Among the many possible approaches to managing risks, regulation is one of the most frequently used. Regulation comes in many forms: legislation, public or private regulation, certification and standards, etc. Regulatory performance, efficacy or cost-effectiveness is often a challenge. IRGC is particularly interested in how ‘Planned Adaptive Governance or Regulation’ can improve overall performance and acceptability in fields marked by fast technological change and uncertainty.
