New directions for SCM (compliance costs)

OECD has announced an important workshop, which will be held on 11-12 June in Berlin, hosted by the German Federal Chancellery and the National Regulatory Control Council. The event aims to share approaches and techniques for measuring compliance costs and to identify strategies for cutting regulatory costs that contribute to re-boosting growth and to delivering improved welfare outcomes. The workshop will enable the exchange of experience and good practices and focus both on the technical challenges in measuring compliance costs and benefits of regulations, and on the political challenges in reducing costs to stimulate growth and maximise welfare outcomes. This workshop is part of the programme on Measuring Regulatory Performance.
On the workshop page are posted a number of interesting documents, some not published elsewhere on the net, starting with the key paper from Germany: Guidelines on the Identification and Presentation of Compliance Costs in Legislative Proposals by the Federal Government.
As background to the techniques which will be discussed in Berlin, see a joint presentation between Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden at a similar event last year in Poland.
