The Outlook provides the first evidence-based, cross-country analysis of the progress made by OECD countries in improving the way they regulate. It reviews the use of 3 key tools of regulatory policy: RIA, stakeholder engagement, ex post evaluation, and proposes an ambitious and forward looking agenda for the use of regulatory policy to promote growth and well-being.
Compared to previous editions, the 2021 Outlook covers new topics suh as the use of regulatory management tools at the subnational level, access to justice and risk-based policy-making. The 2018 edition covers topics not previously adressed in 2015, such as regulatory oversight, regulatory enforcement and delivery, international regulatory co-operation and the use of behavioural insights in regulatory policy.
The Regulatory Policy Outlook is complemented by detailed two-page country notes for all OECD member and accession countries and the European Commission, displaying countries’ results for all three composite indicators.
The indicators form the basis for a chapter on Regulatory Governance in the Government at a Glance publication series. The chapter provides key indicators and analysis on global trends in regulatory policy and governance, stakeholder engagement, RIA, ex post evaluation and the governance of regulators.
