European Consumer Day 2016

Better regulation for consumers? Conference - Brussels, Belgium

The 18th edition of the European Consumer Day was held in Brussels on 10 March 2016.

Our guests, specially selected to debate a wide spectrum of ideas, discussed the Better Regulation initiative, what should be taken into account by the Commission and other institutions in implementing this new strategy and how to make sure that consumers do not lose out. Among the questions we were asking: Why is it a Commission priority to regulate better and what does it mean in practice? Do the benefits outweigh the burden? What is the role of public consultation? What needs improving and what is best left alone?
