Scrutiny of recent Inception Impact Assessments:
waste shipments, sustainable alternative fuels
for aviation and maritime sector

May 14th 2020


The Impact Assessment Institute has scrutinised the European Commission Inception Impact Assessments, published in March 2020, on the revision of EU rules on waste shipments and on sustainable fuels for aviation ("ReFuelEU Aviation") and maritime sector ("FuelEU Maritime").

Our analysis according to Better Regulation principles (below) has identified good practice alongside some 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.
