1 Workshop Practical Tools for Implementation of EU Policies at the National Level Module 1: Implementation Obligations and the Law Approximation Process Module 2: Outcome, Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) and Evaluation Luxembourg, September 2015 European Institute of Public Administration European Centre for Judges and Lawyers Seminar venue European Centre for Judges and Lawyers EIPA Luxembourg Building of the Chambre des Métiers 4 th Floor Master Room (411) 2 Circuit de la Foire Internationale 1347 Luxembourg Introduction Target group Mid-level managers, officials and experts from ministries, central and regional agencies and authorities responsible for or involved in drafting, coordinating and/or implementing European Union legislation at the national level. Description This workshop deals in a very practical way with specific aspects concerning political, legal, economical, process and managerial questions related to implementation of EU policies and law at the level of the Member States. It also illustrates the need for timely and appropriate implementation, as well as possible consequences of non- or incorrect implementation. To allow participants the highest possible degree of attending training tailor-made to their interests and needs, the programme is divided into two separate two-day modules, each of which can be attended separately, or which can be attended together. The first module focuses on the implementation obligations, the law approximation process, national coordination of the law approximation efforts, notification to the Commission and the consequences of non-, incomplete or late implementation. The second module will be dedicated to Regulatory Impact Assessment and evaluation of implemented legislation. Learning methodology This highly interactive workshop is based on a combination of presentations, problem-solving learning sessions, exchanges of experience, case studies and simulations. Aims and objectives The overall aim of the workshop is to provide the participants with a better understanding of national and the Commission s needs with respect to the implementation of European Union legislation. More specifically, the objectives of the workshop are: to transfer methodology and the practical tools necessary to ensure compliance with EU membership obligations; to provide guidance on balancing domestic and supranational political interests on the one hand, and constitutional and legal requirements on the other; to enable participants to identify and measure the impact of transposition of EU legislation at the national level (Regulatory Impact Assessment); to provide guidance on how to measure and evaluate the outcome of implemented EU legislation; to learn by doing and exchange experiences with colleagues from other countries. Note: Due to the highly interactive nature of the programme, the number of participants is limited to 20.
