President Luis Abinader, through decree no. 486-22, of August 24, 2022, issued the Regulations for the Application of Law no. 167-21, on Regulatory Improvement and Simplification of Procedures.
This regulation regulates in a more detailed way the processes for the dictation of regulatory norms by the different dependencies of the Executive Power.
Among its novelties, the configuration and development of the regulatory impact analysis stands out, which will allow evaluating the positive or negative effects that the regulations can produce, not only before their eventual entry into force, but also their application.
In addition, the regulation reconfigures the public consultation process, which was governed by decree 130-05 that approves the Regulation of the General Law of Free Access to Public Information.
In this sense, the proposals for significant economic and social adjustments will be subject to a public consultation process of 45 business days, while the others will be governed by a period of 20 business days.
The regulation was the product of a joint work of the Ministry of Public Administration (MAP), in its capacity as the body for supervision and coordination of regulatory improvement and simplification of procedures, and the Legal Consultancy of the Executive Power.
At the same time, it was the subject of a broad process of socialization with the relevant actors, for which it was submitted from June 1 to 28, 2022 to the public consultation procedure provided for in the aforementioned law no. 167-21.
The issuance of this regulation is part of the General Plan for the Reform and Modernization of the Public Administration drawn up in decree no. 149-21, under the coordination of the MAP.
