Better Regulation: ex ante impact assessments, ex post evaluations and more

Better Regulation (BR) is at the heart of the EU policymaking process and is born out of the desire for better governance. It is a vital tool in enhancing legitimacy and safeguarding democracy by ensuring policies and laws are future proof, fit for purpose, simple, evidence-informed, open and transparent. Regulatory ex ante impact assessments, ex post evaluations, stakeholder consultation and Strategic Foresight are essential instruments that ensure policy-making can: a) deliver results smarter and faster, on an increasing number of complex policy issues, as well as b) design, develop and assess effective, efficient and future proof policies.
