Adopted References: INT/656 EESC-2013-248 Own-initiative Rapporteur: Mr Jorge Pegado Liz (Various interests - GR III / Portugal) Plenary Session: 492 - 18 Sep 2013 - 19 Sep 2013 (Summary Plenary Session)
Better regulation: implementing acts and delegated acts (information report)

Better regulation: implementing acts and delegated acts

Key points

  • The aim of the information report is to highlight the realities of the delegated legislative procedure introduced by the Lisbon Treaty.
  • The delegation procedure must allow the legislator to focus on the essential. This is welcome, as long as the powers delegated to the Commission are properly managed and implemented in a transparent fashion.     
  • After analysis, there are still doubts as to the simplicity of the procedure, how the European public really perceives what is at stake here, the "correct" usage of this procedure and the effectiveness of the control mechanisms.
  • As a consequence, it is proposed to draw up an own-initiative opinion where the EESC can express its position on this issue, based on the observations and conclusions arrived at in this report, with a view to a possible proposal for improving the EU's legislative procedure.
