The Policy Cycle Unit acts as an information and analysis centre for all work in the EP, the Commission and other bodies on the implementation, enforcement and effectiveness of EU law and policies in practice. The unit provides Implementation Appraisals of the operation of existing legislation in practice, whenever a new proposal to update such legislation is foreseen in the Commission's Annual Work Programme. The unit also monitors and provides analytical products on other parts of the policy cycle, and the cycle as a whole, notably a series of 'rolling check-lists' of, for example, evaluation studies by the Commission and review clauses in EU Law and international agreements.
