Regulatory policy

Brochure on Regulatory Policy



Building a better world economy requires finding ways to design, apply and enforce better rules.

Angel Gurría, Secretary-General, OECD

The regulatory framework is essential to efficient markets and effective government. Regulatory governance is the concept which helps to link the management of regulations, regulatory tools, institutions and the participation of stakeholders.

  • What goes into sound regulation?
  • What are the tools, strategies and processes that will result in regulatory policy that truly contributes to economic growth and society’s well-being?
  • Just as importantly, what is to be avoided?

Better rules are needed that take into consideration what citizens want, what businesses need, and the likely social and environmental impacts. This is no longer the task of governments alone.

Drawing on the experience of senior regulatory officials and experts and the key messages of the first OECD international regulatory policy conference held in 2010, the OECD has prepared a brochure that presents, in simple language, pathways forward for regulatory policy makers. The findings, questions and insights it contains address, among many other topics, how to promote citizen engagement and open government, strengthen international regulatory co-operation and risk management; promote innovation and green growth; and develop capacity to face tomorrow’s challenges.
