OPINION OF THE COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN AFFAIRS

Ref.: D(2019)4005

Mr Bernd Lange

Chair

Committee on International Trade

Subject:  Opinion on the report on the Union General Export Authorisation for the export of certain dual-use items from the Union to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (2018/0435(COD)

Dear Chair,

Under the procedure referred to above, the Committee on Foreign Affairs has been asked to submit an opinion to your committee. On 24 January 2019, our committee decided to send the opinion in the form of a letter.

The Committee on Foreign Affairs decided to call on the Committee on International Trade, as the committee responsible, to incorporate the following suggestions into its motion for a resolution.

“A. Whereas in the context of the UK's withdrawal from the EU, the Commission has adopted five legislative proposals in the event of a no-deal scenario. The proposed measures are specific, limited and targeted at remedying the negative impact of a disorderly withdrawal or at enabling the necessary adaptation of the legislation. As noted in the Conference of Committee Chairs (CCC) earlier this month, the EP should ensure the adoption of this relevant legislation as quickly as possible;

B. Whereas the AFET Committee is to provide an opinion to the International Trade Committee (INTA) Report on the proposed regulation adding the UK to the list of countries for which a general authorisation to export dual use items is valid throughout the EU, under Rules 50 (3) and 53 of the European Parliament's Rules of procedure;

C. Whereas the sole purpose of the proposed regulation is to amend Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 by granting a Union General Export Authorisation for the export of certain dual-use items from the Union to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland through two amendments to Annex IIa, Part 2 of Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009;

1. The AFET Committee recommends not to modify the proposed regulation [2018/0435 (COD)] (i.e. to agree to the Commission proposal).”

Yours sincerely,

David McAllister
