The IED cost-benefit analysis tool helps assess IED derogation requests.

It is for use by derogation applicants and Environment Agency assessors to enter all information relevant to the derogation appraisal.

The tool relies on you entering information into relevant cells in the workbook. However, the tool also automates a number of steps of the appraisal process, as explained in the user guide.
