Better Regulation Practices across the European Union 2022
Laws and regulations affect the daily lives of businesses and citizens. It is important
that they are designed in a way that takes account of their social, environmental
and business impacts and ensures they remain relevant in today’s fast-changing context.
The second edition of the Better Regulation Practices across the European Union report
analyses recent developments and current practices for improving the quality of laws
and regulations across all 27 EU Member States and the European Union. Using the OECD
Indicators of Regulatory Policy and Governance, the report systematically assesses
the use of evidence-based tools and stakeholder participation in the design and review
of both domestic and EU laws and regulations, and provides a detailed assessment of
the application of the proportionality principle. The report presents good regulatory
practices and highlights areas that should receive further attention and investment.
