Impact Assessment Institute training seminar 28th & 29th July 2016


"How to work with Impact Assessments and consultation to shape EU laws"


One year on from the publication of the European Commission's Better Regulation agenda, what has changed, what still needs to be improved and how can stakeholders most effectively navigate the EU law-making process?  The Impact Assessment Institute's training seminar provides answers to these questions and more, giving practical coaching on how to influence EU legislation and the all-important Impact Assessments. 



Why is Impact Assessment important?


  • Impact Assessment (IA) is the central pillar of the European Commission's Better Regulation Agenda pushed by VP Timmermans.


  • Every important Commission legislative proposal is supported by an IA.


  • IAs take about 18 months to compile from start to finish. That is about as long as the Ordinary Legislative Procedure (co-decision) for adopting legislation lasts.


  • During the IA process, the Commission makes numerous decisions that shape its proposals.



The IAI’s training on ‘How to work with EU Impact Assessment’ provides you with the insight you need to influence the Commission’s Impact Assessments effectively. The training covers the following topics:


  1. Impact Assessment as part of EU Better Regulation

  2. The IA framework and principles

  3. The IA process, including consultation

  4. Actors within the Commission

  5. Pitfalls and challenges for Commission officials

  6. Dos and don’ts for influencing the Commission’s IA work



The training is highly relevant for professionals working (or intending to work) in EU Affairs. It consists of presentations, work sessions and group discussion that focus on strengthening your involvement in Impact Assessment.
