It was originally expected that the final regulations would be published this summer and come into force on 1 October 2016. However, the GEO now envisages that the regulations will be laid before Parliament in the autumn, and will commence in April 2017. If this is the case, it is likely that the first "relevant date" under the regulations would remain at 30 April 2017, as previously announced, meaning that the first gender pay gap reports will be due by the end of April 2018.
