The OECD and the Mexican Supreme Audit Institution (Auditoría Superior de la Federación, ASF) launched the report Facilitating the implementation of the Mexican Supreme Audit Institution’s mandate: Regulatory Policy and Governance, whose objective is to provide elements for the ASF to undertake a comprehensive strategy to audit the performance of better regulation policy in Mexico, including tools, practices and methodologies, as well as the performance of regulatory bodies.
Laws and regulations should aim to protect human health, the environment, promote a safe workplace, as well as control monopolies and ensure the provision of quality services at affordable prices, such as electricity and telecommunications, among others. Better regulation ensures that these laws and regulations, including the procedures and formalities that derive from them, achieve their underlying public policy objectives in an effective manner, without imposing unnecessary costs on citizens and businesses.
This report is part of a collaborative project between the OECD and the ASF on regulatory policy issues, which included a three-day capacity-building workshop with experts from the OECD and the NAO. Over 160 ASF officials participated in the workshop.
