These are entities such as the FCC(Federal Communications Commission) and FAA(Federal Avaition Administration). They are formed and accorded power by Congress to regulate a specific industry. Within the authority granted them by Congress, they have the power to form and enforce their own regulations.

AnswerIndependent regulatory boards and commissions essentially are boards and commission with ties to the government, that are separate from policy makers aka politics in order to achieve unbiased information and effective results.

There is very little that independent agencies and regulatory commissions have in common. The one thing they do have in common is that they lie outside of the traditional management structure of the executive departments.

Independent Regulatory CommissionsRegulatory Commissions have a special place in the federal bureaucracy. They are independent of the three branches of government. The President appoints the members with Senate approval. Unlike other bureaucrats, these agencies do not report to the executive branch and the President cannot fire them. Members of the commissions serve for a fixed term. The independent regulatory commissions were created to make rules for large businesses that effect the interest of the public. Not only do they regulate the conduct of these industries but they have the power to determine who will receive licenses to operate. They also have the power to investigate these businesses they regulate. Examples of Independent Regulatory Commissions are the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Reserve Board. MrV

Independent agencies are those that are not under direct authority of the President of the United States. Regulatory commissions were established by congress. However, they are both government entities.

Independent agencies- called "independent" because they are not part of the Cabinet. Three types: * Executive agencies * Government corporations * Regulatory commissions

Regulatory commissions are government bodies that are set up to keep certain things in check. Regulatory commissions prevent excesses and give direction on how a project or task should be undertaken.

the broad discretion these commissions have over regulatory policy means that a change in their membership can have a significant impact.

A regulatory commission is different from independent agencies because a regulatory commission takes into consideration the practices of an industry, like natural gas companies, and makes recommendations whether or not it is legal and feasible to raise rates in the industry. Independent agencies only look at one agency, not an industry.

Regulatory commissions examine individual industries and make sure that they are following the rules set forth by the Federal and or state government. Regulatory commissions also make sure that companies are following the rules of incorporation as it pertains to the stock market.

Independent agencies are given their name because they are not part of the Cabinet. They are agencies which are independent from the cabinet. Some examples may be executive agencies, government corporations, and regulatory commissions.

The government not accounted for by cabinet departments, independent regulatory commissions, and government corporations. Its administrators are typically appointed by the president and serve at the president's pleasure. NASA is an example

The officials, that are head of the commisions usually have longer terms than the president. So the president wouldn't be able to gain control over these commissions.
