Russian RIA takes step forward

1 July 2013 was a milestone for Russian RIA, which moved to the new level of expertise. Firstly, RIA will henceforth be prepared by regulators simultaneously with the development of new bills. The Russian Ministry of Economy will evaluate their quality. Secondly, draft regulations, impact assessments and public consultations summaries will be available on a single portal for legal acts. Thirdly, the scope of RIA has been extended to new policy areas (customs and tax regulations) and subnational regulations (the regional level, from 1 January 2014).
To share best practice between experts from the RF but also other CIS countries, a Facebook group named “Regulatory Impact Assessment in Russia” was launched in June 2012 to share news, event announcements, links to the latest research (including international), case studies and methodological approaches. By 30 June, 2013 the group, which brings together experts in evaluation of programs and policies, regulatory impact assessment experts from the federal and regional government agencies, representatives of business associations, and business owners, had already attracted more than 320 members, and the group continues to grow. In order to join this group you need to have a profile on Facebook, and just leave a request to moderators at https://www.facebook.com/groups/OPBRU/ (news from our Moscow correspondents.)
