Ex-Post Impact-Assessments or Evaluations for the European Parliament may relate to the transposition, implementation, application and enforcement of a measure, and/or the impacts, relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, utility and sustainability of measures or policies in practice. They may assess (inter alia) the initial, intermediate or long-term effects or impacts of such measures or policies, including indirect or unintended effects or impacts. Among impacts or effects to be addressed in such work may be (inter alia) those of an economic, social, environmental, territorial, regulatory, and/or international nature, as well as those relating to respect for fundamental rights. Analysis should include, where relevant, the question of whether the effects foreseen in an ex-ante impact assessment, issued by the European Commission on the measure or policy in question before it was adopted, have subsequently been realised once it was put into effect.
Such work may include evaluations of the quality, accuracy and methodological robustness of any kind of ex-post evaluation undertaken by the European Commission or by other EU bodies on measures and policies in practice. Other types of ex-post impact assessments or evaluations may be required, including analysis of the general delivery of policy commitments undertaken by the various EU institutions and bodies, whether in specific cases or over time.
