In June 2014 the OECD released the OECD Framework for Regulatory Policy Evaluation. The Framework assists countries in systematically evaluating the design and implementation of regulatory policy, against the achievement of strategic regulatory objectives. It helps countries identify priority areas for improvements in regulatory policy and communicate progress. This publication further provides concrete guidance and examples on the application of the Framework to assess the functioning of ex ante and ex post evaluation systems, administrative burden reduction programmes and public consultation practices.
The publication also presents the results of a 2012-13 survey on regulatory policy evaluation practices in OECD countries.

The publication was officially launched on 18 June at the 6th Expert Meeting on Measuring Regulatory Performance in The Hague (see presentation).
