Indicators of Regulatory Policy and Governance

 

The Indicators of Regulatory Policy and Governance (iREG) present up-to-date evidence of OECD member countries’ regulatory policy and governance practices advocated in the 2012 Recommendation of the Council on Regulatory Policy and Governance.

 

The iREG indicators measure the three key principles of the Recommendation:

 

Stakeholder engagement

It helps to ensure that regulations focus on user needs by involving citizens, businesses, and civil society, makes regulations more inclusive and helps compliance with regulations.
