Explanation:
From the examples I have seen in google under policy levers, the idea seems to be policies designed to move/encourage action in a particulat direction, rather than exert pressures. Having checked through various pages, including the ones below, I think the best translation would be INSTRUMENTOS DE POLÍTICA or MECANISMOS POLITICOS or similar

EG

For our purposes here I have chosen a broad definition to include most policies that attempt to affect the price, quality, and disposition of agricultural products as they leave the farm and move through the processing and distribution system to ultimate consumers. The list of major policy levers includes:

Price, situation, and outlook reports; other informational programs
Marketing orders
Grades, standards, and inspection services
Domestic and foreign advertising, promotion, and market development
Authorization and facilitation of cooperatives
Trade practice regulation
Antitrust policy
Food safety and nutrition regulation
Facilitation of research, particularly at USDA and land grant universities.
This is not an exhaustive list but does include the main domestic policy options.

The formal levers of monetary policy have been adjusted only infrequently in recent years. For the most part, inflation projections and statements have been sufficient to achieve the conditions we have sought. However, monetary policy cannot operate exclusively by statement. We believe that changing the underlying monetary policy lever may be beneficial. Specifically, there may be advantages to shifting from a daily target for settlement cash balances to the approach now more widely used abroad, in which the overnight interbank interest rate (the cash rate) is the key operating lever. Such a change would affect only the levers we use to implement policy. The relative importance of the various indicators the Bank looks at in deciding how much the levers should be adjusted would not change; for example, the weight given to interest rate movements when we assess the inflation outlook would not increase.

Creo que ése es el sentido en que se utiliza, aunque es muy posible que haya mejores formas de decirlo(lo pongo más bien como definición). Saludos.
