Conclusions of the studies on consumer protection & discrimination of consumers

The conclusions and subsequent nine recommendations of a study related to consumer protection aspects of financial services will be presented by its authors from London Economics to Members of the IMCO Committee during their meeting of 6 October. At the same meeting, a research team from Osnabrück University will present a study on discrimination of consumers in the Digital Single Market, which assesses discrimination from the perspective of different areas of European law and provides for several policy recommendations.

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.

Pozdravne besede
 
 

Odbor IMCO je odgovoren za zakonodajni nadzor in pregled pravil, ki v EU veljajo za prosti pretok blaga  in storitev, prosto gibanje strokovnjakov, carinsko politiko, standardizacijo in ekonomske interese potrošnikov.  Člani odbora si prizadevamo, da bi odpravili ovire za gospodarstvo in trgovino ter poenostavili predpise. Na ta način bomo spodbudili konkurenčnost vsepovsod na enotnem trgu, hkrati pa bomo poskrbeli za interese potrošnikov v številnih sektorjih.

Delo našega odbora lahko spremljate na tem spletnem mestu, kjer boste našli dnevne rede, gradivo za seje, obvestila o predstavitvah/delavnicah,  pretočni video in naše glasilo.

Urejen enotni trg je ključ, ki bo odprl vrata razcvetu, inovacijam in večji konkurenčnosti – prav ta pa prinaša koristi podjetjem in potrošnikom.  Pred nami so številni izzivi in priložnosti, med njimi predvsem kako sprostiti potencial digitalnega enotnega trga in enotnega trga na področju storitev. 
 
Naša naloga je, da zagotovimo varne proizvode, zaščitimo pravice potrošnikov, potrošnike obveščamo o proizvodih in storitvah, strožje nastopamo do protikonkurenčnega ravnanja in zmanjšamo administrativne ovire.

Odbor sodeluje z vsemi državami članicami EU in si prizadeva za takšna pravila enotnega trga, ki bodo izvedljiva v praksi in bodo omogočala ustrezno in pravočasno izvajanje in uveljavljanje.

V čast mi je, da predsedujem temu pomembnemu odboru in s člani z najrazličnejšim političnim diapazonom sodelujem v dobro potrošnikov, podjetij in drugih organizacij na celotnem skupnem trgu.
