Introduction and Methodology


Information on regulation and regulatory changes are crucial and important for economic entities, considering that they shape the rules of business on the market. Creating a business environment that stimulates economic development, implies fulfilling several important preconditions, which are: predictability and stable economic policy without frequent and sudden changes and greater legal certainty which is reflected in consistent application of laws, efficient administration and transparent communication with state authorities. It is for this reason that NALED formulated the Regulatory Index of Serbia - RIS with the aim of providing insight to both members and the general public on the manner and quality of enactment and implementation of regulations in Serbia.

RIS consists of six components, of which each follows a specific phase of law-making:

  1. Plan for amendments and enactment of laws, which should ensure predictability of changes in the legal framework in the Republic of Serbia (Component 1);
  2. Ex-ante regulatory impact analysis, which contribute to the validity of decisions, that is, the adoption of regulations with the best cost-benefit ratio (Component 2);
  3. Quality of stakeholder involvement, which shows the level of transparency of the law preparation and enactment process (Component 3);
  4. The manner of implementation of the law, primarily the efficiency and timeliness of the adoption of bylaws that enable the operational implementation of regulations (Component 4);
  5. Openness of institutions during the implementation of the law, which shows whether and to what extent the institutions are open to resolving doubts regarding the law in their jurisdiction during the implementation of regulations (Component 5);
  6. Monitoring the effects of a law, i.e. monitoring the regulatory burden imposed by the law and possible implementation problems that may lead to a new change in regulations (Component 6).

The Regulatory Index of Serbia is based on official data sources, including statistical data, insight into official reports and presentations of institutions and data obtained or submitted by institutions. It consists of 15 different indicators, each monitoring a particular aspect of the preparation, availability or implementation of regulations governing the economic environment. These indicators are publicly available, verifiable and individually relatively easy to measure.

In addition to the RIS index, the report also contains an analysis of the perception of businesses, civil sector and public administration on the level of development of public- private dialogue in Serbia and the manner of preparation and adoption of regulations. The analysis of perception served us to compare the actual data with the perception of stakeholders, which confirms the adequacy of the methodological approach.
