An Innovation Check for Regulatory Impact Assessment

The Federal Government of Germany has set itself the objective of continually promoting and improving framework conditions that stimulate innovation. An Innovation Check Tool should therefore become an integral part of regulatory impact assessment. The BDI commissioned the study in hand to investigate the possibilities for developing and implementing such a tool in Germany. The tool should be used by all ministries for the implementation of a systematic analysis and presentation of the impact of proposed regulation on the ability of business in Germany to innovate.
