The establishment of dedicated regulatory bodies in charge of
regulating water services, whilst being recent, is nevertheless a
consistent trend among OECD and non-OECD countries. This report
presents a picture as of September 2014 of the governance
arrangements, operational modalities and use of regulatory tools
across a sample of 34 established water regulators. It relies on
the OECD Best Practice Principles for Regulatory Policy: The
Governance of Regulators to structure the information collected
through a survey exercise. It has been developed in close
co-operation with the OECD Network of Economic Regulators (NER).
The results from the survey show that the 34 water regulators show
generally a high level of adoption of good governance principles
and practices. They display functions and powers that are in line
with their objectives. Water regulators also show a strong culture
of consultation. Other areas, in particular evaluation of
regulatory impacts, could be further strengthened.
