Establishing, as part of the Integrated Border Management Fund, the instrument for financial support for customs control equipment (A8-0460/2018 - Jiří Pospíšil)  
 

The proposed instrument for financial support for customs control equipment, as part of a new Integrated Border Management Fund (IBMF) in the MFF for the period 2021-2027, aims to reinforce checks on goods entering and exiting the Union’s borders by providing funding for the purchase, maintenance and upgrading of customs control equipment such as new scanners, automated number plate detection systems and mobile laboratories for sample analysis. The instrument is a new financial tool developed in response to prior requests from the Member States and is thus based on their needs as regards better management of both external and internal borders. I regard this proposal as an excellent means of ensuring greater cohesion between Member States, as well as guaranteeing greater control over goods entering and exiting the Union, and that is why I support it. However, it is imperative to add that an appropriate way of publishing information about the instrument should be subject to the Commission’s own consideration without establishing any stringent rules in this regard.

Temporary withdrawal of preferences in certain agreements concluded between the EU and certain third countries (A8-0330/2018 - Christofer Fjellner)  
 

. ‒ The majority of the EU’s trade agreements contain bilateral safeguard mechanisms allowing the parties to respond to significant increases in imports resulting from the liberalisation of tariffs under the Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) leading to serious damage to domestic industries. Furthermore, a number of EU trade agreements may include special mechanisms which also confer the possibility to introduce the MFN customs duty rate under specific circumstances. The provisions proposed by the European Commission for the horizontal safeguard clause are very similar to the pattern of the Regulations implementing the bilateral safeguard clauses of the agreements with Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Central American nations. I support the proposed provisions as they create legal clarity and a coherent application of procedures for all involved parties whilst not replacing any current bilateral safeguard regulations already in place. However, further effort must be made to ensure that such safeguards are not utilised for protectionist purposes, and that the proposed provisions are both transparent and flexible to ensure their maximum effectiveness. It is thus evident that I support the proposals to establish and encourage that the reforms for greater transparency and flexibility be incorporated.

Establishing the 'Customs' programme for cooperation in the field of customs (A8-0464/2018 - Maria Grapini)  
 

The Customs Programme establishes the framework for cooperation in the field of customs for the period 2021-2027 and is the successor of the Customs 2020 programme. The programme continues to facilitate coordination between Member States authorities and capacity building, including training and exchange of best practices, in order to ensure a uniform application of EU customs legislation. One primary focus of the customs programme will be the further development, operation and maintenance of the customs IT-infrastructure. This programme should be coherent and exploit all synergies with other EU programmes and funds, its implementation respecting the principles of transparency, proportionality, equal treatment and non-discrimination. The customs union is one of the main pillars of the single market. The modernisation of customs processes may foster economic activity and growth through enhancement of the competitiveness of the European Industry and through facilitation of trade, and can ensure the protection of Europe’s consumers. This customs programme is thus essential to achieving these goals. I support the proposal for establishing a customs programme; this endeavour will foster economic growth through greater competitiveness, whilst promoting greater cooperation between Member States.
