Comprehensive Regulatory Impact Analysis in Broadcast Regulation
April 27 - 29, 2015
How can regulators develop rigorous Regulatory Impact Analyses (RIA) that are used and inform next practices? That was the subject of the workshop “Comprehensive Regulatory Impact Analysis in Broadcast Regulation” provided by PURC to the Thailand National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC). The course explained how to frame the analysis, engage with stakeholders, align options with objectives, conduct cost-benefit and other forms of analyses, plan and implement policy changes, and review actual results, with a view towards next practices. The participants examined both the analytical challenges and the leadership challenges of performing an effective RIA. The over 40 regulatory professionals from the NBTC developed case studies that were evaluated by their peers and PURC faculty. The course was held April 27-29, 2015, in Bangkok.
