Regulatory Enforcement and Inspections in the Environmental Sector of Peru
To meet their policy objectives, regulations must be accompanied by a carefully designed
and well-implemented enforcement strategy, including inspections. This report provides
an assessment of the enforcement and inspections strategy in the environmental sector
in Peru along with recommendations to strengthen this strategy. The report evaluates
the policies and legal framework of the Environmental Evaluation and Enforcement Agency
of Peru, as well as its practices and the resources employed in enforcement and inspections
activities. It also offers policy options to improve performance. The benchmark for
the comparative analysis is the OECD Regulatory Enforcement and Inspections Toolkit.
Using a checklist of 12 criteria, this Toolkit provides a simple tool for assessing
the inspection and enforcement system in a given jurisdiction, institution or structure.
