Smart Regulation

To ensure that EU action is effective, the Commission assesses the impact of policies, legislation, trade agreements and other measures at every stage - from planning to implementation and review.

Before the EU takes action

  • The Commission publishes roadmaps describing planned initiatives
  • Commission impact assessments examine potential economic, social and environmental consequences.

After EU action

  • following implementation, initiatives are evaluated to check their performance
  • REFIT (Regulatory Fitness and Performance Programme) identifies opportunities to reduce regulatory burdens and simplify existing laws.

Public consultations

At various stages of the process, businesses, private individuals and organisations can express their views through public consultations.
