A very effective way to make a regulatory reform is through the institutionalisation of the use of tools that allow policymakers to take decisions based on evidence clearly identifying the affinity between public action and society’s expectations. The Brazilian government has acted firmly in the promotion of actions aimed at improving the quality of regulation.
Impact assessment is an important tool, as it helps to quantify the costs and benefits of measures that may affect a group or groups in society, whether they are consumers or producers of regulated goods and services.
As a result, this Dialogue aims to hold a workshop in which the European Union and Brazil can discuss experiences on: impact assessment in the EU’s decision-making process; the design of impact assessment adopted by the EU; the role played by European institutions and; how to improve the quality of impact assessments. It also aims to hire expert advice to conduct a comparative study on the experiences of impact assessment and the drafting of laws in member countries of the European Community and the European Commission. It will also support visits of Brazilian civil servants to the institutions responsible for carrying out impact assessment in European Union countries.
