Co-operation between APEC and OECD began in 1999. APEC and OECD economies have acknowledged the role of implementing good regulatory practices as key to achieving open and competitive markets, and a key driver of economic efficiency and consumer welfare. In the fall of 2000, an APEC-OECD Agreement on joint work on regulatory reform was developed and then endorsed at the APEC Ministerial Meeting on 12-13 November 2000 in Brunei Darussalam. Subsequently, a series of workshops took place in three phases:
(2000-02) focused on the first results of regulatory reform and implementing regulatory reform in APEC and OECD economies.
(2005-10) focused on how the Checklist on Regulatory Reform can be used by economies as a self-assessment policy tool, and more generally, how domestic and international co-operation on regulatory matters can be strengthened.
The APEC Economic Committee is currently responsible for good regulatory practices within APEC member countries and invited the OECD to participate in the 14-15 February 2012 meeting in Moscow, Russia and the 19-20 September 2011 meeting meeting in San Francisco to provide an update on OECD’s latest tools for regulatory policy and discuss potential future cooperation.
