Exploring qualitative and quantitative assessment tools to evaluate the performance of environmental inspectorates across the EU
This project follows on from two previous IMPEL projects (Brainstorming on indicators and Indicators Pilot project). The first project collated a long list of indicators used in Member States and selected a small number for further testing in the second project. The Pilot project then tested these indicators in a small number of volunteer Member States. It concluded that setting general indicators as a stand alone tool with the aim of comparing the performance of inspecting authorities in the EU is not meaningful.
The cluster 1 meeting recommended to broaden the discussion to other assessment tools.
