Adopted in 2002, Directive 2002/65/EC on Distance Marketing of Consumer Financial Services introduced a legal framework for governing the distance marketing of financial services, such as banking, loans, insurance and investment. Back then, when relevant legislation was limited at Member State level, the directive aimed to improve consumer protection rules for financial services sold at a distance and to consolidate the internal market by aligning rules in this area. Since its adoption, however, ...

Census data and demographic statistics are of great relevance for policy-making at the European, national, regional and local levels. At a time where the European Union (EU) is undergoing major demographic changes, driven by an ageing population, low fertility rates and increased migration flows, demand for accurate and timely population statistics rises. In parallel, owing to progress in digitalisation, statistical data collection methods are shifting from traditional population censuses and surveys ...

This initiative focuses specifically on the issue of economic coercion and the EU's possible response, aiming to preserve the EU's open strategic autonomy and policy-making space. The IA clearly defines the problem, its underlying causes, and the objectives to address it. The creation of a new legal instrument to deter and counteract economic coercion is the only type of option retained for analysis. This presumably follows on from the political commitment made in early 2021 (although this is not ...

The IA provides a comprehensive problem analysis, based on the evaluation of the current TEN-T Regulation, a public consultation, and targeted consultations with stakeholders and Member States. It is transparent about the methods and uncertainties (e.g. long-term funding) and limitations. The objectives and the policy options have a clear link to the problem definition. The IA comprehensively analyses the economic, social and environmental impacts of the policy options. However, territorial impacts ...

While the Commission makes the case for advancing the digitalisation of judicial cooperation, and while the IA supporting this initiative received a positive opinion from the RSB, it does nevertheless appear weak on several points. The Commission corroborates its problem definition using several recent sources and data. The Commission conducted several stakeholder consultation activities, for some of which, more specific information would have been useful. Stakeholder views are reflected in the IA ...

The IA supports the proposal for the review of the AIFMD in an overall effective and transparent manner. It is based on solid internal and external expertise, including an array of technical recommendations from the relevant EU and international bodies in charge of monitoring and supervising investment funds. While the intervention logic of the mostly qualitative IA is clear, some aspects could have been substantiated in a more precise way. The highly technical analysis would have been more accessible ...

The IA presents a qualitative and partially quantitative assessment in support of the proposal on working conditions in platform work. The problem definition would have benefited from further clarification, in particular of the target group, as it refers to 'some people', whilst the IA describes more widely problems faced by all of the people working through platforms. The IA openly explains the difficulties relating to the lack of data on platforms, an issue that the authors of the IA tried to address ...

This briefing provides an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's impact assessment (IA) accompanying the proposal for an EU legal framework to halt and reverse EU-driven global deforestation, submitted on 17 November 2021 and referred to the European Parliament's Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI). The proposal was first announced in the 2019 Commission communication on Stepping up EU action to protect and restore the world's forests ...

The IA convincingly illustrates the identified problems, although their scale is not always supported by estimates, or the source of some of the estimates is not provided. When discussing how the situation would evolve without further action, the IA neither discusses the evolution of each problem identified nor any other existing or upcoming EU initiatives that could lead to improvements. The general objectives appear to be consistent with the problems identified, and the specific objectives comply ...

Solvency II review

Briefing 11-04-2022

The IA covers two Commission proposals representing the biggest amendment to date of the Solvency II framework, which came into force in the EU in 2016. Important parts of the framework laid down in delegated and implementing acts will be updated by the Commission at a later stage. This IA builds on a broad consultation of stakeholders, and on extensive advice from the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA). In addition to various reports from EIOPA including a holistic IA ...
