The FISC Subcommittee will exchange views with Ms. Lyudmila Petkova, Chair of the Code of Conduct Group on the reform of the Code of Conduct Group criteria and process on 19 April 2021 from 13:45-15:00 (CET). The discussion comes in context of calls for reform from both the Commission and the European Parliament, most recently in its resolution of 21 January 2021 on reforming the EU list of tax havens, spurred by developments in tax matters since the establishment of the CoC in 1997.

The exchange presents a unique opportunity for the FISC Subcommittee to gather information from the Chair of the Conduct of Conduct on the state of play regarding the internal discussions on the reform of the Code of Conduct and on how the eventual reforms under consideration could improve the effectiveness of the Code to curb harmful tax competition. The discussion will feed into the upcoming FISC report on "Reforming the EU policy on harmful tax practices (including the reform of the Code of Conduct Group)"
