Introduction: public expertise as a competent participation of citizens in the management of the state affairs has a great potential in improving the quality of the decisions and regulatory legal acts. The regulatory impact assessment has the same objective, and at the stage of public consultations is implemented by the same subjects as public expertise. In this regard, it is necessary to identify the correlation of these concepts, to determine whether the regulatory impact assessment should only be carried out by interested subjects, or also by competent ones, which determined the purpose of this work. Methods: the methodological framework for the study is a set of methods of scientific knowledge, among which the main are the methods of analysis, formal-logical and comparative-legal ones. Results: the assessment of the regulatory impact in general and the stage of public consultations in particular in terms of their relationship with the procedure of public expertise are considered; the opinions of the scientists on this issue, as well as the provisions of the regulatory legal acts are analyzed. Conclusions: it is established that at present the procedure of the regulatory impact assessment is not public expertise. At the same time, these institutions are quite close. In the future, it is possible to conduct not only public discussions, but also full expert studies on the part of the civil society within the framework of the regulatory impact assessment.

Key words: public control, public discussion, public expertise, regulatory impact assessment, public consultations.
