Regulatory policy

The Regulatory Policy Committee Bureau

 

What are the responsibilities of the Regulatory Policy Committee Bureau? A number of delegates are designated to serve as officers to represent a Committee. They provide more detailed direction to the OECD Secretariat on issues of management and the planning of the Programme of Work. These representatives are known as "the Bureau", and generally serve two to three years.

Bureau members participate in planning meetings with the Secretariat prior to each Committee meeting and provide ongoing consultation by telephone and through email and written exchanges.

The members of the Regulatory Policy Committee Bureau for 2013 are:
