Question for written answer P-005048-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Laurenţiu Rebega (ECR)

 Subject:  Mechanism to resolve legal and administrative obstacles in a cross-border context
 Answer in writing 

The European Commission has recently proposed the introduction of a mechanism allowing a Member State to apply the laws of a neighbouring Member State in a cross-border region if its own laws would create a legal obstacle to the realisation of a joint project.

While recourse to the proposed new mechanism is optional, Member States are required to choose between this and other ‘existing ways’ to resolve legal obstacles hampering the implementation of a joint project in cross-border regions. (Article 4).

What does the Commission mean by other ‘existing ways’?

Has an exhaustive list of such alternatives (referred to in SWD/2017/0307) been drawn up or are they being made subject to certain criteria regarded as acceptable under the proposal for a regulation?
