Contributing to law-making through public consultations and giving feedback

There are various opportunities to contribute to EU law-making as it evolves – from the preparation phase through to proposals for new laws and evaluations of how existing laws are performing.

Citizens can contribute to public consultations and various feedback mechanisms throughout the policy cycle and consult related documents as well as contributions received.

Search open and closed consultations as well as feedback opportunities or sign up to receive email notifications to stay informed of any new consultations.
