Medical devices and in vitro diagnostic medical devices

29-03-2017

The current EU approval system for medical devices (MDs) and in vitro diagnostic medical devices (IVDs) is based on conformity assessment by 'notified bodies'. A number of scandals stressed the need to tighten the regulatory framework for such devices. The European Commission's proposals for regulations on MDs and IVDs, being discussed in parallel, are extensive and will repeal all existing rules. Votes in Parliament at second reading are expected during the April I plenary.

EU external action: Refugees and migrants

29-03-2017

An unprecedented mass movement of asylum-seekers and migrants of all ages to the EU started in 2014, reached a peak in 2015 and then continued in 2016 and into 2017. A coordinated and effective protective response is essential, and that needs both a gender and child-sensitive dimension. The European Parliament is expected to vote on a motion for a resolution on 'Addressing refugee and migrant movements: the role of EU External Action' during the April I plenary session.

Prospectuses for investors

29-03-2017

Prospectuses are legally required documents presenting the information necessary to enable investors to make an informed assessment of the situation of an issuer and of the rights attached to the securities issued. The EU's co-legislators have reached an agreement on the draft regulation to replace the current directive. This compromise is scheduled for a vote at the April I plenary session.

Defining fishing vessels' characteristics

29-03-2017

One dimension of the EU common fisheries policy consists of managing the European fishing fleet and its overall fishing capacity. Rules on the conservation of fisheries resources may vary depending on the features of fishing vessels. During its April I plenary, the Parliament is expected to vote at first reading on a proposal to recast the rules regarding technical characteristics of fishing vessels.

Wholesale roaming markets

29-03-2017

The end of roaming costs within the European Union (EU) – promised at political level for over a decade – is near. Four successive regulations have decreased (but not ended) roaming charges for calls, texts and data by more than 90 %. In 2015, the Council and the European Parliament agreed to abolish roaming charges in the EU from 15 June 2017. A precondition is to have new rules in place for wholesale roaming markets. Parliament is expected to vote on the proposal (following agreement in trilogue ...

Women and their roles in rural areas

29-03-2017

The many roles played by women in rural communities help to maintain vibrant rural areas and viable farm businesses. Yet despite their crucial contribution, rural women still face numerous challenges, such as difficulties accessing the labour market, a lack of adequate public services and a weak presence in decision-making forums. The European Parliament is scheduled to vote on an own-initiative report on these issues at its plenary in early April.

Visa liberalisation for Ukraine

29-03-2017

Building on its Visa Liberalisation Dialogues, the European Commission is proposing to waive visa requirements for 45 million Ukrainian citizens. In parallel, the European Union (EU) has revised its visa suspension mechanism, reinforcing safeguards to apply to all visa liberalisation agreements.

Mid-term revision of the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework

29-03-2017

Agreed in 2013, the current Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) sets the structure of EU spending until 2020. Based on the mid-term review of the MFF, the Commission proposal to revise the MFF Regulation aims at enhancing the EU's budgetary capacity to address new priorities and unexpected events. Parliament, which has long pushed for MFF revision, is expected to decide during April I plenary whether to approve or reject the compromise reached by the Council in March 2017.

Multiannual plan for small pelagic fish stocks in the Adriatic Sea

29-03-2017

The European Commission tabled, on 24 February 2017, a proposal for a regulation establishing a multiannual plan to manage fisheries of small pelagic fish stocks (anchovy and sardine) in the Adriatic Sea. These stocks, which are in a poor state, are exploited mainly by Italian and Croatian fishing vessels. The European Parliament (EP) will now begin to examine this proposal.

The European Commission tabled, on 24 February 2017, a proposal for a regulation establishing a multiannual plan to manage fisheries of small pelagic fish stocks (anchovy and sardine) in the Adriatic Sea. These stocks, which are in a poor state, are exploited mainly by Italian and Croatian fishing vessels. The European Parliament (EP) will now begin to examine this proposal. Multiannual fisheries management plans are essential tools for the sustainable exploitation of marine resources, offering notably better predictability over time on fishing mortality levels to be used by the Council when deciding on annual fishing possibilities. They also set a framework for improved cooperation between the Member States concerned at sea regional level. The first multiannual plan after the last reform of the common fisheries policy in 2013, supposed to serve as a prototype and which covers some stocks in the Baltic sea, was adopted by the European Parliament and the Council in July 2016. Another plan proposal, concerning North Sea stocks, is currently under discussion in the EP. This new plan for small pelagic stocks would, in addition, represent a major shift in fisheries management in the Adriatic Sea, by framing a system of setting allowable catches in this part of the Mediterranean and making it endure over time.
