Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA): Institutional Design and Methodological Approaches

CEUs: 6.0

Course Description

Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) is a methodological approach to critically assessing the positive and negative components of proposed and existing regulations and non-regulatory alternatives. It is an important element of an evidence-based approach to policy making. The Organization for Economic and Co-operation Development (OECD) analysis shows that conducting RIA within an appropriate systematic framework can underpin the capacity of governments to ensure that regulations are efficient and effective in a changing and complex world.

Successful implementation of RIA can be administratively and technically challenging. This course is designed to assist policy makers, regulators, and the business community in designing and implementing effective analyses. Through learning about the RIA Roadmap, the course will use case studies of actual RIAs, including contextual evidence and result scenarios. Participants also undertake action planning and will learn how to form the legal/policy framework for RIAs and conduct RIAs in their own countries and organizations.
