Initiative aims to showcase regulatory best practices
The Fundação Getulio Vargas Rio de Janeiro Law School is now receiving entries for the FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School Awards – Regulatory Best Practices. This initiative is linked to the school’s Regulation in Numbers research project. It is aimed at recognizing and highlighting regulatory best practices adopted by Brazil’s regulatory agencies, handing out awards for innovative initiatives in areas such as transparency, governance, participation, management and protection for the rights of consumers or users.
Federal, state and municipal government regulatory agencies can compete in these awards, either individually or in partnership with other organizations. This year, entries regarding initiatives adopted by regulators in response to the COVID-19 crisis will also be welcome.
The awards scheme, organized by the FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School’s Center for Research in Law and Economics (CPDE), aims to promote regulatory law in Brazil. To achieve this objective, the first goal is to highlight successful regulatory practices that have been developed in the country. It is hoped that these initiatives may in future be replicated and adapted by other institutions and agencies. The awards also enable people to learn to overcome challenges commonly faced by regulatory agencies. Finally, they encourage innovative and efficient ways forward in the realm of regulation.
Those interested in taking part should submit their entries no later than September 15, on the school’s website.
