One is the extent to which regulation involves a mix of public and private sector actors—for instance, with non-state organizations operating as intermediaries, auxiliaries, or self-controllers—particularly in the distribution of compliance costs between regulators and regulatees. Another is how densely populated the regulatory space or policy community is by separate institutions, and how far the risk involves multiple overlapping systems of regulation, as in the health-care example we gave in the last chapter, where each specific regime may reinforce or affect one or more of the others.

We therefore need to be able to give an account of both elements. 2 breaks down each of these elements into a further level of disaggregation. 2 here, to set the scene for a more detailed examination in the next six chapters. Elements of Regime Context The context of risk regulation regimes could in principle be characterized in any number of ways. But in the risk regulation literature, three contextual elements tend to be most heavily stressed. 2, those basic elements are: • 21 type of risk: the inherent nature of the hazard and associated risks (see Royal Society 1992: Chs 1–5); See Meidinger (1987); March and Olsen (1989); Brans and Rossbach (1997); Hall, Scott, and Hood (1999).

1 can be progressively unpacked, as we shall show later, to make more fine-grained distinctions among regimes—our second desideratum. A third is that it picks up regime features that are central to a range of debates about how regulation is or should be conducted—our third desideratum. For example, the link, or lack of it, between standard-setting and other aspects of regulation is the major focus of the literature on policy implementation and institutional coordination that we referred to in the last chapter.
