Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter deals with the cross-national experience of the measurement of better regulation policies. The focus is on countries with experience in the development and management of tools aimed at assessing regulatory quality. It examines three non-EU countries, namely the USA, Canada and Australia. These are countries with a relatively long history of attempts to forge a quality assurance culture in regulation. The chapter then examines Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK. Australia, Canada, the UK and the USA have a robust network of quality assurance actors and also look at impact assessment beyond the issue of red tape. By contrast, Belgium, Denmark and the Netherlands focus on administrative burdens and are characterised by a simpler system of monitoring.
