Regulatory policy

Measuring Regulatory Performance


OECD member countries are investing significant resources in the development of regulatory policies and reform programmes to improve the quality of their regulations. Do the reforms succeed in improving the quality of regulations? Do they stimulate investment, foster economic growth, reduce systemic risks, improve the environment, health and overall quality of life?


The programme Measuring Regulatory Performance aims to help OECD countries:


  • Demonstrate how improvements to regulatory governance deliver actual benefits to business and citizens;
  • Measure regulatory performance to diagnose success and failures, improve regulatory policies, programmes and tools, and to communicate progress.
