Presentation of the Italian presidency programme on 24/09

IMCO heard presentations by Ms Simona Vicari (Secretary of State for Economic Development) and Mr Sandro Gozi (Secretary of State for European affairs) on the priorities of the Italian Presidency.
 
Ms Vicari set out the main lines of action and priorities in the fields of consumer protection and standardisation. The Italian Presidency (IP) aims at starting negotiations with the Parliament on the product safety and market surveillance package. Furthermore, the IP is in favour of a comprehensive reinforcement of the Consumer Protection Cooperation Network. Ms Vicari informed that work on the Package Travel Directive is progressing in the Council. In the field of technical harmonisation, the IP will seek an early second reading agreement on e-Call. On registration of vehicles, it is awaiting a study requested from the Commission on possible effects of the new rules on national taxation systems. Finally, on cableway installations, personal protective equipment and appliances burning gaseous fuels, the aim is to reach common approach within the Council, to allow the Latvian Presidency to enter into negotiations with Parliament.
 
Mr Gozi reported about three major themes for the IP: revising working methods of the Competitiveness Council, for instance by improving connections with other Council formations; removing barriers to the internal market in a follow-up to the two Single Market Acts and in completing the Digital Single Market; and furthering consumer protection and cohesion between employers and industry, helped by the additional investment package of 300 billion euros envisaged by Commission.

   
Study: indicators for measuring the Performance of the Single Market

The IMCO Committee heard a presentation of the study recently commissioned by the Committee in the area of Single Market policy. The study on Indicators for measuring the Performance of the Single Market – Building the Single Market Pillar of the European Semester analyses the possibility of defining a monitoring tool and evaluation system to measure the economic and regulatory performance of the Single Market, with a view to making use of these tools in the context of the European Semester. The study concludes that an integrated measurement system can be devised to perform this function. With respect to regulatory indicators, it proposes using a “Single Market Gap” composite indicator which would measure in what Member States and to what extent non-national EU citizens/companies face additional burdens compared to nationals. Such an indicator could be easily used for policy recommendations addressed to Member States during the European Semester.

Validation of coordinator’s recommendation on “unfinished business”

According to Rule 229 of the Rules of Procedure, all Parliaments’ unfinished business shall be deemed to have lapsed, unless at the beginning of the new parliamentary term the Conference of Presidents decides to resume or continue them. In that context, the Committees are invited to conduct a screening exercise concerning the legislative files still open and inform the CCC on the way in which they intend to handle them. At their meeting on 8 September, IMCO committee endorsed (28-0-2) the coordinator’s recommendation.

Tervitussõnad
 
 

Siseturu- ja tarbijakaitsekomisjon vastutab kaupade, teenuste ja spetsialistide vaba liikumist, tollipoliitikat, standardimist ning tarbijate majandushuve käsitlevate ELi eeskirjade õigusliku järelevalve ja kontrolli eest. Komisjoni liikmete töö on vähendada kaubandustõkkeid ja lihtsustada õigusakte, et suurendada konkurentsivõimet ühtsel turul ja samas kaitsta tarbijate huve eri sektorites.

Meie komisjoni tööd on võimalik jälgida selle veebisaidi vahendusel, kust leiate päevakorrad, koosolekute dokumendid, teabe kuulamiste ja seminaride kohta, voogvideod ja meie uudiskirja.

Hästi toimiv ühtne turg on vahend heaolu, innovatsiooni ja suurema konkurentsivõime saavutamiseks, mis on kasulik nii ettevõtjatele kui ka tarbijatele. Meil on palju ülesandeid ja võimalusi, eelkõige kasutada digitaalse ühtse turu ja teenuste ühtse turu täielikku potentsiaali.
 
Meie eesmärk on tagada toodete ohutus, kaitsta tarbijaõigusi, teavitada tarbijaid toodetest ja teenustest, võidelda konkurentsivastase käitumise vastu ning vähendada halduskoormust.

Komisjon teeb koostööd kõigi ELi liikmesriikidega, et tagada ühtse turu eeskirjade kohaldatavus ning nende õigeaegne rakendamine ja jõustamine.

Mul on au olla selle olulise komisjoni esimees ja teha koostööd erinevaid poliitilisi vaateid esindavate liikmetega selle nimel, et tuua tarbijatele, ettevõtjatele ja muudele organisatsioonidele kogu ühtsel turul tõelist kasu.
