International Regulatory Cooperation

In 1991, the Conference adopted Recommendation 91-1, Federal Agency Cooperation with Foreign Government Regulators, which recommended practices such as information exchanges and establishment of common regulatory agendas to facilitate regulatory cooperation. Twenty years later, in 2011, the Conference adopted Recommendation 2011-6, International Regulatory Cooperation, which found that improved international regulatory cooperation was desirable and recommended best practices to promote effective cooperation and eliminate systemic barriers to coordination. Based in part on the Conference’s recommendations, President Obama in 2012 issued Executive Order 13,609, Promoting International Regulatory Cooperation. This project will examine federal agencies' experiences in the decade since E.O. 13,609 was issued and identify any remaining barriers to and potential best practices for implementing and supporting international regulatory cooperation.
