TAIEX is the Technical Assistance and Information Exchange instrument of the European Commission. TAIEX supports public administrations with regard to the approximation, application and enforcement of EU legislation as well as facilitating the sharing of EU best practices. It is largely needs-driven and delivers appropriate tailor-made expertise to address issues at short notice in three ways:

  • Workshops: EU Member State experts present specific areas of EU legislation in workshops to a large number of beneficiary officials
  • Expert missions: EU Member States expert(s) are sent to the beneficiary administration to provide in-depth advice on the transposition, implementation or enforcement of a specific part of EU legislation
  • Study visits: a group of five practitioners from a beneficiary administration take part in a study visit to an EU Member State’s administration

In addition to TAIEX, there is also twinning now available also to the OCTs (for governments to request the services in both cases), the two are very similar.
