On 20 September 2013, the Executive Committee formally approved the creation of the Network of Economic Regulators (NER) as a subsidiary body of the Regulatory Policy Committee (RPC) [GOV/RPC/NER(2013)4]. The NER is a platform composed of economic regulators from various sectors from OECD and non-OECD countries to provide an expert forum that can support the RPC in respect to issues material to the successful delivery of economic regulation by OECD and non Member countries. The fundamental role of regulators as actors of regulatory policy is recognised in the 2012 OECD Recommendation of the Council on Regulatory Policy and Governance [C(2012)37].
The Regulatory Policy Committee (RPC) was created in 2009, as a result of the In-depth Evaluation of the Group on Regulatory Policy [C(2009)36/REV1]. Its revised mandate, requires the RPC to promote an integrated, horizontal and multidisciplinary approach to regulatory quality and seek to ensure that the Organisation as a whole promotes sound regulatory policy and practices.Chair and Bureau of the NER
