Under the REFIT Programme (Regulatory Fitness and Performance Programme), the European Commission has launched a 'Fitness Check' of the construction sector aiming at assessing the impacts, both positive and negative, of EU legislation on the sector.
The Fitness Check involves a comprehensive, evidence-based assessment of whether the current regulatory framework is proportionate and fit for purpose, and delivering as expected. Specifically, it assesses the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and EU added value of the legislative framework.
The Fitness Check focuses on 15 EU legislative texts in the policy fields of Internal Market, Energy Efficiency, Environment and Health & Safety. It analyses those provisions within these EU texts that may impact the construction sector.
An open public consultation took place between March and June 2016 to gather experiences, views and opinions of interested stakeholders and the public on the impact of current EU legislation for the construction sector.
