Body of Knowledge on Infrastructure Regulation

  • What is the state of art in regulatory practices?
  • How are regulators addressing emerging issues?
  • Which basic principles can be relied upon to guide regulatory decisions during times of change?

The answers to these questions, and many more, can be found on the Body of Knowledge on Infrastructure Regulation (BoKIR). This site is a comprehensive online resource for utility and regulation professionals, policy makers, and academics focusing on regulatory reform and the promotion of strong performance in energy, telecommunications, transportation, and water sectors.

The Body of Knowledge on Infrastructure Regulation contains summaries of regulatory literature, tutorials, self-paced tests, and more than 500 downloadable references for regulatory reform and performance improvements in infrastructure industries. The online glossary has been translated from English into Chinese, French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish. The site also provides guidance regarding Frequently Asked Questions.

This online resource was originally developed in 2006 and has benefitted from funding by The World Bank and the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF). PURC has led the effort to update content for the site.
