The Partnership of international organisations for effective international rulemaking




Promoting the quality, effectiveness and impact of international instruments


International Organisations (IOs) play a crucial role in supporting international regulatory cooperation and in helping countries achieve their public policy objectives. They facilitate cooperation and coordination among their members and play a key role in addressing cross-border challenges.

To further galvanise these benefits, the OECD established the "Partnership of international organisations for effective international rulemaking" (IO Partnership), a voluntary platform of IOs, academics and OECD Regulatory Policy Committee (RPC) delegates, to exchange good practices and promote greater quality, effectiveness, and impact in international rulemaking.

Meeting annually, the IO Partnership reflects on issues central to the international rulemaking processes, including transparency, inclusiveness, implementation, monitoring, promotion and coordination.

Through surveys, annual meetings and focused working group activity, a series of comprehensive analytical reports have been produced.
