Review and Assessment: Appraisal Checklists

In carrying out the appraisal of Review and Assessment reports, the following checklists are utilised. These have been devised from the Technical Guidance (LAQM.TG(16)) to judge the scientific validity of the decision to proceed or not to proceed to the next stage. These checklists are regularly updated to reflect changes in guidance and/or to collate specific information at the request of Defra and the Devolved Administrations.
