The sector PMR indicators measure the regulatory barriers to firm entry and competition at the level of individual sectors. The sector PMR indicators cover eight network sectors (electricity, natural gas, rail transport, air transport, water transport, road transport, fixed e-communication and mobile e-communication) and eight service sectors (retail distribution, retail sales of medicines, and six professions: accountants, lawyers, notaries, civil engineers, estate agents and architects).
The PMR values range between (0) and (6) from the most to the least competition friendly regulatory regime. The information on laws and regulations is collected through a questionnaire and vetted by OECD experts. Information is based on laws and regulation in place on 1 January 2018. For the 6 covered professions, there is no single average indicator since some professions do not exist in some of the countries surveyed.
Some care should be taken when comparing the PMR indicators on individual professions across countries, because the activities that a specific profession undertakes may vary between countries.
