The APEC-OECD Integrated Checklist was developed in 2003-05 as part of the APEC-OECD Co-operative Initiative on Regulatory Reform, and was approved by the respective executive bodies of APEC and the OECD in 2005.
The Checklist highlights key issues that should be considered during the process of development and implementation of regulatory policy, based on the accumulated knowledge of APEC and the OECD.
