The IIA on Better Law-Making brings changes across the full policy-making cycle, from consultations and impact assessment to adoption, implementation and evaluation of EU legislation. The text was negotiated with the Parliament and Council and entered into force on the day of its signature. This replaces the previous Interinstitutional Agreement on Better Lawmaking (2003)pdf(39 kB) Choose translations of the previous link  and the interinstitutional 'Common Approach to Impact Assessment' (November 2005)pdf(39 kB) Choose translations of the previous link .

Cooperation with the Committee of the Regions, and in particular their 'Subsidiarity and proportionality analysis kit', has helped the Commission to improve the guidance on how to analyse subsidiarity and proportionality in impact assessments. The Committee has also enabled the Commission to consult their Subsidiarity Monitoring Network and EUROPE 2020 Monitoring Platform to reinforce the analysis of regional and local aspects in impact assessments (see on-line surveys on these consultations).
