Invitation to impact assessment event

An Impact Assessment Event, organised by DG Health and Consumer Protection (SANCO) with the support of UK Presidency and the Better Regulation Task Force (BRTF), will take place in Brussels on 26 October 2005. Members of the Impact Assessment community, government experts, and all other interested stakeholders are invited to take part in this event, which will be an opportunity to exchange views on DG Health and Consumer Protection’s progress on impact assessment, as well as to discuss Better Regulation and the challenges ahead.

Commissioner Markos Kyprianou and UK Cabinet Minister John Hutton will make the opening remarks at the event, and other keynote speakers will include Robert Madelin, Director General of DG Health and Consumer Protection, and Sir David Arculus, Chairman of the Better Regulation Task Force. The programme also includes presentations and open discussions on issues such as the SANCO Scoping Paper Guidelines, alternatives to better regulation, and the integration of SANCO policy objectives.
