The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) published a report on best practice principles for regulatory policy on regulatory enforcement and inspections. The OECD opines that inspections are one of the most important ways to enforce regulations and to ensure regulatory compliance. The report aims to support improving regulatory enforcement through inspections, making them more effective, efficient, less burdensome for those who are inspected, and at the same time less resource-demanding for governments. The principles look at the design of the policies, institutions and tools to promote effective compliance and the process of reforming inspection services to achieve results. This is of particular interest because of the increasing regulatory focus on enforcement, inspections and sanctions.
