NNR i Europaparlamentet

Den 6 oktober anordnar Sällskapet Politik och Näringsliv (SPN) ett seminarium i Bryssel med titeln ”Will Smart Regulation Become Competetive Regulation?”

Will Smart Regulation become competitive regulation?

The Swedish Society for Business and Politics, SPN, invites you to a lunch seminar in the European Parliament on the 6 October 2010. The seminar on the EUs new Smart Regulation agenda will be held between 12.30 and 14.00 in meeting room A3H1.  Before the seminar a lighter lunch will be served at 12.00.

As a part of the new EU 2020 strategy, the European Commission is about to present its priorities for its new Smart Regulation agenda. A follow up to the Better Regulation agenda, it is expected to cover actions to simply existing legislation and continue to reduce the administrative burdens for business. But it will also develop a method for ex-post evaluation and enhance impact assessments as a quality tool.

The questions are many.

What role will be given to the European Parliament? How does the European Parliament see its own role? What does business expect of the Parliament? How should the ex-post evaluation be devised? How should the agenda become one for smart and competitive regulation?

Come and listen to interesting presentations and to participate in the debate on a highly topical issue.


  • Henning Klaus, Member of the Cabinet of Presedent Barroso (tbc)
  • Bernhard Rapkay, MEP, Coordinator for S&D in the JURI Committee (tbc)
  • Jens Hedström, President of the Board of Swedish Industry and Commerce for Better Regulation

The seminar will be led by MEP Göran Färm, Chairman of SPN Brussels and member of the Committee on Budgets.

Warmly welcome!
