The Regulatory Frameworks Dashboard is the GECKO regulatory supportive tool that aims to demonstrate new regulatory approaches for disruptive mobility innovations. It does so by assessing social, economic and safety impacts of regulatory schemes for the implementation of emerging and disruptive technologies in mobility for passengers and freight.
The objective of the Dashboard is to become a tool for policymakers that will help them measuring the level of compliance of business models and innovations with the regulatory schemes and governance models. To this extent, it will support their decisions on regulatory obligations, filtering the latest news of regulation changes and on upcoming directives.
In order to build the dashboard, the project has collected so far more than 135 regulations with different governance models (directives, market-based rules, experimentations) to build up a database of regulations on a global level. Regulations were analysed by assigning Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to perform impact assessments; by positioning them in the regulatory time scale process; and, by categorizing them by type of regulation.
This methodology allowed the first layout of the Dashboard to be created as a user-friendly interface, meant to support users in their search for information in the GECKO Regulatory Database.
The regulations collected in this database are filtered through different parameters, such as: the case study to which it relates (e-scooter, connected and automated vehicles, hyperloop, MaaS, etc.); the governance model or the policy instrument used to regulate the disruptive mobility innovations; the jurisdiction level at which it is implemented.
Regulations are presented with some context elements, such as their status of implementation, their jurisdiction level, and a short description with a link to the full text of the regulation. The analysis of regulations is then presented on the following columns: challenges addressed by the regulations, barriers lowered, risks to be monitored, the positioning in the time scale process (2RL assessment), and Key Performance Indicators that describe all the impacts brought by the regulation.
The final version of this tool will be developed by mid-2021 and designed following consultation with local authorities in order to develop a tool that will match their requirements.
