Public consultation on the revision of the Commission's Impact Assessment guidelines
The Impact Assessment guidelines belongs to wide set of smart regulation tools which help the European Commission to meet its policy objectives in an efficient way, at minimum cost, benefitting citizens, businesses and workers while avoiding all unnecessary regulatory burden. Impact assessment operates at the early stage of the policy cycle, when new proposals are being developed.
The Commission has committed to revising its Impact Assessment guidelines in 2014. Although these guidelines are intended for internal use in the Commission, the objective of this consultation, open until 3 September 2014, is to seek stakeholders' views on the draft revised guidelines.
AGE Platform Europe is preparing a response to this consulation which will be made available on our website in the coming weeks
