Proposal for a directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on relating to appliances burning gaseous fuel (codified version)

COM(2007)0633 of 25.10.2007 – 2007/0225(COD)

Having regard to the Inter-institutional Agreement of 20 December 1994 on an accelerated working method for official codification of legislative texts, and in particular to point 4 thereof, the Consultative Working Party, consisting of the respective legal services of the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission, met on 31 October and 8 November 2007 and on 5 June 2009 for the purpose of examining, among others, the aforementioned proposal submitted by the Commission.

At those meetings[1], an examination of the proposal for a directive of the European Parliament and of the Council codifying Council Directive 90/396/EEC of 29 June 1990 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to appliances burning gaseous fuels resulted in the Consultative Working Party’s establishing, by common accord, as follows.

1) In Article 2(2), the wording of the first subparagraph should be replaced by the following wording: "Member States shall communicate in good time to the other Member States and the Commission all changes to the types of gas and corresponding supply pressures used on their territory which have been communicated in accordance with Article 2(2) of Directive 90/396/EEC".

2) Throughout the text of the codification proposal, all occurrences of the wording "CE marking" should be adapted so as to read "CE conformity marking".

In consequence, examination of the proposal has enabled the Consultative Working Party to conclude, without dissent, that the proposal is a straightforward codification of existing texts, without any change in their substance.
