Your suggestions

At any time, you can tell us how you think existing laws and initiatives could be made more effective and efficient

All suggestions received will be published on this site, providing they comply with the house rules, and sent for review.

You can choose between having your suggestion:

  • published with your personal or organisation's details, or
  • published anonymously (make sure attachments don't contain any personal details)

Next steps

Your suggestions will be reviewed by the REFIT Platform, and may be reflected in their recommendations to the Commission.

If the Platform decides not to follow up a suggestion, an explanation will be sent to the person or organisation who submitted it.

The REFIT Platform does not consider suggestions related to:

  • draft laws currently in legislative procedure 
  • EU laws that entered into application less than two years ago
  • a planned or on-going consultation of social partners

The EU helpdesk Europe Direct provides an explanation to anyone who has submitted a suggestion that falls outside the mandate of the REFIT Platform.

Feedback period: anytime

    Die aktuelle ECE R 115* Norm bringt unnötige Bürokratie, "der Anlagenhersteller muss unter anderem nachweisen, dass das Abgasverhalten für jedes Fahrzeugmodell durch die Nachrüstung nicht negativ beeinflusst wird" Das Thema ist insbesondere in sofern unstrittig, da das Abgasverhalten grundsätzlich positiv beeinflußt wird.

    Change the WEEE directive (2012/19/EU) to include a requirement for producers to provide packages of information which are sufficient to enable easy re-use of products.
