Finnish Council of Regulatory Impact Analysis

Based on Prime Minister Juha Sipilä's Government Programme, an independent Council of Regulatory Impact Analysis was established at the Prime Minister's Office in December 2015. The Council is responsible for issuing statements on government proposals and on their regulatory impact assessments.

The Council aims at improving the quality of bill drafting and, in particular, the impact assessment of government proposals. It also aims to develop the overall bill drafting process including the scheduling and planning of government proposals and bill drafting.

The Government appointed the Finnish Council of Regulatory Impact Analysis for the term 15 April 2019 to 14 April 2022. The first Council of Regulatory Impact Analysis was appointed for the three-year term that started in 2016. The government plenary session appoints a chairperson and a maximum of eight members to the Council of Regulatory Impact Analysis. The Council then elects two vice-chairpersons from among its members. The term of the Council is three years and its membership appointments are based on personal expertise. While serving as members of the Council, the persons may not represent any stakeholder organisation but they may be employed by such organisations.
