The OECD Regulatory Policy Committee monitors country practices and conducts in-depth country reviews to shed light on current experience with IRC. This work showcases the country efforts to recognise the international dimension of regulation, and highlights the areas for improvement.
A SNAPSHOT OF OECD IRC PRACTICES
Fostering better rules through international regulatory co-operation (Chapter 5, OECD Regulatory Policy Outlook, 2018)
In 2017, the OECD engaged in a unique data collection exercise on the IRC practices of OECD countries as part of the iREG survey. It resulted in a dedicated Chapter in the OECD 2018 Regulatory Policy Outlook documenting the various jurisdictions’ practices in accounting for the international environment in domestic rulemaking. It reviews how international considerations are reflected in traditional regulatory management tools and the interface between domestic and international rulemaking.
IRC COUNTRY REVIEWS
The country reviews provide an in-depth understanding of national IRC efforts, focusing on:
- the policy and institutional context for IRC
- the unilateral efforts of countries to embed international considerations in domestic rulemaking (e.g. in regulatory policy tools such as RIA, stakeholder engagement; the adoption of international standards; etc)
- the co-operative efforts on regulatory matters, bilaterally, regionally or multilaterally
