The EASO practical guide ‘Evidence assessment’ is intended as a practical checklist and brief guidance to accompany the case officers across the European Union and beyond in their daily work. The guide is designed in accordance with the relevant legal requirements and at the same time suggests a practical approach, applicable in the daily work of case officers. It meets the demand for the translation of those common standards into a common approach to their implementation and the overall aim of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) of treating alike cases alike. This is a practical guide... developed in the EASO Quality Matrix process. It should be seen in conjunction with the practical guides previously developed and the ones which follow, for example the 'Practical guide on the personal interview' and the 'Practical guide on identification of persons with special needs'.
