French PM mainstreams oversight of regulatory quality

On 19 February, the Prime Minister's private office signed a new circular (standing instruction) to ministries to present an updated policy for simplifying the regulatory environment, tackling both the stock and the flow of regulation, and more effective consultation of stakeholders, in keeping with the interministerial action plan defined in December. Steering and coordinating are to be handled inside the Secrétariat Général du Gouvernement by Ms C. Vérot, deputy to the head of the general secretariat, "in charge of simplification." Ms Vérot replaces Mr R. Bouchez, the Simplification Commissioner since November 2010 (see his last annual report reported on this blog) with an extended mandate including implementing regulatory simplification measures decided by the interministerial committee (CIMAP). The circular also states that she will be liaising with two other simplification efforts, directed at local authorities (MPs Lambert and Boulard) and business (MP Mandon) and reminds the ministries of the different simplification agendas they must prepare by the end of June 2013.
