This week, the OECD held a bi-annual meeting of its Regulatory Policy Committee, (RPC) a forum created in 2009 to assist member and non-member economies in building and strengthening their regulatory reform efforts. It is a platform to help countries adapt regulatory policies, tools and institutions, learning from each other’s experience. The proceedings are a mine of technical information for experts worldwide. See for instance the list of topics discussed at the Novermber 2011 session with links to the most important reference documents. At this week’s event, delegates shared updates on work done since the last session on most of the themes (Enforcement and Compliance, International Regulatory Cooperation, Measuring regulatory performance). New workstreams will probably address Regulation and Growth, Economic Regulators, while the work of reviewing regulatory policy in member and partner states (on demand) will continue. Delegates decided to do their utmost to disseminate and apply the Recommendation on Regulatory Policy and Governance adopted on 22 March.
