Can I use the word 'Regulation' in my company name?


Are there any rules about using the word “regulation” in a company name? To be fair, what we have in mind will not regulate anything, but that’s the fun of it! But I’m trying to find out whether that will be allowed. Any idea? Thanks in advance



There are no restrictions on the use of word ‘Regulation’ in a company or business name, so you can include it in the name of your company. This word was removed from the list of ‘sensitive’ words and expressions on 31st January 2015 when the Company, Limited Liability Partnership and Business Names (Sensitive Words and Expressions) Regulations 2014 came into effect.
