Trends, Practices and the Way Forward

image of Improving Regulatory Governance

Regulations help governments support economic growth, social welfare and environmental protection. The challenge is to design clear, coherent, and efficient regulations and to effectively implement them. This report presents cutting-edge thinking in how to facilitate good regulatory design and implementation. Jointly developed by the OECD and the Korea Development Institute, the report builds on a series of expert papers that analyse the experience of Korea and other OECD members in designing and implementing regulatory oversight, stakeholder engagement, regulatory impact assessment and ex post evaluation. It identifies forthcoming challenges, possible solutions and areas for further analysis that can help governments in OECD member and partner countries improve their regulatory systems.


Insights on improving regulatory governance

This research brings together leading-edge thinking on trends and experience in facilitating regulatory reform through institutional improvements. The chapters reflect the outcomes of research and workshops conducted jointly by the Korea Development Institute (KDI) and the OECD over the course of 2015-16. This introduction provides a short primer on regulatory policy and governance drawing on the work conducted by the OECD and presents some of the key insights from the study. The chapters are organised in four sections, presenting the experience of Korea and other OECD countries in: regulatory oversight; stakeholder engagement; regulatory impact assessment; and ex post assessment.
