RegWatchEurope consists of eight national advisory boards on reducing regulatory burdens. The boards are independent bodies that advise their respective governments on better regulation in general and on the overall regulatory burden of legislation. We play an important role in challenging, monitoring and advising our governments within our respective mandates.

We have joined forces to address Better Regulation issues on EU level. We believe that the EU should continue to reinforce its programmes on smart regulation, developing an ever increasing ambitious framework for ensuring that unnecessary regulatory burdens are avoided, or eliminated from the EU legislative cycle.
