Status: Complated
Project Milestones: Start date: 04.04.2014 End Date: 27.06.2014

The objective of the project was to produce a pilot RIA on the draft Code on Spatial Planning and Construction in order for the regulators to make an informed decision. The project included a training phase to build the capacity of the ISET Policy Institute (and two other Georgian organizations) to perform the Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA). The ISET-PI team performed a pilot RIA on the draft Spatial Planning and Construction Code.

ISET-PI and the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia (MoESD) agreed to assess one aspect of the proposed code a procedure to test the qualifications of professional building designers. The RIA provided an assessment of whether any of the testing options will improve the current situation, and, if so, which proposal carries the largest net benefits.
