The 4-year Rulemaking Programme 2012-2015 lists the tasks to be completed in 2012, the advance planning for 2013-2015 and the inventory task list. The programme was officially adopted by the ED Decision 2011/007/R of 05 September 2011 and supersedes earlier published RMP programmes.
The Rulemaking Programme is built on the principle that the planning of the first year is a commitment and the planning for the following years might be subject to changes depending on changing priorities and availability of resources. Following this principle, the present 4-year Rulemaking Programme 2012-2015 commits the Agency to the rulemaking tasks planned for finalisation in 2012. The planning for the following years (2013-2015) is indicative and may be revised during the next planning cycle.
Guidance about the format and how to navigate the 4-year Rulemaking Programme is provided in chapter "3.2 Format Overview" of the document 2012-2015 Rulemaking Programme. It is advised to consult this part before starting reading the whole programme.
