Scrutiny of recent Inception Impact Assessments:
packaging waste, fluorinated greenhouse gases, Trans-European Energy infrastructure, EU Green Bond Standard


August 3rd 2020

The Impact Assessment Institute has scrutinised four European Commission Inception Impact Assessments (IIAs), published between May and June 2020, on:

  • Review of requirements for packaging and other measures to prevent packaging waste

  • Review of rules on fluorinated greenhouse gases

  • Revision of the Trans-European Energy Infrastructure's guidelines

  • Establishment of an EU Green Bond Standard

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. In certain cases, the combination of Evaluation Roadmap and Inception Impact Assessment creates challenges.

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.
