‘Regulatory Guillotine’: A New Look at Old Requirements

The Russian Economy: Achieving National Development Goals
Congress Centre, conference hall B2

In his Address to the Federal Assembly in February 2019, Russian President Vladimir Putin set the goal of radically revising the mandatory requirements that entrepreneurs and state-owned companies must observe in their operations. Many of these existing mandatory requirements are outdated and have not been reviewed for over 20 years. The ‘regulatory guillotine’ mechanism allows for excessive and ineffective regulation to be eliminated. A wide range of individuals, including representatives of the business, scientific, and expert communities, will be involved in revising Russian legislation. An analysis of the international experience of using the regulatory guillotine method indicates that the methods for carrying out such a reform are universal. Where should revision of the law begin? What obstacles arise in implementing the regulatory guillotine mechanism and how have they been dealt with abroad? How will business respond to the impact of the upcoming review on the administrative burden?
