This paper provides regulators who seek to (further) develop a risk-based supervision approach with a framework to systematically assess their current position and future options. A range of self analysis questions and practical examples guide regulators towards sensible design choices, given their particular context. The paper is focused on financial consumer protection regulators, but is equally valuable for regulators in other domains.
