How many OECD countries have a requirement to systematically quantify the expected costs and benefits of new regulations? How many countries systematically take social concerns into account when preparing new regulation? What countries have a programme to measure and reduce bureaucracy imposed on businesses and citizens? How many Countries have a Minister in charge of the regulatory reform agenda?
The OECD surveys on countries’ regulatory management systems (RMS) conducted in 1998, 2005 and 2008 answer these, and many other questions. Almost 200 indicators offer comprehensive insights into trends in regulatory reform and identify leading regulatory management practices. They are complementary to the OECD in-depth country reviews (e.g., OECD-EU15 project; Reviews on regulatory reform) and contribute to the flagship publication Government at a Glance.
