New Comitology and Delegated Acts

This seminar provides a privileged insight into the system of delegated and implementing acts from a practical perspective of a day-to-day management of EU policies, and a forum to discuss current issues and latest developments.

Target groupThis two-day seminar is designed for civil servants from EU Member States, candidate countries and the EU institutions, as well as other stakeholders requiring a detailed understanding of the practical challenges posed by delegated and implementing acts as well as of the latest developments in this field.DescriptionThe seminar starts by positioning delegated and implementing acts within the EU policy cycle, identifying the basic differences between the two types of acts and doing away with a number of myths that have arisen in the years since the Lisbon Treaty separated delegated acts from the ‘old’ comitology. A number of cases are used to illustrate different types of acts.This is followed by a review of procedures and actors. The respective systems of control for both types of acts, including the pre-Lisbon left-over measures adopted by the regulatory procedure with scrutiny, are analysed in detail. A workshop based on real cases will allow participants to reflect on the nature of negotiation processes, dynamics and issues in the field of delegated and implementing acts.The seminar concludes with a discussion with practitioners from the EU institutions about current challenges and latest developments. Questions of consultation, delineation and recent Court judgements will be addressed in the light of the new Interinstitutional Agreement on Better Regulation and the related revision of the Common Understanding on Delegated Acts.Learning methodologyThe seminar is based on a range of presentations and interactive group work, to enable participants to put their knowledge into practice. The seminar integrates case studies and current examples to enable participants to see delegated and implementing acts at work.ObjectivesAt the end of the seminar, participants will have a good knowledge of the nature and practice of delegated and implementing acts, as well as an insight into both the practical challenges posed and the institutional issues at stake. Participants will thus be well equipped in the future to both participate in processes concerning delegated and implementing acts in Brussels, and assist in managing these acts at home.
