This chapter analyses the overall consequences of two decades of ethical regulation. The assessment is based on the operational experience of the regulators themselves. It analyses the initial thinking by the political authorities, the CSPL, and the regulatory agencies about which models are appropriate for each particular public-life context and how this thinking has evolved. The chapter draws the themes of the book together to answer a series of questions . Has what has been built led to a better public understanding of what works? Is there evidence of regulatory mission-creep, either on the part of the authorities in designing ethical regulation, or the regulators in implementing it? Have regulatory agencies themselves learned to foster cooperative working relationships with those actors over whom they have regulatory authority, and with those actors to whom they are themselves accountable? What lessons if any should we draw from the experience of the last twenty years?
