Rethinking and modernizing international rulemaking to design better policies for the 21st century
Dr Martin Milton, Director of the BIPM, together with the heads of Secretariats of other international organisations (IOs), participated in the OECD event: "Rethinking and modernizing international rulemaking to design better policies for the 21st century". The virtual meeting was held on 13 September 2021 as part of the 8th Annual Meeting of International Organisations within the context of the IO Partnership.
The event gave Dr Milton the opportunity to emphasize the critical role of the organisations, in particular to draw attention to the role of members in underpinning effective international rulemaking.
The Compendium of International Organisations' Practices : Working Towards More Effective International Instruments, available at https://www.oecd.org/governance/better-international-rulemaking/compendium/, the first common tool developed collaboratively by some 50 IOs to improve the quality was launched during the 8th Annual IO Meeting. The IO Compendium lists the BIPM practices such as World Metrology Day, CBKT Programme, CIPM MRA Review, JCGM, etc. in five core focus areas. The BIPM is represented in WG2 (implementation of international instruments), WG4 (evaluation of international instruments) and WG5 (IO coordination – as a focal point).
The OECD established the Partnership of international organisations for effective international rulemaking (IO Partnership) as a voluntary platform of IOs, academics and OECD Regulatory Policy Committee delegates, to exchange good practices and promote greater quality, effectiveness, and impact in international rulemaking.
