Bosnia/RS: Guillotine – Bosnia’s Streamlining Business Permits and Inspections Regimes Activity “SPIRA”

Jacobs, Cordova & Associates undertook the first Regulatory GuillotineTM in the Eastern Balkans in the Republika Srpska, working with Chemonics in the USAID/SPIRA project. Around 330 formalities and 2,473 inspection-related regulations were reviewed in four months. Some 21% of formalities and 58 % of inspection regulations were eliminated as unneeded for the Republic’s economic needs, and 23% of formalities were simplified. The results were announced by Prime Minister Milorad Dodik in September 2006. Since then two registries for inspection-related measures have been set up.
