21. A legal act that provides the basis for a co-regulation mechanism will indicate the possible extent of co-regulation in the area concerned. The competent legislative authority defines in this act the measures to be taken to monitor their application if one or more parties do not comply with the rules of dissemination or if the agreement is not concluded. These measures may provide, for example, the Commission`s regular information on the monitoring of the application or a review clause under which the Commission will report at the end of a given period and propose, if necessary, an amendment to the legislative act or any other appropriate legislation. 20. As part of the basic act, the parties involved in this act may enter into voluntary agreements setting out practical arrangements. The Better Legislation Programme also contains a number of accompanying documents that are directly related to the elements examined by the Council. These documents contain guidelines for better legislation and documents related to the REFIT program. It is not easy to understand how a legislative proposal is drawn up at EU level and to follow its path through all the institutions up to its moment in national legislation.

The process is often complicated and can be long. At the same time, it is essential to ensure the quality of regulation and to ensure that it meets the needs of society and businesses. That is why the European institutions are constantly thinking about how to improve EU legislation. They also aim to improve cooperation between the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union in order to better serve EU citizens. The global „Better Legislation“ programme proposed by the Juncker Commission consists of two main elements. The proposed agreement has many interesting features and is expected to improve the EU legislative process; However, the implementation of this agreement will be difficult and the question of whether it will have any real effect remains open for the time being. Draft agreements are forwarded by the Commission to the legislative authority. In accordance with its responsibility, the Commission will consider whether or not these draft treaties are in line with EU law (and in particular with the basic legislation).
