Impact of CoR work on EU legislation
The political work of the CoR aims to increase the influence of regions and local authorities in Europe.
The impact of many opinions can only be measured in the years following their adoption, once the legislative process has sufficiently advanced.
During this time, impact reports are established using the following resources:
- Reports from the European Commission on its follow-up to CoR's opinions
- CoR impact assessment sheets summarizing the political impact of the opinions on documents of the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council
- Media impact monitoring of opinions by the CoR press office
- A yearly average of 150 opinion related events organised by the CoR contribute to enhance the impact of the CoR opinions and resolutions in the EU legislative process.
