    Driving Performance at Ireland's Commission for Regulation of Utilities

    As 'market referees', regulators contribute to the delivery of essential public utilities. Their organisational culture, behaviour and governance are important factors in how regulators, and the sectors they oversee, perform. The OECD Performance Assessment Framework for Economic Regulators (PAFER) looks at the institutions, processes and practices that can create an organisational culture of performance and results. 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.

    The Role of Competition Policy in Regulatory Reform in Ireland

    Competition policy is central to regulatory reform. Its principles and analysis provide a benchmark for assessing the quality of economic and social regulations. It motivates the application of laws that protect competition, which must be applied vigorously as regulatory reform stimulates structural change so that private market abuses do not reverse the benefits of reform.
