    Driving Performance at Ireland's Commission for Regulation of Utilities

    As 'market referees', regulators contribute to the delivery of essential public utilities.

The report uses PAFER to assess elements linked to both the internal and external governance of Ireland's Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU). The review acknowledges the achievements and good practices put in place by the regulator since its creation. It also analyses the key drivers of CRU’s performance and proposes an integrated reform package to help the regulator prepare for the future.
