Making “better regulation” work better

The German food sector's expectation of the EU Institutions from 2019 to 2024
The German food sector supports the continuation of the European Better Regulation initiative, which includes better impact assessment and quality control in the creation of new or amended legislation as well as comprehensive stakeholder consultation.

Only by means of an early dialogue with all interested and concerned parties, the so-called “stakeholders”, can a careful and realistic inventory of all facts reveal a comprehensive picture of the possible regulatory consequences. Better legislation should therefore be the basis for all legal regulations at European level and thus also a model for German politics. In this way, the constitutional rights of all are respected at the same time and the laws have the necessary basis of legitimacy.

Example: integrating citizens’ initiatives into the better regulation approach


The new European Citizens’ initiative tool needs to be properly integrated into the Better Regulation Programme. Today it is no problem to collect more than a million signatures. Therefore, the EU would be ill advised to legislate only based on this tool. It is therefore important to position the will of the citizens formulated through these citizens' initiatives in the concept of better regulation, as required, to achieve an adequate balance between all the interests and concerns involved.
