Key points

The EESC:

  • considers that the impact assessments for any legislative proposals must be included and take due account of the importance of the economic, social and environmental dimensions, including for SMEs;
  • calls on the Parliament, the Council and the European Commission to agree on a common methodology for studies and impact assessments which could also serve as guide for the Committee;
  • reiterates its concern about the findings on the shortcomings of social and environmental impact assessments and the follow-up to consultations and calls on the Commission to be more transparent and to give fully documented reasons why a particular measure or proposal is or is not to be submitted for impact assessment and/or an ex-post analysis
