Regulatory Guillotine

On August 2, AMCHAM’s Legal Committee welcomed key leaders to provide background informational on the Regulatory Guillotine and its objectives, process, and potential outcomes.

The ongoing Regulatory Guillotine Project, with the support of the Royal Thai government, aims to cut or amend certain regulations to improve the ease of doing business in Thailand. The research team, led by Dr. Kanate Wangpaichitr and Dr. Napatsorn Semson, invited our members from private enterprise to share their recommendations, for licenses and permits to be reviewed.


In 2017, the Royal Thai Government initiated a deregulation program to cut and amended certain regulations to improve the "ease of doing business" ranking for Thailand. Phase 2 of the Regulatory Guillotine Program will start soon and there is an opportunity for the American Chamber members in the private sector to participate. Phase 2’s focus was on reviewing national license and permit requirements with the objective to eliminate redundant licenses and streamline burdensome and complex procedures to promote efficient business activity and economic development.

For AMCHAM members, there is a form to fill out and submit. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Khun Tomwit at To access the Regulatory Guillotine Form, please click here.
