In the current context of the development of data-driven service provision and innovation, stimulated by the access to huge quantities and diversity of data, regulators are also increasingly relying on data provided by operators, and sometimes users, to assess compliance or quality of service, as well to supervise competitors behaviors. Rich data are also key to provide forecasts, analyze scenarios and inform the political decision makers and the public too.
Access and use of data however raise challenges, both in terms of development of specific capabilities by the regulator, and in terms of relationship with the operators for which data are both costly and strategic.
In this conference, we intend to address the issue of data collection, processing and publication, relying on the experience of various regulators and operators. We will thus articulate two perspectives :
- Data Collection : What kind of data can regulators access to and what are the best practices between regulators and operators to access the needed data? How can regulators access to third party data (as those of digital platforms) ?
- Data Processing and Publication : How can the regulators process the data and in which perspective ? What could be the relevant guidelines to publish them (raw vs. processed data; timeliness of disclosure, aggregated vs. individual data; etc.)?
Co-organized with the OECD Network of Economic Regulators, this conference will propose an overview of specific experiments and current practices in contrasted national and sectorial context; it will aim, in particular, at identifying best practices but also documenting opportunities and risks for all various stakeholders: operators, incumbent firms, new entrants, innovators, users, and the society at large.
Co-organised by The Club of the Regulators and with the OECD Network of Economic Regulators
