Steps towards a definitive VAT system

26-09-2018

Harmonisation of domestic provisions on value added tax – VAT – dates back to 1967 because of the potential distorting effect of this consumption tax on the single market. The transitional VAT arrangements, departing from the destination-based principle, have applied in the single market for more than two decades. Since 2016, the VAT framework is being reviewed and updated, moving to a destination-based framework that also includes a revision of the VAT rate provisions. Parliament is due to vote ...

EU Agency for Criminal Justice Cooperation (Eurojust)

26-09-2018

Article 85 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU (TFEU) provides for such a possibility. During its October I plenary session, the Parliament is expected to vote on a proposal for a regulation that ...

Single Market Information Tool (SMIT)

26-09-2018

Single market rules are often undermined, which may, for instance, result in price discrimination towards customers and businesses based on residency. The European Commission has adopted a proposal which would allow it to request business-related information (e.g. pricing policy) directly from market participants. The legal basis for the proposal, however, has raised some criticism. The European Parliament is due to vote during its October I plenary session on the proposal.

As part of the third 'Europe on the move' package of measures, on 27 May 2018, the European Commission presented a proposal for a regulation on type-approval requirements for motor vehicles and their trailers, as regards their general safety and the protection of vehicle occupants and vulnerable road users. The regulation is part of the EU's efforts to halve the number of fatal and serious injuries in road crashes between 2020 and 2030. It would introduce a number of advanced vehicle safety features that passenger cars, vans, buses and trucks would have to have as standard equipment in order to be sold on the internal market. It would replace three current type-approval regulations: the General Vehicle Safety Regulation, the Pedestrian Protection Regulation and the Hydrogen-Powered Motor Vehicles Regulation. In the European Parliament, the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection is in charge of the file. First edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

This report summarises the proceedings of a workshop organised by the European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Human Rights (DROI), in association with the Committee on Legal Affairs (JURI) and the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE). Academics and practitioners discussed international trends as regards the concept of universal jurisdiction and the EU’s approach to promoting universal jurisdiction through its external relations, as well as practical experience in applying universal jurisdiction in the fight against impunity in Europe. The experts agreed that universal jurisdiction can play a role as part of a wider accountability strategy, complementary to international courts and prosecutions on other jurisdictional bases. They recommended more specialised training for investigators, prosecutors, judges and law enforcement staff for universal jurisdiction cases and more cooperation at EU and international level. Speakers supported the initiative for a multilateral treaty on mutual legal assistance and extradition. Special attention in universal jurisdiction cases must be given to victims seeking justice, including for sexual and gender-based crimes.

Research for CULT Committee - Mobility of artists and culture professionals: towards a European policy framework

14-09-2018

Mobility is a social and economic condition of artists and culture professionals and, at the same time, a vector of social and economic development. However, mobility in the cultural and creative sectors is faced with a number of issues that need to be addressed at EU and national levels. The paper provides recommendations for a EU-wide mobility framework which entails both a dedicated mobility scheme and an improved regulatory environment that would facilitate mobility in Europe.
