8.3. public effects criterion (assessed in terms of the impact on public confidence, physical suffering and disruption of daily life, including the loss of essential services, alternatives for the provision of services and disruption of services and length of restoration thereof).

9. The cross-cutting criteria thresholds shall be based on the severity of the impact of the disruption or destruction of a particular critical infrastructure.

10. The responsible ministry shall prepare and submit to the Ministry of the Interior proposals for determination of precise threshold values for each critical infrastructure which shall be applied to the cross-cutting criteria.

11. The Ministry of the Interior, on the basis of the submitted proposals, shall:
