Better Regulation: The next level for the VDL Commission

SAE is excited to join forces with ESAE for an C-level exclusive event to take place in person in Brussels and focus on central topic for European Associations: Better Regulation. The event will bring together EUCO officials with Association Executives to discuss the topic and the Commission’s priorities as we are approaching the middle of its term in office.

Better Regulation refers to the strategy to ensure that EU legislation delivers on its legislative objectives in the most effective and efficient way. To do this, the Commission uses various instruments such as comprehensive evaluations and fitness checks, impact assessments, consultations and compliance promotion tools. The recently adopted Better Regulation Communication reiterates the need for a call for evidence-informed policymaking, a stronger approach to stakeholder consultation, burden reduction and  the integration of strategic foresight. Most recently the European Commission released its Guidelines for Commission staff, building on its Communication.

From a public affairs industry perspective, progress is needed when it comes to public consultations, to ensure that quality and timing allow for appropriate input by all stakeholders. Another key area is related to impact assessments, where we believe the principle of objectivity should guide the Commission’s work. Finally, industry would like to see increased transparency in the functioning of Commission expert groups, which in turn would make the EU more open and all-inclusive.

Speakers and moderators to be announced in the coming weeks.

This event is for SEAP and ESAE members only, and spots will be limited. Not a member yet? Click here to check out the membership benefits and join SEAP, and here to check out the membership benefits and join ESAE.
