European Commission | Briefing - 'Fit for 55' package: Revision of the Effort-Sharing Regulation
Full original title: Briefing - 'Fit for 55' package: Revision of the Effort-Sharing Regulation - PE 699.465 - Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development - Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety - Committee on Industry, Research and Energy - Committee on Transport and Tourism.
The IA analyses the nature and scale of the problem, which triggers the revision of the Effort Sharing Regulation. While subsidiarity is suffiicently addressed, the proportionality aspects of the revision are not addressed by the IA. One general and three specific objectives, clearly deriving from the problem, were set up. Three policy options were identified and analysed in detail. The options (and their sub-options) were compared in terms of their potential to achieve the specific objectives, in particular, regarding their scope, environmental integrity, distribution of efforts (in terms of fairness and cost-efficiency) and flexibility offered. The options have been analysed mostly for their environmental, economic and administrative impacts. Stakeholder views are abundently used and transparently referenced throughout the analysis of impact. The IA is based on a solid knowledge base combining the use of qualitative and quantitiave methods.
