Parliamentary questions
3 February 2016
E-015476/2015
Answer given by Ms Bulc on behalf of the Commission

The Commission disagrees with the above interpretation: Directive 2000/84/EC (also called Summertime Directive) obliges all Member States to switch from winter‐ to summer-time and vice-versa, at the precise points in time specified therein. The aim is to ensure the proper operation of the internal market, notably (but not exclusively) in the areas of transport and communications. Omission by a Member State of those changes would amount to a breach of the Summertime Directive.
