The Politics and Economics of Regulatory Impact Assessment
Reason for embargo
This Edward Elgar Handbook of Regulatory Impact Assessment provides a balanced account of what it is to design, make and implement regulatory impact assessment (RIA) across a range of major policy sectors, countries and regions. The notion of RIA comes from the North-American experience where regulators have to carry out an economic analysis of regulatory proposals, send it to oversight regulatory units in the executive, and publish it for notice and comment. In the USA and Canada for example, RIA applies to draft regulations generated by agencies with delegated regulatory power. It does not cover primary legislation, only secondary legislation, that is, the regulations of agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency in the USA or Health Canada.
