Launch of the OECD 2021 Regulatory Policy Outlook - 14th October

The OECD’s Regulatory Policy Division organized an event for the official launch of the 2021 Regulatory Policy Outlook.

The latter maps country efforts to improve regulatory quality in line with the 2012 OECD Recommendation on Regulatory Policy and Governance, and shares good regulatory practices that can help close the gaps. It provides unique insights into how countries approach the design, enforcement and revision of regulations, and suggests where countries can best focus their efforts to ensure that laws and regulations work as intended. Finally, it discusses some agile and innovative approaches to rulemaking such as regulatory sandboxes, behavioural insights, and outcome-based, data-driven and risk-based regulation.
