This chapter explains better regulation as public policy. It shows the theoretical implications of this approach and how better regulation can be analysed in a comprehensive framework that includes actors, principles, tools and measures. It also explains how contextual elements make a difference in the diffusion of better regulation policies. It means that we can appraise the current discourse in OECD and EU circles. It shows that the benchmark for the appraisal of meta-regulation is a concept of quality that covers both the process through which rules are produced and the economic efficiency of rules. This focus enables us to bring the participatory and democratic quality of governance back into the analytic framework. The second part of the chapter decomposes the complexity of regulatory quality.
