The consulting company ICF has been commissioned by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Justice and Consumers to conduct a Study to support the evaluation of the relevant provisions in EU law, in particular, Directive 2006/54/EC, implementing the Treaty principle on 'equal pay for equal work or work of equal value'.

The study aims to evaluate the implementation of the EU equal pay provisions, their enforcement and the protection of victims of discrimination in the EU Member States, including pay transparency measures following the 2014 Pay Transparency Recommendation. The study will look at the relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency and EU added value of EU provisions in this regard.
