Commision endorses better law making for innovation-driven investment

The Commission has published a staff working document on "Better regulations for innovation-driven investment at EU level" which aims to enhance innovation-based opportunities for sustainable growth, jobs and competitiveness.

Innovation is a necessary condition for sustainable growth for Europe, and therefore the Commission aims to evaluate the impact of existing or proposed EU regulation on innovation to maximise the way it can support innovation. The Better Regulation procedures and its rolling REFIT programme provide a framework for this work. The Commission services will further develop the preliminary analysis already undertaken, working together with the Dutch Presidency of the Council in the first half of 2016 to collect further suggestions on the relationship between innovation and regulation, indications of regulatory barriers to innovation, and suggestions for simpler and more efficient regulation.
