Paper Title

Albania Challenges in introducing Regulatory Impact Assessment


Mimoza Zeneli


The European Union Progress Reports have called for further efforts from Albania to establish a system for Regulatory Impact Assessment to assessments conducted on the progress of Regulatory Reform in the field of business registration, licensing, etc. Regulatory Reform is based on the principle of eliminating bureaucracy, barriers and subjectivity through the simplification of the existing regulatory framework and creation of a longer-term and sustainable system designed to raise the quality of legislation. Since October 2005, a declared priority of the Government of Albanian (GoA) has been the improvement of the legal framework, which impacts on business climate, through the establishment of a Regulatory Reform Task Force. The first question to be answered is if there is an economic need for the regulation. The quality of regulations is vital to the economic capability and well-being of a country. The economic analysis seeks especially to determine which government actions provide the greatest net benefits for the country as a whole and not only for specific sub-groups benefited from a policy (e.g. farmer, unions, government workers). That is, to consider if the country will be better off with or without this regulation. Referring to above, in this paper will present the steps doing by Albanian Government to establish a regulatory impact Assessment (RIA) system. Also we would like to analyzes the the Albanian benefits by introducing RIA system. Also based on questionary would like to analizes haw prepared are the institution to acept and implement RIAn.
