Scrutiny of recent Inception Impact Assessments:
adaptation to climate change, organic pollutants in waste, pesticides

June 24th 2020

The Impact Assessment Institute has scrutinised three European Commission Inception Impact Assessments (IIAs), published in May 2020, on the European Green Deal strategy for adaptation to climate change, concentration limit values of persistent organic pollutants in waste and revision of the sustainable use of pesticides Directive.


Our analysis according to Better Regulation principles (below) has identified good practice alongside a number of concerns to be addressed in the upcoming Impact Assessment drafting.

Stakeholders are invited to provide their own insights into these IIAs and to reach out to the Institute’s Analytics division to discuss further scrutiny of evidence on these or other dossiers.
