Feedback received

Difference between consultations and feedback

Stakeholder consultations can be described as a formal guided process of collecting input and views from stakeholders, based on specific questions. This process is subject to requirements described in the Better regulation: guidelines and toolbox.

Feedback mechanisms give stakeholders opportunity to express general views, not based on specific questions provided by the Commission. Feedback process does not fall under guidelines.
