Show Summary Details


This chapter presents the indicators of regulatory quality. It draws on the discussion of the notion of quality, the role of different stakeholders, the suggestions arising out of the literature, the new initiatives of Member States and the EU in terms of measurement, and the questionnaire dataset. The chapter first discusses the definition, purpose, limitations and types of indicators, and then illustrates how indicators of regulatory quality can be used in the EU. Finally, it develops indicators. It fleshes out the basic elements of a possible open method of coordination applied to indicators of regulatory quality. It argues that the only feasible way to make progress with quality measures is via facilitated coordination.
