The background for this booklet is the adoption of the Communication on Impact Assessment, in which the European Commission committed itself to perform an Impact Assessment of all major policy proposals (COM(2002)276final). This Communication is one of a series of initiatives on "Better Regulation".
Its aim is to improve the quality and coherence of the policy development process. It will contribute to an effective and efficient regulatory environment and to a more coherent implementation of the European Strategy for Sustainable Development. This Communication explains how the process of Impact Assessment will be implemented in the Commission, gradually from 2003, for all major policy initiatives.
