The IMPEL Review Initiative (IRI)is a project designed to test”a voluntary scheme for reporting and offering advice on inspectorates and inspection procedures”
Finalised IRI reports are available from IMPEL website
The IRI project relates to the Recommendation of the European Parliament and the Council of 4 April 2001 providing for minimum criteria for environmental inspections in the Member States (2001/331/EC)
Against the background of the preparation of theMinimum CriteriaRecommendation for inspections, the eventual need for arrangements to review implementation of the Recommendation was foreseen by IMPEL and thus the Helsinki Plenary meeting of IMPEL in December 1999 requested proposals to be drawn up for a project on a voluntary scheme for the purpose.
