Towards a Better Management of Risks

image of Risk Management in Regulatory Frameworks
Recent years have been marked by many catastrophic events both natural and man-made. Close interconnections mean that the impact of these crises has been felt throughout the world. Although many tools have been developed to manage risks successfully, there can be no doubt that many of the losses we have recently witnessed could have been prevented or minimized, in the context of an effective and well-balanced regulatory system. The goal of this publication is to provide insights and recommendations for policymakers on designing regulatory systems that result in an efficient, effective and transparent management of risks. It introduces a holistic model of a regulatory system, function by function and with real-life examples, which is based on the objective of managing risks effectively.



Executive summary

The UNECE Working Party on Regulatory Cooperation and Standardization Policies started its work in 1970 as a forum for dialogue among regulators and policymakers. Since then, it has been working on a number of topics, including technical regulations, standardization, conformity assessment, accreditation, metrology, market surveillance and risk management. It makes recommendations that promote regulatory policies to protect the health and safety of consumers and workers and preserve our natural environment, but without creating unnecessary barriers to trade and investment.
