In the context of the Study on the Evaluation of the legislative framework for tobacco control, Open Evidence supported the European Commission in the design of the questionnaire for the Public Consultation entitled “Evaluation of the legislative framework for tobacco control”, launched by the European Commission the past 21 of February 2023 (https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/have-your-say/initiatives/13481-Evaluation-of-the-legislative-framework-for-tobacco-control/public-consultation_en?utm_source=BenchmarkEmail&utm_campaign=February_2023_Evaluation_legislative_framework_tob_control&utm_medium=email).
Published on the “Have Your Say” web portal, the consultation activity aims at gathering feedbacks from interested stakeholders on the the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), the Tobacco Advertising Directive (TAD) and other related tobacco control policies implemented across the EU.
The evaluation covers a variety of topics, including Identification of knowledge gaps, identification of new sources of evidence and increase the evidence base, collection of qualitative and quantitative data to support policy-making (e.g. socio-economic determinants), gathering information on implementation challenges, barriers, promotors and facilitators; understanding of the different views, problem perceptions and arguments of the various stakeholder groups. In addition to designing the survey, Open Evidence will support the Commission with a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the contributions.
