News from the Commission > Public consultation on the implementation of the Smart Regulation

European Commission logo The Commission wants to raise the attention to the public consultation on the implementation of Smart Regulation. The consultation aims to collect views and suggestions from citizens and external stakeholders on how to improve the quality, relevance and implementation of EU legislation, and to take account of the views of those affected by such legislation.

In its 2010 Communication on "Smart Regulation in the EU", the Commission set out a strategy to improve the way it designs, enforces, evaluates and revises European policies and regulations to ensure they benefit citizens and businesses. Nearly two years later, the Commission is taking stock of the progress made and drawing lessons from its experience. This stakeholder consultation aims to collect views and proposals to inform a Commission Communication reporting on Smart Regulation implementation. The target groups are public authorities, enterprises, business organisations, social partners, non-governmental organisations and the general public.

The period of consultation runs from 27 June 2012 to 21 September 2012.
