Smarting up EU risk regulation: The ERF Action Plan

Those of us interested in EU risk regulation may be interested in the Action Plan that the European Risk Forum (ERF) issued a couple of months ago. The ERF Action Plan builds on and integrates the Commission Smart Regulation agenda, covering issues such as the EU Law on Administrative Procedures; public consultation, impact assessment and regulatory benefits; the role of the Commission’s Chief Scientific Advisor; and the application of the precautionary principle. 

The ERF is a think-tank committed to improving risk management decisions at the EU level. Using a “horizontal”, cross-sectoral approach and drawing from OECD / WTO principles as well as direct private sector experiences, the Forum promotes the extensive use of evidence (especially science); the rigorous definition of policy objectives; clear and comprehensive descriptions and assessments of problems and their underlying causes; a realistic understanding of the costs and benefits of policy options; and timely and extensive consultation.
