enforcement. This Annual Review paints a picture of our efficiency and effectiveness, and how we make a difference as a regulator.
The Annual Review covers the HTA's work from 1 April 2009 to 31 March 2010.

Annual Review 2008/09: Demonstrating Value
Our Annual Review 2008/09 was published in July.
This was a challenging year for us, particularly because of the substantial growth in our remit under the European Union Tissue and Cells Directives. Our resources were stretched to their limits, but we continued to streamline our systems and processes so that we could operate as efficiently, effectively and economically as possible.
The Annual Review covers the HTA's work from 1 April 2008 to 31 March 2009.

Annual Report and Accounts 2008/09
The HTA published its third Annual Report and Accounts on 23 June 2009. During 2008/09, the HTA was reviewed by the strategic support team of the Better Regulation Executive from the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform. The review team found that stakeholders valued the HTA's openness and desire to engage them to develop the regulatory framework; and they found that the HTA's risk-based approach had minimised the regulatory burden.
This Annual Report covers the HTA's work from 1 April 2008 to 31 March 2009.
Annual Review 2007/08: Building confidence
The HTA published its Annual Review 2007/08 on 30 July 2008. This was a busy year for the HTA in which we approved almost 1,000 living-donor transplants and licensed nearly 750 establishments.
In the Review, professionals and members of the public share their experiences of working with the HTA. This demonstrates not only the diverse range of work that we are responsible for, but also the positive effect of our regulatory activity.
The Annual Review covers the HTA's work from 1 April 2007 to 31 March 2008.
Annual Report and Accounts 2006/07: Delivering better regulation
The HTA published its second Annual Report and Accounts, 'Delivering better regulation', on 19 July 2007. In this year, the HTA created an entirely new regulatory system for licensing more than 500 establishments across five diverse sectors, and for approving donations of organs and bone marrow from living people.
In the Annual Report, stakeholders from each regulated sector describe their experiences of working with the HTA. These interviews demonstrate how the five key principles of better regulation have shaped our approach.
This Annual Report covers the HTA's work from 1 April 2006 to 31 March 2007.
