Regulatory agencies are at the forefront of making sure citizens and industry have access to fundamental services that create enjoyable, prosperous and safe places to live, work and do business. At the same time, in a context of increased complexity, disruption and constrained public resources, regulators today and need to provide better regulatory responses to manage uncertainty and guarantee essential services to the public.

 

The OECD Network of Economic Regulators (NER) is an open and unique forum that promotes dialogue across regulators operating in different sectors like communications, energy, transport and water as well as representing countries from across the world. Members  share their experiences, discuss challenges, identify innovative solutions, and balance the competing priorities that frame the features of a “world class regulator” that is equipped to face the future. You can consult the full list of NER participants here. The Secretariat supports the NER via the development of guidance, analytical work and thematic or institutional reviews, under the guidance of the NER Bureau.

 

For further information, to attend a meeting or find out about becoming a member of the NER, please contact Filippo Cavassini.
