In this section of the website you will find information on public consultations and initiatives such as roadmaps, impact assessments – open and closed – promoted by the European Commission in the field of health.
Everyone can participate in the consultations: governments, institutions, civil society organisations, non-governmental organisations, market players, representatives of regional and local authorities, academics and experts, any person or stakeholder who wants to ‘have their say’.
Citizens and stakeholders, in particular, can participate in public consultations and in various feedback mechanisms throughout the policy development cycle, and consult related documents and input received. More specifically they can express an opinion:
- when the initial idea is presented
- when the Commission drafts a legislative proposal
- when the Commission presents a legislative proposal
- when the Commission drafts implementing or fine-tuning legislative acts already adopted during the evaluation process
