One of the Jacobs, Cordova & Associates most widely known innovations is a reform tool called the Regulatory Guillotine™. The guillotine is a reform strategy used by countries joining the OECD in the 1990s, and since then extensively refined and developed by JC&A as an orderly and transparent process to speed up regulatory simplification in countries undergoing rapid economic transition. In 2006, JC&A evaluated the guillotine processes and results in six countries in a paper, “Effective and Sustainable Regulatory Reform: The Regulatory Guillotine in Three Transition and Developing Countries.” We are continuing to evaluate regulatory guillotine reforms around the world.
