This report is a literature review of guidelines for transport appraisal. It is based on guidelines for transport appraisal/cost-benefit analysis in 7 countries in the Western world that have comparable traditions in the use of cost-benefit analysis their transport sectors as Norway. We review and compare their recommendations on 21 important topics in such analyses. In this respect, this report will serve as a reference work for a systematic overview of different countries' practices on specific issues within cost-benefit analysis in the transport sector. The intention is that it will contribute to Norway’s (and other countries’) future work on the development of guidelines for such analyses, where one can learn from what is recommended practice in other countries. Above all, with this report's descriptions, explanations and clear source references, those working on the development of guidelines for cost-benefit analysis in the transport sector will have a good starting point for assessing potential improvements in the light of international recommended practice.
