Show Summary Details


This chapter turns to the better regulation policy of the EU. The main thrust is to look at and assess the tools, current quality assurance practice in the Commission and other EU institutions, projects under way and pilot projects on measurement undertaken by academics and stakeholders. The discussion shows how quality assurance processes, mechanisms and measurements provide either conceptual foundations or information that can be used in the design of a system of indicators. Another aim is to provide a clear picture of the EU institutions' own standards of regulatory quality, exploring how EU institutions approach the issue of quality.
