In 2011, President Obama signed Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, which instructs agencies to streamline their regulations to: (1) impose the least burden on society; (2) specify performance objectives instead of behavior or manner of compliance (3) maximize the cost/benefit ratio; (4) maximize the net benefits, including potential environmental, safety, economic, and public health advantages. The order also instructs agencies to perform a retrospective review of their current regulations as well as evaluate available regulation alternatives. Agencies are also advised to cooperate with international regulations, to streamline those regulations most crucial to their missions by working to eliminate duplicative regulatory burdens for persons engaged in international business.
