The fundamental purpose of this thesis is to assess critically how legislation deriving from the European Union is, and should be, reviewed after it has been brought into force. The inspiration for this paper derives from two factors, first, the recent explosion in interest in ‘better regulation’ in Europe and second, the growing interest in post-legislative scrutiny of domestic legislation in the UK. This paper is written from the British perspective and this is reflected in the focus of the research which is on two levels, covering the analysis of UK domestic scrutiny of European legislation and the analysis of scrutiny processes undertaken at EU level, namely by the European Commission and the European Parliament.
