This volume collects expert papers on: the trends and challenges of regulatory policy today; regulatory impact assessment; stakeholder engagement; and ex-post evaluation. These papers provide background material for the 2015 edition of the OECD Regulatory Policy Outlook. They summarise the knowledge to date on these topics and underline progress made by countries in establishing the conditions for good regulation as well as the remaining challenges.



Regulatory Impact Assessment and regulatory policy

This chapter looks at the application, success and challenges of RIA mostly by governments, with brief mentions, where appropriate, of experience within parliaments, independent agencies and other institutions (e.g. in trade negotiations). It provides a comparative analysis of the policies, institutional mechanisms and structures, methodologies and case study examples of applying RIA. It also reflects current situation across OECD and other countries in the implementation of Principle 4 in the 2012 OECD Recommendation of the Council on Regulatory Policy and Governance.
