Frameworks for IA

This section introduces different procedural approaches to doing IA. These IA frameworks represent broad approaches that help structure the IA process. They may be bound to a specific jurisdiction, institution (such as the IA approach of the OECD), level (e.g. the IA approach of the EU), or policy field.

IA Frameworks define the priorities and the scope of an IA, and they typically break down the assessment into a set of procedural steps. In some cases, they may provide guidance or examples for identifying relevant impact areas and for selecting appropriate analytical methods or indicators.
