Shaping the Future of Regulators

The Impact of Emerging Technologies on Economic Regulators

image of Shaping the Future of Regulators

The pace and scope of emerging technologies are creating a sea change for governments and for regulators. They challenge economic regulation by blurring the traditional definition of markets, for example, and by transcending administrative boundaries domestically and internationally. At the same time, the digital transformation is an excellent opportunity for regulators themselves to harness the power of data and digital tools to improve regulation and its delivery. Seizing this opportunity will require fit-for-purpose regulatory frameworks and governance arrangements. This report brings together case studies submitted by members of the OECD Network of Economic Regulators that highlight how regulators have analysed and tackled these issues. The case studies span nine countries and a wide range of sectors (communication, transport, energy, environmental protection) and provide concrete examples of how regulators are responding to innovation in the sectors that they oversee.

The text below reproduces verbatim the translation in English of a recommendation (atto di segnalazione) that the Italian Transport Regulation Authority addressed to Parliament and Government in 2015 as a result of its monitoring of the evolution of the markets for non-scheduled road transport passenger services, and in the context of emerging transformations on both the demand and supply sides thereof. The English courtesy translation of the recommendation is available at the following internet address: https://www.autorita-trasporti.it/atti-di-segnalazione/recommendation-to-the-italian-government-and-parliament-non-scheduled-road-transport-passenger-services-taxi-car-and-driver-hire-and-technology-mobility-services/?lang=en. The Italian original version is complemented by a set of proposals for amending existing legislation, which are not reproduced here.
