“Better Regulation”: Organizational and Procedural Tools
The article argues that administrative procedures and organization can affect the quality of regulation. This premise creates the necessity to consider the matter starting from the point of view of enforcing regulation. The mentioned approach also implies the need for maintenance of rules, with systematic and periodic monitoring and evaluation of regulatory provisions, in particular in order to ensure the continuous connection between the objectives of regulation and the effects which regulation produces. Furthermore, procedural steps of a regulatory decision are analyzed, as well as the hard question of the relationship between politics and administration in procedures and in organization. Finally, good organization principles for regulators are described, with specific reference to parliament, administrations and independent authorities.
