Open letter in response to the Commission proposal for an Inter-Institutional Agreement
On June 3, the members of the Better Regulation Watchdog sent a joint open letter to the European Parliament highlighting five critical issues with the Commission’s draft Inter-institutional agreement.
The five issues are:
The Better Regulation initiative should not threaten the democratic powers of the European Parliament and the Council
The Commission should not propose outright blanket exemptions of EU legislation
Impact assessments should be used to improve, not threaten legitimate regulation
Transparency should not lead to even more corporate influence on law-making
Better Regulation should not lead to regulatory convergence to the bottom
