Getting the most from the EBRD's legal assessments - interactive webtool

Since the mid -1990s, the Bank has developed a unique collection of analytical tools relating to the commercial and financial laws of transition countries. Each assessment evaluates core commercial laws using international standards as a benchmark. For example, the corporate governance laws are assessed relative to the OECD Principles of Corporate Governance and pledge laws are assessed against the EBRD Model Law on Secured Transactions. A feature of EBRD assessments is that they take a critical look at how laws actually work in practice, drawing on the views of local lawyers working in private practice. A key test is whether the existing framework delivers the results expected by investors.

The most recent assessment data is available below in an interactive database where you will be able to generate graphs and charts on the countries and sectors you are interested in. These assessments are published primarily for the benefit of those who make or influence legal reform policy in the countries in which the EBRD operates.

Country data set

The database can be accessed by each country.

Sector data set

In addition, the various EBRD assessments have been compiled into Country Law Assessments (7KB - SHTML). These documents provide the reader with the ability to judge the progress made by a single country in making its commercial law internationally acceptable. They draw on almost two decades of experience by the Bank in tracking legal transition across central and eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
