In cooperation with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and UN Women, the Public Policy Secretariat prepared the Gender Equality Impact Test with accompanying Guidelines for implementing the Gender Equality Impact Test.
When conducting gender equality impact assessment, using gender equality test is an important instrument for introducing gender equality into the decision-making process. The application of this test will assess whether the proposed law or other regulation will have different impact on women and men, i.e. whether it will have a positive or negative impact on gender equality.
Based on the conducted gender equality test, the proponent looks at the potential regulatory impact on gender equality, assesses whether it is necessary to determine corrective measures that will mitigate the potential negative regulatory impact on gender equality, or decides to conduct a detailed regulatory impact assessment in terms of gender equality.
The proponent presents the results of the conducted test in the Report on the conducted regulatory impact assessment, which is submitted to the Public Policy Secretariat for an opinion.
The final version of the gender equality test and accompanying guidelines is available on the Public Policy Secretariat website.
