Experts of the Higher School of Economics took part in the meeting of the All-Russian Association of Fishery Enterprises, Entrepreneurs and Exporters
The Higher School of Economics has been actively cooperating with VARPE since August 2018. At the first stage (by December 2018), the university experts analyzed the regulatory policy in the fishing industry and identified more than five hundred potentially redundant, obsolete and duplicate requirements in the current regulatory legal acts. Since August, the analysis of regulatory standards has been expanded and the main attention has been paid to studying the costs associated with the regulatory standards (requirements) implementation in the fishing industry in order to prepare proposals for their abolition within the framework of the regulatory guillotine. This study is to be completed by May 2020.
The use of the standard cost model known in the international practice will help to identify and measure costs incurred by industry enterprises due to compliance with reporting requirements, the availability of various permits, additional equipment, as well as the features of the organization of the production process (overhead mileage and idleness of steam vessels, batch delay). All this is directly related to the program of optimization of control and supervision activities, increasing the competitiveness of domestic business.
Speaking at the meeting, Andrey Klimenko, Academic Supervisor of the Institute for Public Administration and Governance of the Higher School of Economics, head of the School of Politics and Governance, noted that as part of the evidence-based approach to regulatory policy, it is necessary to operate calculations, economic data, estimates of direct and indirect results of regulation, macroeconomic indicators, changes in investment programs in the industry, the volume and dynamics of the regulatory and tax burden. This will make it possible to make strategically sound decisions that are necessary for the state, business and citizens - both industry workers and consumers.
The collaboration of the Higher School of Economics with VARPE has another important result: two graduate students of the School of Politics and Governance of the Faculty of Social Sciences are invited to an internship at the VARPE administrative office, where they use the knowledge gained in HSE studying RIA and regulatory policy.
