On 27 November 2015, the Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency – ANEEL held a regulatory oversight Seminar to promote discussions about regulatory enforcement. The OECD was represented by Daniel Trnka, Senior Policy Analyst on Regulatory Reform. Over 150 public servants attended the event, mostly regulatory specialists from ANEEL and other regulatory institutions in Brazil.
Session I focussed on agents’ Perception and Compared Benchmarks. The intention was to understand the market perception about ANEEL, specifically in terms of what the agency can do to improve regulatory compliance. The panel included Joísa Dutra Campanher, coordinator of the Masters Programme in Finance and Business Economy at Fundação Getúlio Vargas, Miguel Calleja Mediano, head of the Coordination of Regulatory Positioning at Iberdrola SA, and Ken Zagzebski, president of AES United States.
Session II focussed on some innovations in enforcement initiatives in Brazil. Experience from the Brazilian Revenue Services (Receita Federal) and Brazilian Central Bank (Banco Central) were presented by Iágaro Jung Martins (Receita Federal), and Harold Paquete Espínola Filho (Banco Central).
In the afternoon, Professor Martin Lodge, from the Political Science and Public Policy at the Department of Government and Director of the Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation (CARR) at the London School of Economics and Political Science gave a lecture about The State of The Art in Regulatory Oversight. Mr. Daniel Trnka, Senior Regulatory Policy Analyst, OECD, gave a presentation on the OECD´s Best Practice Principles on Regulatory Enforcement and Inspections.
In 2016, the electricity agency intends to enhance oversight techniques based on the OECD Regulatory Enforcement and Inspection Principles.
