1.3. Modern Approaches to the Codification of Regulatory Requirements: Between Tradition and Innovation

Track: 1. International Law. Rule of Law


The following issues will be discussed in the framework of the Discussion session:

  • implications of traditional approaches to codification in the present context (a code as a law);
  • use of state-of-the-art information technologies for codification;
  • codification as a way of redundant, obsolete and duplicate requirements elimination;
  • ‘one — in, two — out’ requirements updating method implementation;
  • most recent practice of laws and statutory instruments codification (a code as a set of different-tier laws and regulations);
  • impact of different sectors’ specifics on codification approaches (civil law, trade law, tax law, labor and employment law, criminal law, procedural law);
  • authority branches interaction: executive bodies’ role in codification and their interaction with legislative bodies: constitutional and organizational issues;
  • codification as a reform and codification as a continuous process: seeking the best solutions;
  • continuous codification procedures and the role of executive bodies in the process.
