ANDREY TSYGANOV: ASSESSMENT OF NEW METHODS OF REGULATION IS DETERMINED BY THE RISE IN LIVING STANDARDS
On July 24, 2020 the FAS Russia held a regular meeting of the Methodological Council to discuss preparation of the final report for an expanded session of the FAS Russia’s Board
During the meeting, representatives of departments presented updated materials for 2019 and the most significant results for the 1st half of 2020. In particular, the participants of the Methodological Councilreviewed successful practices in preventing unfair competition, digitalization and transformation of the business climate in various sectors of the economy, antimonopoly control in retail trade and a number of other areas.
Besides, the experts discussed the tasks that will be addressed by the FAS Russia until the end of 2020, as well as provide a preliminary assessment of the social and economic effects of the regulations that were prepared by the FAS Russia, adopted in 2019 and entered into force.
“There is no generally accepted standard by which we can measure the quality of new regulatory methods. The social and economic impact of regulatory legal acts initiated by the FAS Russia independently in the form of orders or in the form of draft laws and Government resolutions should be analyzed through the prism of results: How well the new acts turn out for the economy? Has the quality of life of businesses and citizens changed for the better?” the Chairman of the Methodological Council of the FAS Russia Andrey Tsyganov noted.
At the meeting, officials of the Antimonopoly service also paid attention to the draft “white and black books” of pro-competitive and anti-competitive regional practices for 2019.
The extended session of the FAS Russia’s Board will be held on September 28 - October 2, 2020.
