OECD: Regulatory Barriers to Competition in Professional Services workshop

Regulatory Barriers to Competition in Professional Services

Aim of the workshop

A vibrant economy requires a supple regulatory framework for professional services that fosters innovation and effiiociency and growth, and ensures good quality for consumers, while taking account of country-specific legal traditions. Achieving this objective requires striking the right balance between guaranteeing that competition is effective, and addressing the market failures that characterise the provision of professional services.

The aim of this workshop is to hold a fruitful discussion on this theme by sharing new contributions on the theory of regulation, recent empirical studies assessing the links between regulatory constraints and economic variables, and lessons from regulatory reforms, with a variety of stakeholders and experts.

This workshop will also contribute to the revision and improvement of the OECD Product Market Regulation Indicators on professional services that, for the past twenty years, have measured barriers to competition arising from regulation in these sectors .

The focus of the discussion will be on the six professions included in the Product Market Regulation Indicators: lawyers, notaries, accountants, civil engineers, architect and estate agents.
