This survey is an opportunity for you to tell the Commission what it can do to make the job of local authorities easier. This is also the occasion to let the Commission know the best way to improve its communication.

More about the survey

The survey is anonymous and filling it in will take a maximum of 10 minutes to complete.

The European Commission (Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs) has launched a study on how to inform and best communicate with regional and local public authorities about the application of EU law. The study will be undertaken by PwC EU services and is expected to be completed by October 2019.

The purpose of the assignment is to assess whether regional and local public administration practitioners need more information about EU law and how to apply it, and if so, to receive indications as to what kind of information they need, and by which level (EU/Member State/other). The overall purpose of the study is to advise the European Commission about the most effective ways of communicating information about EU law, policies and tools to local or regional public authorities applying EU law.

Through an online survey, the consultants will ask local and regional public authorities about their potential needs in terms of information, their view on the information that is currently available, and identify possible information gaps.
