    –   having regard to Article 251(2) and Article 285(1) of the EC Treaty, pursuant to which the Commission submitted the proposal to Parliament (C6‑0452/2007),

    –   having regard to Rule 51 of its Rules of Procedure,

    EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

    Following the revision of the Council decision 1999/468/EC in July 2006 a new comitology procedure, the regulatory procedure with scrutiny, has been introduced.

    The regulatory procedure with scrutiny significantly increases the European Parliament's rights of oversight of implementing measures and gives the European Parliament the right not only to exercise scrutiny of a draft implementing measure, but it also extends the grounds on the basis of which the European Parliament may oppose a draft measure or may propose amendments to a draft implementing measure.

    In order to reflect amendments to the Council decision 1999/468/EC, the European Parliament has drafted a list of priority acts to be aligned with the new regulatory procedure with scrutiny. This priority alignment was completed in the European Parliament in November 2007.

    The present amending regulation is part of the general alignment that the European Commission is currently running.
