Since the 2013 Opinion on "Assessing territorial impacts", the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) has been using Territorial Impact Assessment (TIA) to analyse the potential asymmetric territorial impacts of EU policy and legislative proposals.
The Renewed Territorial Impact Assessment Strategy of 2023 focusses on two objectives:
· To provide CoR rapporteurs with relevant analysis and information that can be used to improve the territorial perspective of CoR opinions;
· To promote TIA among the European institutions as an important element of Better Regulation.
The CoR's TIA activities are managed by the COTER secretariat in close cooperation with other commissions' secretariats.
