The aim of the public consultation was to gather input on:
- possible promotion of this type of enterprise
- the need and possible advantages of a proposal for a Regulation establishing the legal statute for a European Mutual Society
The Commission received 305 responses.
The Commission is looking into the possibility of proposing:
- a Regulation containing the rules on the creation of a European Mutual by enterprises from different EU countries
- a Directive laying down rules for employee involvement in the decision making process of their company, along the lines of the model used for the statutes for a European Company and a European Cooperative Society.
