Hello everyone,

I understand that the European Commission is indeed thinking 
(with their usual "suggestors") about
a European standard regulation that could possibly overrule members 
state regulations.

Will it be the least common multiple or the greatest common denominator 
of national regulations ?
Imho, I doubt all UE countries will agree (or have resources) to 
reinforce controls and enforce higher

Pierre raises an opengov question regarding transparency and civil 
society participation at the EU level
and, of course, I definitely agree with him.
