The Better Regulation Delivery Office is part of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and is responsible for transforming the way businesses experience regulation and inspection on a day to day basis. Good regulation is essential for protection of citizens and the environment but it can also support business growth and confidence and it is an important part of creating a better investment climate. Through IFUSE, DFID, IFC and the World Bank Group, BRDO helps other governments to improve business inspections, reducing barriers, costs and risks of doing business. This includes promoting risk based approaches, improving the skills and knowledge of inspectors and the effectiveness of regulatory bodies.
BRDO has worked with government ministries, agencies and inspectorates in Kenya, Liberia, Mozambique, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia amongst other countries and in 2012 brought together colleagues from more than 30 countries for the first international conference on inspection reform. The second international conference will be held in September 2014.
Inspection Reform: Breaking Down Barriers to Trade and Investment
Changing the way regulation is delivered
9 – 11 September 2014, London, UK
Inspection Reform: Breaking Down Barriers to Trade and Investment will explore how changing the way regulation is delivered on the ground can support greater trust and confidence to trade and invest. Improving the delivery of regulation has an important role in improving the business environment by supporting businesses to be successful whilst providing necessary protections to citizens, the environment and the economy.
This international conference is being organised by the UK Government Better Regulation Delivery Office and the World Bank Group, in partnership with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, OECD and with the support of the UK Department for International Development’s IFUSE programme.
The conference will build on the experiences shared at the first international inspection reform conference in November 2012. It will bring together evidence and practice from around the world, and provide an opportunity for countries working towards a common goal of a better regulatory environment for trade and investment to engage in dialogue with countries with similar reform contexts and share case studies.
