This European Implementation Assessment (EIA) has been provided to accompany the work of the European Parliament's Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety in scrutinising the implementation of the directive establishing a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products ('Ecodesign Directive'). The EIA consists of an opening analysis and two briefing papers. The opening analysis, prepared in-house by the Ex-Post Evaluation Unit within EPRS, situates the directive in the EU policy context, provides key information on implementation of the directive and presents opinions of selected stakeholders on implementation. The paper contains also short overview of consumers' opinions and behaviour. Input to the assessment was received from CPMC SPRL and from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, both in the form of briefing papers: – the first paper gathers the opinions of EU-level and national stakeholders on successes in, failures of and challenges to the implementation of the directive and the underlying reasons. Experts from seven Member States were interviewed: Belgium, Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom, Poland, Portugal and Finland. These interviews are complemented by a literature review of available studies, reports and position papers; – the second paper is based on three elements. The first part presents an analysis of the Ecodesign Directive, ecodesign working plans and related regulations, the second is based on an analysis of the scientific articles discussing the application of the directive to specific product groups and the third presents the results of the on-line surveys evaluating the application of the regulations of the directive for selected product groups.

The '.eu' top-level domain

EURid, a Belgian not-for-profit organisation, manages the .eu TLD registry; .eu domain names can be registered through a network of 712 'accredited registrars'. According to the latest Commission report on the .eu TLD, at the beginning of 2015, with almost 4 million registrations, the .eu TLD ranked eleventh among the biggest top-level domains in the world (with '.com' heading the list) and sixth among country code top-level domains (ccTLD). The inception impact assessment on the review of the .eu TLD regulation, published by the Commission, pointed to problems which should be tackled, e.g. market development. The reviewed regulation should also simplify the management of the .eu TLD. Between May and August 2017, the Commission ran public consultations with the aim of reviewing the existing .eu TLD legislation. The results of the consultations are not yet available.

Illicit trade in cultural goods

Illicit trade (or trafficking) in cultural goods is defined by the European Commission as the 'illicit import, export and transfer of ownership of cultural property, i.e. items being of importance for archaeology, prehistory, history, literature, art or science' and is characterised as ranging 'from theft from cultural heritage institutions or private collections, through looting of archaeological sites to the displacement of artefacts due to war'. The European Commission points out that trafficking in cultural goods 'fosters terrorism, money laundering, tax evasion, and organised crime' and that 'Europe, where art and culture are highly prized and where many wealthy buyers can be found, is a favourite outlet for trafficking'. Cultural goods have a significant economic value in the market and the trafficking of cultural goods and antiquities is estimated to be worth between US$50 million and US$150 million a year. The European Union does not have common rules on the import of cultural goods. Two EU acts govern only selected areas: Regulation (EU) 116/2009 lays down rules on the export of cultural goods, and Directive 2014/60/EU governs the return of cultural objects taken unlawfully from another EU country. Furthermore, most Member States impose restrictions on imports of culture goods (e.g. requiring declarations or controls) in line with Articles 34 and 35 of Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). On 13 July 2017 the European Commission tabled a proposal for a regulation on the import of cultural goods, which will set out conditions and procedure for the entry of cultural goods into the customs territory of the EU. The Commission is also preparing a study on illicit trade in cultural goods in the EU and the new technologies available to combat it.

Information and communication technologies play an increasing role in modern-day life and in the creation of a digital society. To ensure further growth, significant investments in security are necessary. Cybersecurity is a growing concern for citizens, influencing their digital activity. It is also a significant cost for the economy. In 2015, the estimated worldwide economic impact of cyber-attacks reached US$500 billion. The cybersecurity market in Europe was estimated at €20.1 billion. The European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) was established to support the EU and the Member States in enhancing and strengthening their ability to prevent, detect and respond to network and information security (NIS) problems and incidents. ENISA is part of the broader legal and policy environment, which includes the EU cybersecurity strategy and the recently adopted directive on security of networks and information systems across the EU.
