Territorial Impact Assessment 

Territorial Impact Assessments (TIAs) aim to provide the Committee of the Regions' (CoR) rapporteurs with an analysis of the potential territorial impact of EU legislative proposals.

Following the 2013 Opinion on "A ssessing territorial impacts" the Committee intends to promote TIAs as a tool for better EU policymaking in order to take into account the potential territorial impacts of policy and legislative proposals. This goal was further reinforced with the Renewed Territorial Impact Assessment Strategy of 2015.

The CoR's TIA activities are managed by the COTER secretariat in close cooperation with other commissions' secretariats.​​
