European Maritime and Fisheries Fund 2021-2027

21-01-2019

The 2021-2027 European Maritime and Fisheries Fund is the major financial tool supporting the EU common fisheries policy (CFP). The new EMFF is focused “on evolution rather than radical changes” - and is supposed to be simpler and more flexible for the stakeholders involved. The notes on quality, research and analysis of the impact assessment concluded that the range of options, the scope and analysis of impacts, and the stakeholder consultation seem to be not always in line with the Better Regulation ...

Erasmus 2021-2027

15-11-2018

The focus of the new Erasmus programme 2021-2027 is on inclusiveness and on better reach of young people with fewer opportunities. The priorities and action steps of the new programme are described in the impact assessment in detail, however, no description is given on the actual operation of these actions in practice.

Revision of the Explosives Precursors Regulation

10-07-2018

Explosives precursors can be found in various chemical products used by consumers, general professional users, and industrial users, for example, in detergents, fertilisers, special fuels, lubricants and greases, water treatment chemicals. They can be used by terrorists to produce home-made explosives (HME). In April 2018 the European Commission put forward a proposal for a new regulation, accompanied by an impact assessment (IA) and an evaluation, which have been performed at the same time. The ...

Explosives precursors can be found in various chemical products used by consumers, general professional users, and industrial users, for example, in detergents, fertilisers, special fuels, lubricants and greases, water treatment chemicals. They can be used by terrorists to produce home-made explosives (HME). In April 2018 the European Commission put forward a proposal for a new regulation, accompanied by an impact assessment (IA) and an evaluation, which have been performed at the same time. The IA has attempted to provide a rather detailed, albeit mainly qualitative, analysis of the various types of impacts, disregarding some limitations to obtain data, such as a risk of exposing vulnerabilities in Member States and of jeopardising ongoing investigations and prosecutions. The IA notes that many SMEs are not part of the EU level industry associations, which have been consulted while drafting the ex-post evaluation. A question arises if the SMEs have been targeted at the stakeholder consultation in any other way, which appears not to be the case. The public consultation took less than 12 weeks, which is not in line with the Better Regulation Guidelines.

Multi-annual plan for western Mediterranean demersal fisheries

13-06-2018

The development of a multiannual plan as the preferred policy choice seems rather pre-determined, as such plans are a priority measure for the sustainable management of fish stocks under the current CFP. The description of the impacts of the options provides certain quantitative data. However, not enough details are given in the impact assessment on the financial impacts on the fishermen and the fleets, including broken-down information per country, or on ancillary jobs, such as servicing the vessels ...

The development of a multiannual plan as the preferred policy choice seems rather pre-determined, as such plans are a priority measure for the sustainable management of fish stocks under the current CFP. The description of the impacts of the options provides certain quantitative data. However, not enough details are given in the impact assessment on the financial impacts on the fishermen and the fleets, including broken-down information per country, or on ancillary jobs, such as servicing the vessels or sale of fish. The Regulatory Scrutiny Board also criticises the impact assessment for the lack of a dedicated territorial impact assessment. A more detailed and thorough analysis of the impacts on SMEs would have benefited the analysis, as the majority of the fishing sector in the fishing areas covered by this proposal is SMEs.

Import of cultural goods

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's impact assessment (IA) accompanying the above proposal, adopted on 13 July 2017 and now under discussion in Parliament and Council. The proposal aims to prevent the import and storage in the EU of cultural goods illicitly exported from a third country, in order to reduce trafficking in cultural goods, combat terrorism financing and protect cultural heritage, especially archaeological objects in source countries affected by armed conflict (explanatory memorandum of the proposal, p. 3). The market for antiques, ancient art and collectibles of older age constitutes 24 % of the global legal art and antiques market. The European market share accounts for 35 % of this global market, with the UK in the lead with 24 % (due to its large auction houses), followed by Switzerland (6 %), France (5 %), Germany (3 %), and Austria, Spain and the Netherlands (each around 0.5% respectively). Based on Eurostat figures, the estimated annual value of imports of classical antiquities and ancient art declared to EU customs may be around €3.7 billion per year (IA, p. 10). The IA explains that the current Common Nomenclature tariff heading (9705) used for import of antiquities and ancient art objects is rather broad, including also a variety of other goods of interest to collectors, making it difficult to estimate the total EU imports of cultural goods (IA, p. 10). Regarding the illicit trade of cultural goods, there are numerous underlying factors, which cannot be changed by this initiative, according to the IA (p. 11). These include, for example, poverty and military conflicts prevalent in many regions rich in cultural heritage sites, technological progress in various digging tools (such as metal-detectors, power drills, explosives), the market demand for such objects, mostly concentrated in Europe and North America, as well as cross-border transaction and e-commerce (IA, pp. 11-12). Estimates show that 80-90 % of global antiquities sales are of goods with illicit origin, and these sales are worth US$3 to 6 billion annually (IA, p. 12). The illicit sales of cultural goods often stem from terrorist activities and serve as a means to finance terrorism (IA, p. 14). For example, the Islamist profit from illicit trade in antiquities and archaeological treasures is estimated at US$150-200 million (IA, p. 15).

Analyse d’impact (SWD(2016)0168, SWD(2016)0169 (résumé)) portant sur une proposition de la Commission relative à une directive du Parlement européen et du Conseil modifiant la directive 2010/13/UE visant à la coordination de certaines dispositions législatives, réglementaires et administratives des États membres relatives à la fourniture de services de médias audiovisuels, compte tenu de l’évolution des réalités du marché (COM(2016)0287)

Mesures techniques de pêche

06-06-2016

L’utilisation d’informations diversifiées et apparemment solides obtenues dans le cadre d'études externes, de réunions et de consultations, ainsi que la présentation convaincante des avis des parties prenantes et des résultats de la consultation publique tout au long du rapport sont les principales forces de l’analyse d'impact.

L’utilisation d’informations diversifiées et apparemment solides obtenues dans le cadre d'études externes, de réunions et de consultations, ainsi que la présentation convaincante des avis des parties prenantes et des résultats de la consultation publique tout au long du rapport sont les principales forces de l’analyse d'impact. L’analyse d'impact semble être bien illustrée par des exemples; toutefois, ces derniers ne permettent pas toujours de mieux comprendre les problèmes actuels du fait de leur présentation parfois incohérente et plutôt confuse. L’analyse des différentes incidences sur les parties prenantes et les régions de pêche est plutôt faible. En particulier, l’analyse des incidences sur les PME est brève, qualitative et très générale et aurait peut-être mérité une approche plus approfondie. La raison pour laquelle les options 1 et 2.1 ont été retenues pour une analyse plus approfondie n’est pas claire, étant donné que l’analyse d'impact affirme qu’elles contribueraient peu à résoudre les problèmes d’application des mesures techniques. Une analyse plus approfondie est donnée pour l’option 2, l’option privilégiée, par rapport aux autres options, ce qui pourrait suggérer que l’apparent choix d’options n’est pas aussi large qu’il y paraît. Enfin, l’analyse d'impact aurait pu donner un meilleur aperçu de la manière dont les règlements relatifs aux mesures techniques qui subsistent et les actes de la Commission seraient affectés dans la pratique suite à la proposition.

Stratégie de l'aviation — Systèmes d'aéronefs télépilotés (RPAS)

14-04-2016

Cependant, l'éventail des options étudiées est plutôt limité et les descriptions qui en sont faites sont si générales qu'il est très difficile de les évaluer et de les comparer entre elles. Ainsi, l'analyse ne fournit aucune explication au sujet des critères de classification des risques liés aux drones ni sur la question de la procédure et des autorités de délivrance des certificats. Elle répète à longueur de texte que certaines questions, comme la classification des drones à risques ou les facteurs ...

Cependant, l'éventail des options étudiées est plutôt limité et les descriptions qui en sont faites sont si générales qu'il est très difficile de les évaluer et de les comparer entre elles. Ainsi, l'analyse ne fournit aucune explication au sujet des critères de classification des risques liés aux drones ni sur la question de la procédure et des autorités de délivrance des certificats. Elle répète à longueur de texte que certaines questions, comme la classification des drones à risques ou les facteurs de définition d'une approche centrée sur les opérations pour réglementer les drones, seront bordées dans les prochaines analyses d'impact qui accompagneront les futurs actes délégués. Il est regrettable que l'analyse ne comporte pas d'examen plus approfondi du contenu probable des mesures à adopter par des actes délégués ou du recours à de tels actes. Toutefois, la classification des risques (définition des opérations présentant des risques élevés ou des risques faibles) aurait pu être exposée plus en détail, étant donné que tous les aspects des règles en matière de drones ne seront pas établis uniquement en fonction des progrès technologiques. Un exposé mieux illustré et plus fouillé du problème ainsi que des descriptions plus détaillées des options stratégiques auraient contribué à une meilleure compréhension des incidences de la nouvelle proposition, tout particulièrement pour les lecteurs qui ne connaissent pas nécessairement bien les règles en vigueur en matière de sûreté dans l'aviation civile.

Aviation strategy — European Union Aviation Safety Agency: Initial Appraisal of a European Commission Impact Assessment

25-02-2016

The main strengths of the IA are its apparently solid information base, including the two supporting studies, as well as good presentation of stakeholder views and the results of the public consultation throughout. It is, however, unfortunate that the external supporting studies do not appear to be publicly available. The IA would have benefitted from a clearer and more complete presentation of the background information and problem definition, as well as more direct reference to the evidence identified ...

The main strengths of the IA are its apparently solid information base, including the two supporting studies, as well as good presentation of stakeholder views and the results of the public consultation throughout. It is, however, unfortunate that the external supporting studies do not appear to be publicly available. The IA would have benefitted from a clearer and more complete presentation of the background information and problem definition, as well as more direct reference to the evidence identified. There appears to be a certain bias towards the preferred options, as far as the way in which options are presented is concerned; the question remains as to whether additional options could have been considered in order to provide a broader choice of genuine alternatives. There are also some technical presentation issues, such as rather inconsistent numbering of the items in some sections. It is striking that no reference whatsoever appears to be made to the existence of a second, separate IA (on drones) which accompanies the same proposal and thus is presumably intended to complete the overall analysis.
