image of Better Regulation in Europe: Spain 2010

This report maps and analyses the core issues which together make up effective regulatory management for Spain, laying down a framework of what should be driving regulatory policy and reform in the future. Issues examined include: strategy and policies for improving regulatory management; institutional capacities for effective regulation and the broader policy making context; transparency and processes for effective public consultation and communication; processes for the development of new regulations, including impact assessment and for the management of the regulatory stock, including administrative burdens; compliance rates, enforcement policy and appeal processes; and the multilevel dimension: interface between different levels of government and interface between national processes and those of the EU. This book is part of a project examining better regulation, being carried out in partnership with the European Commission.


Executive Summary

Since the return to democracy, Spain has enjoyed one of Europe’s highest economic growth rates, and developed into the world’s 12th largest economy. The Spanish government has implemented a wide range of economic and structural reforms over the last three decades, focusing on deregulation and liberalisation, which has reduced the role of government in the market.
