Online training & guidance material

The Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) has developed a massive open online course (MOOC) on regulatory impact analysis. The MOOC is designed to improve public servants’ abilities to undertake regulatory impact analysis and develop the skills required to prepare best practice regulation. The MOOC is suitable for participants with limited knowledge of regulatory impact analysis and for those participants who wish to consolidate or extend their existing skills and knowledge.
