Amendments to regulations on European Works Councils came into force on 5 June 2011, giving effect to the recast EU Directive. The changes aim to improve the effectiveness of information and consultation requirements. The amendments will apply to all EWCs, or information and consultation procedures, set up on or after 5 June 2011, and to those established after 15 December 1999 under agreements which were not revised between 5 June 2009 and 5 June 2011.
