Abstract

This article is aimed at proposing a suitable model and guidance for developing regulatory impact assessment (RIA) in Thailand. The RIA will help advancing the country’s regulatory reform and thereby improving its law-making process. At present, there are problems and obstacles in Thailand’s RIA due to the lack of clear and appropriate procedure and criteria for assessing the impact of regulation which causes implementation problems. Therefore, the researchers suggest Thailand should improve its RIA procedure and criteria in order to level with those of other countries and also suit its context.
