The OECD has launched a Public Consultation on Draft Best Practices Principles for improving Regulatory Enforcement and Inspections. The objective of this consultation is to present a basis for discussion on key issues as well as some key principles on which effective and efficient regulatory enforcement and inspections should be based in pursuit of the best compliance outcomes and highest regulatory quality. The principles address the design of the policies, institutions and tools to promote effective compliance and the process of reforming inspection services to achieve results. Feedback to this consultation is invited by 31 August 2013.
