3rd expert workshop, Developing a Framework for Measuring Regulatory Performance in OECD Countries

 

Madrid, 26-27 September 2011

 

This OECD expert meeting, hosted by the Government of Spain, addressed two key policy issues: How can countries demonstrate that investing in their systems for regulatory policy and management delivers improvements to their economies and societies? How can they identify further investments in better regulatory policy to yield the highest dividends?

 

Experts from over 24 countries explored the development of a framework that countries can use to evaluate regulatory policy performance domestically.

 

This meeting was part of an annual series of expert meetings on Measuring Regulatory Performance. Other meetings have focussed on assessing the implementation of the 2012 Recommendation (Stockholm 2013), on overcoming challenges to measuring and reducing compliance costs (Berlin 2012), on the use of perception surveys in OECD Countries (Istanbul 2010), and on Indicators of Regulatory Management Systems (London 2009).
