Better Regulation Package

Regulating More or Regulating Less?

Better regulation is not a novelty, but a continuation of previous efforts through different means. This time around, there were great expectations from the package and its influence on policy formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.

The Commission First Vice-President responsible for inter alia the better regulation portfolio, introduced five proposals under the Better Regulation Package – a proposal for an Inter-Institutional Agreement; communications on Better Regulation, Regulatory Scrutiny Board, and REFIT; as well as extensive guidelines on better regulation and impact assessments (IAs).
The Serbian Public Policy Secretariat of the Republic could take up valuable lessons from the Commission’s recent efforts at reform, particularly in terms of stakeholder participation in the process. This article will go through the main changes that the packages bring to conclude on their feasibility in the near future, and relevance to Serbia.
