Orgalime comments on Commission Communications of 5 June 2002

In Orgalime's view quality regulation can only be achieved through a close cooperation between regulators and affected stakeholders on any new area of policy or regulation. Regulators must define general policy objectives before proceeding to well structured and transparent consultations, proper impact assessments and a real dialogue with relevant stakeholders.

While Orgalime therefore welcomes the Commission's four Communications of 5 June 2002, it wishes to highlight in the enclosed Resolution and detailed position paper, what we believe are crucial factors pinpointed in the Communications, if the goal of achieving quality regulation is to be reached.
