Approval of glyphosate: Latest developments

10-11-2017

Glyphosate, one of the world's most widely used active substances in herbicides, has become the subject of controversy. A proposal by the European Commission to renew its approval for five years failed to gather a qualified majority of Member States and is to be submitted to an appeal body. The European Parliament has called for glyphosate to be phased out by 2022.

European Maritime and Fisheries Fund

15-06-2017

The €6 396.6 million European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) is the smallest of the European Structural and Investment Funds for the 2014-2020 period, but it is the major financial tool supporting the EU common fisheries policy (CFP). Slightly less than half of the Fund is dedicated to promoting sustainable fisheries and to fostering sustainable aquaculture. Another significant share contributes to proper implementation of the CFP, particularly for data collection and science-based needs, and ...

The €6 396.6 million European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) is the smallest of the European Structural and Investment Funds for the 2014-2020 period, but it is the major financial tool supporting the EU common fisheries policy (CFP). Slightly less than half of the Fund is dedicated to promoting sustainable fisheries and to fostering sustainable aquaculture. Another significant share contributes to proper implementation of the CFP, particularly for data collection and science-based needs, and control and enforcement of rules. A small part of the EMFF is also aimed at supporting an integrated maritime policy (IMP) for the EU.

Strengthening air passenger rights in the EU

27-05-2015

Over recent decades, the liberalisation of air transport in the EU has brought notable benefits to air passengers, including some lower air fares and a wider choice of airlines and services. At the same time, however, increased numbers of passengers and planes travelling through bigger and more crowded airports, and fragmented air space, increase the risk of problems such as flight delays and cancellations, and lost luggage. The EU has adopted several regulations on air passenger rights, which ...

Over recent decades, the liberalisation of air transport in the EU has brought notable benefits to air passengers, including some lower air fares and a wider choice of airlines and services. At the same time, however, increased numbers of passengers and planes travelling through bigger and more crowded airports, and fragmented air space, increase the risk of problems such as flight delays and cancellations, and lost luggage. The EU has adopted several regulations on air passenger rights, which complement the relevant international conventions and recommendations, to deal with such problems. However, not all passengers are aware of, or insist on, enforcement of their rights. For their part, airlines claim to struggle with financial costs and legal uncertainty. Grey areas, gaps in the current legislation and inconsistent implementation have led to numerous cases on passenger rights coming before the Court of Justice of the EU. In 2013, to address these shortcomings and the Court's decisions, the European Commission proposed to modify the existing air passenger rights regulations. Among other provisions, it specified in greater detail certain air passenger rights, clarified key definitions, and modified certain time thresholds for compensation measures, as well as limiting the obligation for airlines to provide assistance in case of long delays. The outgoing Parliament adopted its first-reading position on the proposal in February 2014. It introduced certain new elements and rejected some provisions that, in Parliament's view, weakened air passenger rights. Although the Council has made some progress on the file, it has not agreed on a general approach for negotiations with the Parliament. Stakeholders generally welcomed the clarifications in the Commission proposal and the EP's position, although they do not support all the modifications.

Coordination of social security systems: Implementation Appraisal

15-01-2015

According to the report of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) there are around 10.5 million migrant workers in the EU, one million people crossing EU borders for work every day and about 250,000 people who have worked in more than one Member State and need to export a part of their pension rights every year. The way social security is organised differs among European countries, since every Member State remains free to design its social security system independently. European rules determine ...

According to the report of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) there are around 10.5 million migrant workers in the EU, one million people crossing EU borders for work every day and about 250,000 people who have worked in more than one Member State and need to export a part of their pension rights every year. The way social security is organised differs among European countries, since every Member State remains free to design its social security system independently. European rules determine however under which country's system a person should be insured when two or more countries are involved - for instance, if that person lives or works abroad in the EU. In principle, social security coverage must be ensured by the country of employment and for economically non-active EU citizens, the country of residence. The complex system of EU rules on social security coordination has a long history of contributing to the labour mobility in Europe and requires intensive cooperation between the Member States' authorities. Numerous provisions are subject to problems in implementation, or rather their application in specific cases continues to raise controversies. The opportunity of proposing a legislative revision within a broader package on citizens' and workers' rights would provide the occasion for improvements to the rules.

The EU’s 2014-2020 External Financial Instruments: An Opportunity for the European Parliament to Play a Greater Role

29-01-2014

On 11 December 2013, following 18 months of trilogue negotiations between the European Parliament, the Commission and the Council, MEPs endorsed a compromise on the EU’s external financial instruments. With a total value of approximately EUR 51 billion, the new external financial instruments – which include the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance, the European Neighbourhood Instrument, the Instrument for Stability and Peace, the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights, the Instrument ...

On 11 December 2013, following 18 months of trilogue negotiations between the European Parliament, the Commission and the Council, MEPs endorsed a compromise on the EU’s external financial instruments. With a total value of approximately EUR 51 billion, the new external financial instruments – which include the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance, the European Neighbourhood Instrument, the Instrument for Stability and Peace, the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights, the Instrument for Development Cooperation and the newly created Partnership Instrument – will provide the framework to determine and disburse EU financial assistance. The compromise enhances the EP’s role in overseeing the instruments. The main negotiation stumbling block has concerned the use of 'delegated acts', though this may be overcome by combining annexes amendable through delegated acts, a compulsory mid-term review of these annexes and a ‘strategic dialogue’ mechanism permitting greater consultation with the European Parliament for the multiannual programming documents.

European Administrative Law in the Light of the Treaty of Lisbon : Introductory Remarks

This contribution covers the development of European administrative law, in particular the changes which the Treaty of Lisbon has brought about. Next to a growing amount of secondary law EU administrative law has been mainly shaped by the Court of Justice of the European Union. However, it still lacks a coherent structure.

This contribution covers the development of European administrative law, in particular the changes which the Treaty of Lisbon has brought about. Next to a growing amount of secondary law EU administrative law has been mainly shaped by the Court of Justice of the European Union. However, it still lacks a coherent structure. The author, thus, pleads for the codification of the major rules on administrative procedures in particular in the field of indirect implementation of European law – on a yet to be established legal basis in the Treaties which – in his view – the Lisbon Treaty still does not provide for.
