The European Council in 2015

25-07-2016

Designed to be the first in a series of annual publications, this In-Depth Analysis by the European Council Oversight Unit of the European Parliament Research Service (EPRS) examines in detail the activity of the European Council in 2015 in all of the six policy areas which have most attracted the attention of the Heads of State or Government: namely migration, economic governance, foreign and security policy, terrorism, and work towards a new settlement for the United Kingdom in the European Union ...

Designed to be the first in a series of annual publications, this In-Depth Analysis by the European Council Oversight Unit of the European Parliament Research Service (EPRS) examines in detail the activity of the European Council in 2015 in all of the six policy areas which have most attracted the attention of the Heads of State or Government: namely migration, economic governance, foreign and security policy, terrorism, and work towards a new settlement for the United Kingdom in the European Union. Although European Council’s principal mission is meant to be strategic, in 2015 the institution mainly engaged in crisis management, due principally to the outbreak of the migration crisis. This led to an increase in the number of meetings: eight meetings of the Heads of State or Government were held, two of which were of an informal nature. Except for one informal meeting, the European Council President, Donald Tusk, reported to the European Parliament on the outcome of the meetings of the Heads of State or Government as required by the Treaties.

There are three NUTS NUTS: 1, 2 and 3 respectively, moving from smaller to larger territorial units.NUTS 2 divides EU territory into 276 regions with minimum and maximum population thresholds of 800 000 and 3 000 000.

It is used for allocating European structural and investment funds to EU regions.This paper provides statistics for the 276 NUTS 2 regions, firstly looking at GDP and unemployment for the years 2004 and 2014.

Anti-tax-avoidance directive

19-07-2016

The proposal for a directive on 'Rules against tax avoidance practices that directly affect the functioning of the internal market' was one of two legislative proposals of the 28 January 2016 European Commission 'anti-tax-avoidance package'. Linked with the OECD/G20 Base erosion and profit shifting action plan (BEPS), it targets schemes where corporate taxpayers operating businesses in several countries take advantage of disparities and loopholes to reduce their tax bills. The objective is to realign ...

The proposal for a directive on 'Rules against tax avoidance practices that directly affect the functioning of the internal market' was one of two legislative proposals of the 28 January 2016 European Commission 'anti-tax-avoidance package'. Linked with the OECD/G20 Base erosion and profit shifting action plan (BEPS), it targets schemes where corporate taxpayers operating businesses in several countries take advantage of disparities and loopholes to reduce their tax bills. The objective is to realign corporate taxation with the relevant business substance (income) of the corporate taxpayer, fighting against aggressive corporate tax avoidance. The proposal for a directive sets legally binding minimum standards for six practices. Three of these are included in the BEPS action plan (interest limitation rules, controlled foreign company rules, and rules on hybrid mismatches). The other three (a general anti-abuse rule, exit taxation rules and a switchover clause) came out of discussions on the common consolidated corporate tax base (CCCTB) proposal. As a tax measure, Parliament is only consulted, with the proposal adopted by the Council. As finally adopted, the directive covers all these six aspects with the exception of the switchover clause and changes to the rules on the controlled foreign companies (CFC) rules.

New rules on CE marked fertilising products

18-07-2016

Overall, the IA has managed to present well the problem and policy options of a complex policy area. The explanation of the need to revise the existing regulation is clear, as are the policy choices. Nevertheless, it is not very clear from the content and structure of both parts of the IA IA report just how firmly this proposal is integrated into the Circular Economy agenda which it is meant to help implement.

Overall, the IA has managed to present well the problem and policy options of a complex policy area. The explanation of the need to revise the existing regulation is clear, as are the policy choices. Nevertheless, it is not very clear from the content and structure of both parts of the IA IA report just how firmly this proposal is integrated into the Circular Economy agenda which it is meant to help implement. Furthermore, the IA does not always provide clear information regarding the effects on SMEs, and the low numbers of  responses in the SMEs test raises the question of the extent to which it is representative. Finally, both parts of the IA report refrain from giving more concrete timelines other than saying repeatedly ‘in the long run’. The presentation therefore suffers from a somewhat vague timeframe throughout the analysis. Please click here for the full publication in PDF format

Protection of workers from exposure to carcinogens or mutagens

18-07-2016

Overall, the Commission appears to have provided sound reasoning and justification for the initiative. The methodology used to compare the scope of impacts is well-developed, but the proposed range of options limits the scope of the analysis. As Option 3 is barely considered, and Option 4 does not seem to be consistent with the objectives, the added value of these options is not evident. Moreover, both the IA and the Explanatory Memorandum of the proposal are not explicit about the preferred option ...

Overall, the Commission appears to have provided sound reasoning and justification for the initiative. The methodology used to compare the scope of impacts is well-developed, but the proposed range of options limits the scope of the analysis. As Option 3 is barely considered, and Option 4 does not seem to be consistent with the objectives, the added value of these options is not evident. Moreover, both the IA and the Explanatory Memorandum of the proposal are not explicit about the preferred option. More information on the consultation with SCOEL and ACSH would have been welcomed in order to understand the way in which the OELs were set. Finally, it is not entirely clear why the Commission has come forward with this proposal before the ex-post evaluation of the OSH Framework undertaken within the remit of REFIT has been completed. Indeed, including the results of the ex-post evaluation in the IA might have strengthened the Commission’s evidence base as well as further clarified the monitoring and evaluation arrangements and the interaction between the various pieces of legislation under the OSH Framework.

Digital Single Market: Cross-border parcel delivery services

18-07-2016

The Commission has provided sound reasoning and justification for the initiative, including broad and up-to-date use of research and evidence. However, the overall presentation suffers from an unclear definition of the problem and the drivers. The analysis of impacts is extremely limited and very general, a point which was also made in the RSB’s opinion. This limited assessment of impacts remains one of the most problematic features of the IA. Please click here for the full publication in PDF format ...

The Implementation of Bail-In in Recent Resolution and State Aid Cases

07-07-2016

Since 1 January 2016 it is mandatory under the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) to bail-in shareholders and creditors for a minimum amount of 8% of total liabilities before any funds from the Single Resolution Fund may be injected into a bank under resolution. A number of national competent authorities therefore triggered the resolution of weak banks before the deadline of 31 December 2015. However, since 2013 EU State aid rules have imposed (the "2013 Banking Communication") that subordinated ...

Since 1 January 2016 it is mandatory under the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) to bail-in shareholders and creditors for a minimum amount of 8% of total liabilities before any funds from the Single Resolution Fund may be injected into a bank under resolution. A number of national competent authorities therefore triggered the resolution of weak banks before the deadline of 31 December 2015. However, since 2013 EU State aid rules have imposed (the "2013 Banking Communication") that subordinated creditors contribute to the maximum extent (bail-in) to the restructuring of State-aided institutions. All the resolution cases presented below and approved by the European Commission have complied with the State-aid requirement to bail-in subordinated creditors.
