Risk and Regulatory Policy
Improving the Governance of Risk
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) - Reviews of Regulatory Reform
A comprehensive overview of up-to-date OECD research and analysis on risk and regulatory policy. Each chapter deals with the fundamental challenges of today. They offer practical and considered measures for developing, or improving, coherent risk governance policies.
This edition includes the following sets of information along with documentation for each:
challenges in designing regulatory policy frameworks to manage risks
different cultural and legal dimensions of risk regulatory concepts across OECD
analytical models and principles for decision making in uncertain situations
key elements of risk regulation and governance institutions
the use of management-based regulation to help firms make risk-related behavioural changes
Includes analysis of the risk-based frameworks of regulators in five OECD countries (Australia, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal, United Kingdom) and across four sectors: environment, food safety, financial markets and health and safety; and the elements for designing formal guidelines for risk prioritisation, assessment, management and communication.
We expect governments to protect citizens from the adverse consequences of hazardous events. At the same time it is not possible or necessarily in the best interest of citizens for all risks to be removed.
A risk-based approach to the design and implementation of regulation can help to ensure that regulatory approaches are efficient, effective and account for risk/risk tradeoffs across policy objectives. Risk-based approaches to the design of regulation and compliance strategies can improve the welfare of citizens by providing better protection, more efficient government services and reduced costs for business. Across the OECD there is great potential to improve the operation of risk policy as few governments have taken steps to develop a coherent risk governance policy for managing regulation.
