Today Australia is hosting the 8th OECD* annual conference on measuring regulatory performance in Sydney.

The conference is part of an ongoing OECD programme that helps member countries explore and demonstrate how improvements to regulatory policy and governance can benefit business and citizens.

This is the first time the conference will be held outside of Europe. It brings together global experts and policy makers for in-depth discussions around the theme of “Realising Impact: The Role of Institutional Frameworks in Regulatory Policy”.

Insights from the conference will feed into the work of the OECD’s Regulatory Policy Committee. This includes: the OECD Best Practice Principles on stakeholder engagement in regulatory policy, evaluation of regulations and regulation making, the Regulatory Policy Outlook series, and future work focussing on institutional arrangements to support quality regulation.

Key speakers include: the Hon. Victor Dominello MP, NSW Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation; Mr. Youngchul Kang, Deputy Minister for Regulatory Reform, Office for Government Policy Coordination, Korea; Professor Gary Banks, Dean of ANZSOG; Dr Jenny Gordon of the Productivity Commission; and Professor Michael Hiscox, Head of the Behavioural Economics Team of the Australian Government.

The Commonwealth Government has partnered with the OECD and the NSW Government to deliver the conference.

*Working with over 100 countries, the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) is a global policy forum that promotes policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
