ANNEX

Statement by the European Parliament on correlation tables

The European Parliament regrets that the Council was not prepared to accept the mandatory publication of correlation tables in the context of the proposal for a Directive on consumer rights. It is hereby declared that the agreement reached between the European Parliament and the Council in the trilogue of 6 June 2011 concerning this Directive does not prejudge the outcome of interinstitutional negotiations on correlation tables.

The European Parliament calls on the Commission to inform it within twelve months after adoption of this agreement in plenary and to make a report at the end of the transposition period on the practice of Member States in drawing up their own tables illustrating, as far as possible, the correlation between this Directive and the transposition measures, and to make them public.

The European Parliament welcomes the agreement reached on including in the Directive on consumer rights mandatory reporting requirements concerning those provisions of this Directive, Council Directive 93/13/EEC and Directive 1999/44/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, which grant the Member States a regulatory choice (Articles 29, 32 and 33).

Statement by the Hungarian Presidency and the incoming Polish, Danish and Cypriot Presidencies of the Council on correlation tables

It is hereby declared that the agreement reached between the Council and the European Parliament in the trilogue of 6 June 2011 concerning the Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on consumer rights, amending Council Directive 93/13/EEC and Directive 1999/44/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and repealing Council Directive 85/577/EEC and Directive 97/7/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council does not prejudge the outcome of interinstitutional negotiations on correlation tables.
