OECD Framework for Regulatory Policy Evaluation, Launch of the report, Christiane Arndt

  1. 1. Launch of the publication “OECD Framework for Regulatory Policy Evaluation” Christiane Arndt, Programme Co-ordinator Measuring Regulatory Performance, OECD 6th Expert Meeting on Measuring Regulatory Performance 17 June 2014
  2. 2. Why? Evaluation of regulatory policy helps to: • Target scarce resources for reform efforts • Communicate progress • Generate the political support needed for implementing regulatory policy reforms
  3. 3. • Identify a framework that countries can take and apply in their own country as a diagnostic tool for regulatory policy evaluation • Develop options for a set of indicators for the domestic evaluation of the performance of regulatory policy • Provide consolidated information on how regulatory policy performance is currently evaluated across OECD countries How?
  4. 4. • Engagement of Steering Group • Expert papers (2011-2012) • Workshop in Madrid “Developing a Framework for Measuring Regulatory Performance in OECD countries” (2011) • Approval of Framework at the RPC meeting (2012) • Testing the Framework in Canada and the Netherlands (2012- 2013) • Survey on Regulatory Policy Evaluation in OECD countries (2012-2013) • Launch of publication (June 2014) Process
  5. 5. 1. There is no “holy grail” to simply demonstrate a causal link between the design and implementation of regulatory policy measures on the one hand and the achievement of strategic outcomes in the economy on the other hand 2. There is great value in systematically evaluating the design and implementation of regulatory policy, against the achievement of strategic regulatory objectives. 3. There is not enough data and information available to evaluate the functioning and impact of regulatory policy in most OECD countries. 4. Every OECD country can take steps to improve the evaluation of regulatory policy. Key policy conclusions
  6. 6. Framework for Regulatory Policy Evaluation Have the good practices been implemented ?  E.g. percentage of RIAs that comply with formal requirements  e.g. quality of post- implementation reviews Are requirements for good regulatory practices in place?  E.g. requirements for objective- setting, consultation, evidence-based analysis, simplification, risk assessments (e.g. indicators of regulatory management type), aligning regulatory changes internationally What resources are committed?  E.g. budget, staffing, expertise Have good practices helped to get quality regulation?  E.g. % of those involved in the regulatory process that think RIA has improved the quality of regulation as opposed to being a tick-the box-exercise; comparison of costs/benefits of initial regulatory proposal to those of actual regulation that was passed • Regulatory system • Regulatory impacts • Other factors that influence outcome Feedback loop Input Process Output Intermediate outcome Have strategic objectives for regulatory policy in general been achieved?  Economic: Net benefits (possibly in comparison with counterfactual and alternatives)  Efficient and streamlined: Compliance costs and burdens (possibly integrated into net benefits; Reduced enforcement costs)  Perception of regulatory quality in general  Improved compliance rate  Transparent and easy to access Regulatory quality Have strategic objectives for regulatory policy in a specific sector been achieved?  Effectiveness – market failure/problem/risk was solved or mitigated  Protection and benefits of the public, responsive and accountable Facts-based and perception based sector-specific indicators:  ENVIRONMENT e.g. SOx and NOx emissions, concentration of air pollutants in urban areas  SAFETY  HEALTH Regulatory outcomes Set strategic objectives for regulatory policy in general Set strategic objectives for regulatory policy in specific sectors (e.g. Health, Environment, Education) Design Implementation Strategic outcome I II III IV V easy hard OECD Framework for Regulatory Policy Evaluation
