Regulatory reform concerns the improvement of the quality of government regulation. It is about designing and evaluating policies and regulations transparently, with evidence, and backed up by the views of businesses, citizens and other stakeholders. Regulatory reform can cover each policy area and aims for targeted regulation, achieving targets cost-effectively.
A combined (quantitative and qualitative) evidence-based approach
The aim of regulatory reform projects is to provide an accurate insight into the quantitative and qualitative impact of rules and regulations and identify regulatory burden reduction measures. We piece together a complete picture of all the effects of policies and regulations and do this together with all relevant stakeholders. We are then able to identify and help implement reduction measures designed to achieve direct and tangible improvements. In our experience, regulatory reform projects contribute directly to the prevention of future regulatory burden.
Objectives of regulatory reform
In case you engage us for a regulatory reform project, we aim to achieve the following objectives in close cooperation with you and your team:
- Policies and rules are based on evidence and a good understanding of their impacts.
- Policies and rules are formulated in such a way that regulatory burdens are kept to a minimum.
- The decision-making process is open and transparent.
- All stakeholders can contribute throughout the policy and law‑making process.
