As “market referees”, regulators need to be constantly alert, monitoring trends as well as assessing the impact of their decisions. What should be measured? Is it possible to attribute impacts to regulators’ decisions? How to make effective use of what is measured? How should the organisational structure and governance be optimised? Addressing these questions effectively can ultimately determine whether trains will run on time, there is clean water in the tap, lights switch on, the telephone and internet work and there is cash in the ATM machines. To help regulators in their quest to better evaluate their performance, the OECD has developed a Performance Assessment Framework for Economic Regulators (PAFER) that looks at the institutions, processes and practices that help regulators improve their organisational impact, based on the premise that governance matters for the performance of regulators.
