On 6th June the EJSF held a first meeting of corporates interested in a potential new Bridging Legal & Policy’ (BLP) initiative. The aim of this initiative is to create a platform where corporates (legal & policy colleagues) can focus on the legal aspects of new EU polices and draft laws so as to avoid and minimize problems at the implementation and enforcement stages.

Participants at the June meeting agreed that topics to be addressed could cover areas such as e-commerce, P2B issues, consistency in EU regulation, cybersecurity, data protection, sustainability issues, and business and human rights among others. BLP activities would include member meetings to exchange best practices and test ideas, and focused thematic workshops with EU policymakers.

A second BLP stakeholder meeting for corporates is planned for early October in Brussels.
