The Consultation planner alerts stakeholders to public consultations and targeted consultations on policy initiatives, showing:
- the name of the initiative;
- the estimated timing of its consultation;
- the unit in charge;
- stakeholders the service intends to consult.
The choice of stakeholders is left to the risk managers in charge of the proposal. In most cases DG SANTE's consultative groups are consulted. For very technical measures, specific stakeholders are targeted.
The approach however, is not restrictive. Stakeholders can express their interest in being consulted on the listed initiatives by contacting the unit in charge.
The Planner is updated twice a year – in July and December.
