Communication presented on 15 April 2019 by the European Commission taking stock of the measures introduced under the Juncker Commission to deliver better results for EU citizens and businesses through more open, transparent and evidence-based policy-making.

Further information:

Better regulation underpins the European Commission's work to deliver on President Juncker's 10 political priorities, ensuring that the Commission acts only where the EU brings added value, and does so in the most effective and least burdensome way possible.

In 2015, the Commission adopted its Better Regulation Agenda, transforming its internal working methods and planning processes. It incorporates better regulation into all stages of the planning and programming cycle and delivers streamlined annual work programmes. Better regulation is about professionalising every aspect of policy-making and keeping it fit for today's world.

The results of the stocktaking exercise are clear: better regulation has improved the way EU policy is made. There is a widespread demand for better regulation to continue to be an integral part of the Commission's way of working while being further improved.
