The impact assessment of regulation is to use a series of logical procedures indispensable to the proposal of regulatory policy, based on collecting and comparing various kinds of information, to analyze the impact of regulatory policy on economy, society and environment. In practice, the USA, the EU and the OECD are typical representatives to have created and developed the systemic analytical approaches, which contain Cost-Benefit analysis, Cost-Effectiveness analysis and Risk analysis. This paper uses the traditional economic concepts and the analytical framework of new institutional economy to discuss the three analytical approaches, especially about Cost-Benefit analysis, and compare the advantage and disadvantage, which aims to be used for reference to the development of theory and practice in Chinese government regulatory activities.
