OECD Reviews of Regulatory Reform
The forward notes that:
The review consists of three parts. Part I presents an overall assessment, set within the macroeconomic context, of regulatory achievements and challenges across a broad range of policy areas: government capacity for quality regulation, competition policy, market openness and specific issues such as multi-level regulatory governance. Part II summarises the detailed and comprehensive background reviews that were prepared for the policy areas on regulatory governance, both at federal level and from a multi level perspective. Part III summarises the background reviews on competition and market openness. All these background reviews have been considered and discussed by the relevant policy committee within the OECD. These chapters conclude with policy options for consideration which seek to identify areas for further work and policy development in the countries under review.
