Developing personal and household services in the EU - A focus on housework activities  (19/09/2013)

Catalog N. : KE-02-13-200-EN-N

This report looks at the impact that public policy has had on personal and household services (PHS) around the EU. Specifically, it considers those tools that aim at encouraging formal employment and discourage undeclared work. For this analysis care services are excluded, whilst the public policy tools analysed can be grouped in four categories: reducing the price, simplification of procedures through vouchers, new regulation on employment and fostering the emergence of a supply side. By analysing national data, the impact in terms of job creation, the black market share and the cost efficiency and redistributive impact of policies is considered. This publication is available in electronic format in English.

Design and Commissioning of Counterfactual Impact Evaluations - A Practical Guidance for ESF Managing Authorities  (30/08/2013)

Catalog N. : KE-30-13-216-EN-N

Evaluations of programmes and interventions financed through the European Social Fund (ESF) have proven challenging and have in many cases not allowed policy-makers to draw evidence-based conclusions regarding their effectiveness and efficiency. In order to strengthen future evaluations, the European Commission is encouraging Member States to increase efforts to develop credible evidence of ESF effects beyond what would have been achieved in the absence of ESF support. Such evidence requires counterfactual impact evaluations (CIEs) – i.e. comparison of results to estimates of what would have occurred otherwise. This guidance provides practical advice on some of the key questions that need to be considered when designing, commissioning and conducting CIEs. It is intended for ESF Managing Authorities (MA) and other bodies responsible for the implementation of ESF-funded programmes and interventions. The focus is on practicalities, though through necessity some technical issues are discussed. This publication is available in electronic format in English. French and German versions will be available in October 2013.

Chemical labels are changing – How will this affect you ?  (19/08/2013)

Catalog N. : KE-30-13-227-EN-C

Over the next few years, the EU chemical Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP) is changing how chemical products are classified to identify hazards. This will result in changes to the information which is communicated to users of chemicals on labels and in safety data sheets (SDSs). People working with chemicals must adapt to these changes, and this document will act as practical guidance. Specifically, it will explain how these changes will affect your responsibilities under various EU worker protection directives (chemical agents directive, carcinogens and mutagens directive, safety signs directive, pregnant workers directive and young people at work directive).
