On 16 November 2012, the RIA Manual used in Mexico was modified to introduce two additional types of RIAs: High-impact RIA with competition impact analysis and moderate-impact RIA with competition impact analysis. In the same spirit of aligning RIA evaluation to OECD best practice, Mexico’s government decided to include a specific section in the RIA requirements to assess the effects on competition of new draft regulations.
A workshop was organised to train federal officials from ministries and agencies responsible for drafting RIAs when regulations may have significant impacts on the competitive structure of markets. RIA is probably the most important tool used by OECD countries to control the quality of the flow of regulations.
HIGHLIHTS OF THE WORKSHOP:
Capacity Building Seminar on Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA), Mexico City, 15-18 October 2012
Annual OECD-Mexican Ministry of Economy Conference in “Regulatory Improvement and Competition as foundations for Competitiveness”, January 2012
