The Commission's 'better regulation' system is one of the most advanced regulatory approaches in the world. It systematically assesses the economic, social and environmental impacts of policy action and ensures a consistently high quality of proposed legislation.  On 29 April 2021, the Commission adopted a Communication on Better Regulation, proposing several improvements to the EU law-making process, in order to ensure that EU policies support the recovery and resilience of the EU and its twin transition in the best possible way. To foster Europe's recovery, it is more important than ever to legislate as efficiently as possible, while making EU laws better adapted to tomorrow's needs.
