Annex to the legislative resolution

Statement of the European Parliament concerning placing on the market and use of biocidal products

The European Parliament declares that the provisions of this Regulation regarding delegated and implementing acts are the result of a delicate compromise, which in some cases departs from Parliament's position in first reading. In order to achieve a second reading agreement, the European Parliament has therefore accepted implementing acts instead of delegated acts in certain specific cases. It underlines, however, that those provisions shall not be taken or used as a precedent for regulating similar situations in future legislative acts.
