Strategy and policies for Better Regulation
Abstract:Regulatory policy may be defined broadly as an explicit, dynamic, and consistent "whole‐of‐government" policy to pursue high quality regulation. A key part of the OECD's 2005 Guiding Principles for Regulatory Quality and Performance is that countries adopt broad programmes of regulatory reform that establish principles of "good regulation", as well as a framework for implementation. Experience across the OECD suggests that an effective regulatory policy should be adopted at the highest political levels, contain explicit and measurable regulatory quality standards, and provide for continued regulatory management capacity.
