Description

  •  21/10/2015

The OECD indicators of regulation in non-manufacturing sectors (NMR) measure regulation at the sector level in 34 OECD countries and 22 non-OECD countries. They cover seven network sectors (telecoms, electricity, gas, post, rail, air passenger transport, and road freight) and five services sectors (retail distribution, accounting services, legal services, engineering services, and architectural services). The seven indicators of regulation in network sectors are aggregated into one indicator of regulation in energy, transport and communications (ETCR). The four indicators of regulation in accounting, legal, engineering and architectural services are aggregated into one indicator of regulation in professional services. The indicators for the five services sectors are available for the years 1998, 2003, 2008 and 2013, the indicatiors for the seven network sectors are available for the years 1975-2013, though not all years are covered for all countries.
