Mexico publishes a new regulatory reform agenda

The Mexican Regulatory Reform Agency (COFEMER) has just informed this network of the content of the new policy of the recently appointed federal government by providing a translation into English of a key document “National Agenda for Regulatory Improvement”. The contents have been public for some time in Spanish on COFEMER’s site. They had also been presented by the DG of the agency at the 31st conference of Mexican States in April 2013. In summary, the new agenda calls for a strengthening of the policy by inter alia “promoting the creation of a public authority for the implementation of regulatory reform” at sub-national level, creating a joint forum with business, conducting periodic assessments of regulatory reform policies. In total, 23 reform options are outlined for implementation in coming months. Most follow closely OECD the advice contained in the 2012 Recommendation on regulatory policy and governance and emphasizes issues linked to sub-national regulatory authorities, with solutions which will be useful in other countries.
