Feedback period

Feedback status: Open

The Commission would like to hear your views.

Once the Commission has decided on a legislative proposal and put it forward for adoption by the EU Parliament and Council, you can respond to the proposal and accompanying impact assessment. The feedback period will close 8 weeks after the proposal is made available in all EU languages. You can choose between having your feedback:

  • published with your personal details or organisation's details, or
  • published anonymously (make sure attachments don't contain any personal details)
Once submitted, your feedback will be immediately published on this site. We'll review published feedback to check it complies with the rules for feedback and suggestions. If it doesn't, it will be removed. You will not receive an individual response, but the Commission will present a summary of the feedback received to the Parliament and Council so that your views can be part of the legislative debate.
