OUR SERVICES:Regulatory Impact Assessment
We are always working to provide our clients with new tools with which to influence the policy process, and Regulatory Impact Assessments are one of the most useful means of doing so.
As the policy process in Central Europe becomes more complex and professional, so clients need to make full use of specific and concrete arguments to make their case. Providing objective and sound information to decision-makers who are frequently under informed is one of the most useful services that advocacy specialists can perform for their clients.
By working with a range of specialists we are able to provide you with custom-made Regulatory Impact Assessments of the decisions that you are seeking to influence, where they are legislative or administrative. A well-written RIA will provide a detailed and systematic appraisal of the potential impacts of a new regulation in order to assess whether the regulation is likely to achieve the desired objectives. Usually there is a high risk that regulatory costs may exceed benefits and there is a need to prove that a regulation will be welfare-enhancing from the societal viewpoint.
We are happy to discuss with you the process by which we are able to produce an RIA for your issue on a case-by-case basis.
