The European Commission recently presented its Communication on Better Regulation, proposing several improvements to the EU law-making process.

Better Regulation is a shared objective and responsibility of all EU institutions. The Commission will reach out to the European Parliament and the Council regarding their efforts to assess and monitor the impact of EU legislation and EU spending programmes. In addition, the Commission will cooperate more closely with local, regional and national authorities, and social partners on EU policymaking.

Some of the new elements of this Communication have already started in practice, such as the work of the Fit for Future Platform, which provides advice on ways to make EU legislation easier to comply with, efficient and fit for the future.
