The Commission regularly evaluates EU actions (policies, legislation, trade agreements and financial programmes).
From the standards, the Commission derives guidelines for its staff to use during the evaluation process – including guidance on fitness checks , which assess whether the regulatory framework for a policy sector is fit for purpose.
Evaluation results are fed into the Commission Work Programme and disseminated to the European Parliament, the Council and spending administrative authorities.
Evaluations are planned on a multi-annual basis.
