Participants shared approaches and techniques for measuring compliance costs and identifying strategies for cutting regulatory costs that contribute to re-boosting growth and to delivering improved welfare outcomes. The workshop took place in Berlin and was hosted by the German Federal Chancellery and the National Regulatory Control Council. Delegates and experts from 25 countries exchanged experience and good practices and focused both on the technical challenges in measuring compliance costs and benefits of regulations, and on the political challenges in reducing costs to stimulate growth and maximise welfare outcomes.
This meeting was part of an annual series of expert meetings on . Other meetings have focussed on the implementation of the 2012 Recommendation (Stockholm 2013), on developing a framework for measuring regulatory performance (Madrid 2011), on the use of perception surveys (Istanbul 2010), and on indicators of regulatory management systems (London 2009).
