Article 37 (2) of the Common Provisions Regulation establishes the legal framework for an ex‑ante assessment and fi-compass provides a useful range of advisory information to help managing authorities advance with ex-ante assessments. This includes:

The summary findings and conclusions of ex-ante assessments in relation to financial instruments shall be published within three months of their date of finalisation. Examples of these summary findings provided by Member States are listed below. We will continue to populate this new section of the website as we receive more information from the Member States about their published ex-ante summaries. Please note that inclusion of these ex-ante summaries on this fi-compass webpage cannot be considered as an endorsement or approval of the contents of the respective ex-ante assessment by the European Commission and/or by the European Investment Bank Group.
