JC&A placed a full-time regulatory reform expert in Kyiv for two years to work with the State Council on Regulatory Reform and Entrepreneurship (SCRPE). Our expert, backed up by our senior experts in Washington, provided day-to-day technical assistance to SCRPE, including diagnostics, solution design, implementation assistance, and legal drafting to improve Ukraine’s legal and regulatory environment for business growth. We assisted the government in designing and carrying out the guillotine, which was simultaneously launched at the national level and in many Oblasts. The resulting effort was a massive national reform that eliminated many costly and outdated Soviet laws. We also provided extensive training on RIA to hundreds of civil servants at the national and regional levels. We advised the government of Ukraine on how to improve its regulatory framework law, including the design of RIA.
