As part of its Good Regulatory Practice (GRP) Program, the World Bank requested the services of JC&A to support the preparation and delivery of an introductory training to GRP to be delivered to the better regulation technical team of the National Competitiveness Council (CNC or Competitividad) of the Dominican Republic. The purpose of the training was to provide a first but comprehensive view on the core elements of GRP, including tools to improve the stock and flow of regulation (public consultation, RIA, forward planning, ex post review, administrative simplification, etc.) as well as regulatory oversight functions required for proper implementation and functioning of a regulatory governance system. This introductory training also zoomed in on RIA, including a general overview of elements of a RIA system and methodology as well as RIA document development and scrutiny. The training was delivered on a face-to-face modality in Santo Domingo, during a 3-day period in May 2019.  JC&A consultants prepared presentations and other supporting materials for the delivery of the training sessions (May 15-17), which included the following topics:

  • Introduction to GRP and regulatory reform
  • Administrative simplification and reduction of burdens
  • Regulatory guillotine
  • Ex-post review
