This conference took place on February 23rd. The website will be updated in the last week of March 2016.


Dear Sir/Madam,

Welcome at the website of the international conference on ‘Enforcement in a Europe without Borders’ organized by the Netherlands Inspection Council. This conference will take place Tuesday 23 February 2016 in Amsterdam, during the EU Presidency of The Netherlands.

There is a growing sense of urgency to have more EU wide cooperation between national enforcement agencies. Currently citizens, products and services freely cross borders and legislation is increasingly harmonized within Europe. Enforcement however is less harmonized. During this conference we want to exchange experiences and create a platform to start this dialogue. The central question during this conference is: how can international cooperation between inspectorates effectively contribute to the new challenges they are facing?

I look forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam in February.

Kind regards,

Jan van den Bos
Chairman of the Netherlands Inspection Council
