29/01/2014 | Political Opinion transmitted on january 29th, 2014
The European Affairs Committee of the French Senate adopted on january 21st, 2014 a political opinion on delegated acts, in connection with this text. As a complement to this political opinion, the Committee also adopted a report. Both documents were transmitted to the European Commission on january 29th, 2014.

The European Affairs Committee of the French Senate’s analysis underlines the excessive reliance on delegated acts, often too vague delegations of authority and an abuse in the process when the EC does not take into account the EU legislator's delegations.

The European Affairs Committee of the French Senate considers, on the one hand, that the "delegated acts" principle is necessary for the smooth running of the EU institutions, but, on the other hand, calls on the EU legislator and the Commission to better control and regulate the process
