This briefing, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the JURI Committee, provides recommendations for better regulation in the EU by improving quality and reducing delays. It points at significant actual and potential benefits from EU legislative initiatives amounting to over €2,200bn as well as costs of slow Europe of €319 billion in lost annual benefits.

Since the early 2000s, better lawmaking has been high on the European agenda, and in April 2021 the European Commission published a new communication on better lawmaking. Parliament will debate and vote on the JURI committee's report on this communication during the July plenary session.

This publication creates a single point of access to all review clauses contained in legislative acts that were adopted during ...

Policy-makers are seeking to 'future proof' policies in order to be better prepared for disruptive and unanticipated events. The application of foresight methods such as stress-testing can help achieve this goal. This study introduces a methodology for the European Parliament to stress-test legislation. The method can be integrated into existing law-making and scrutiny processes in the European Parliament. It draws on lessons learnt and recommendations stemming from independent research that encompassed ...

In 2014, the Commission presented a proposal for a regulation on medicated feed with the aim to update and harmonise rules that dated from 1990 and were laid out in a directive. Patchy national implementation was causing difficulties for producers, animal holders and the single market. Due to the strong correlation between the proposal on medicated feed and the draft regulation on veterinary medicinal products, legislative work on both acts was being coordinated to assure consistency between their ...
