RIA developments in France

This week the French Prime Minister issued the second of two circulars detailing how some of the impacts should be handled in the RIA process. These texts are meant to illustrate commitments of the new legislature:
- circular dated 4 September on including the impact for handicapped persons of new regulation. The text asks all ministries to examine how their reform project may impact this category, and provides a template for assessing the impact; it refers to guidance given by the UN convention (ratified by France in 2010) and national legislation for standards of protection;
- circular dated 20 August on taking into consideration gender issues in new regulation. The text asks all ministries to check at an early stage of drafting new regulation that the project does not increase discrimination against women and verify that the draft need not include specific new rules to protect women or prevent further discrimination. Please refer to the original text for the exact wording as this is an approximate summary.
Our thanks to V. Beloulou for pointing to this interesting development.
