Covering all European Union policy areas, work in this area comprises regulatory impact assessment in all its forms, e.g. ex-ante impact assessments of proposed new regulation, review of the advantages and disadvantages of codification initiatives. A specific focus is on ‘European Added Value Assessments’ and ‘Cost of Non-Europe Reports’, i.e. research on the raison d’être of regulatory action at the level of the European Union.
