This conference, organised by the OECD and hosted by the European Commission, will discuss solutions and ways forward on improving the quality of regulations, with a particular focus on improving the efficiency of legislation and its capacity to address complex problems and be fit for tackling future challenges. The Better Regulation Practices across the European Union 2022 report is a starting point to address some of the current global challenges. The report provides an in-depth assessment of the application of the proportionality principle and information on how EU Member States conduct regulatory impact assessment in practice. These topics will be further explored during the conference, along with discussions on the use of regulatory management tools when negotiating and transposing EU laws, and how the use of better regulation can simplify the regulatory environment for businesses.
The event will feature as speakers Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič, OECD Deputy Secretary General Jeffrey Schlagenhauf, representatives of the European Parliament, the Council, the Committee of the Regions, the European Economic and Social Committee, and of civil society and business.
The CoR has a long standing cooperation with the European Commission on better regulation and in the Fit for Future (F4F) Platform. The Committee will be represented at the conference by Ulrika Landergren (SE/RE), Chair of NAT Commission and CoR representative in F4F who will speak on a panel dedicated to the perspectives on better regulation across the EU.
The conference will take place in Brussels on 28 June from 13:30 to 18:00.
