The execution framework serves to facilitate the different inspection activities, e.g. compliance checking through site visits, enforcement actions like imposing sanctions, compliance assistance through organising information campaigns etc. Within this step, protocols and working instructions are developed and conditions for realisation. This step is necessary to make sure that inspection activities can be executed effectively, efficiently, professionally and consistently.
The execution framework should at least cover (in no order of preference):
- Protocols and working instructions for routine and non-routine inspections;
- Procedures for imposing sanctions;
- Development of inspection and enforcement handbooks;
- Protocols for communication with the public (access to information) and with Industry;
- Information management (e.g. information systems) and informationexchange (within the organization and with partner organizations),;
- Conditions for realisation:
– Clear authorisations and competencies (e.g. legal right of access to site and information);
– System for planning, programming and monitoring;
– Facilities and materials needed (e.g. computers, transport, means of communication);
– Maintenance and calibration of equipment.
