This recent BUDG study suggests that the seven EU agencies in the health and safety field demonstrate strong European added value and that this is widely recognised by Member States and other stakeholders including business. The agencies have played an important role in the COVID-19 pandemic. The study concludes that the cost of ‘non-agencies’ would be higher to the European Commission, national authorities and business than the current cost of the seven agencies to the EU budget.
