Question for written answer  E-006919/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Marlene Mortler (PPE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: New rules on certain single-use plastic products

The directive on single-use plastic products, adopted in the summer of 2019, contains a range of measures concerning single-use plastic products which the Member States must transpose into national law by 3 July 2021. In order to support the Member States in transposing what are at times very complex rules, the directive provides that the Commission shall develop two sets of guidelines and adopt nine implementing acts.

1. Why did the Commission not manage to submit the guidelines on the scope of the directive (Article 12) on time, i.e. by 3 July 2020?

2. When will the Commission adopt these guidelines, which are important for transposition, and what does the Commission think will be the consequences of the delay for the economic sectors concerned?

3. Does the Commission consider it advisable to propose a postponement of the transposition deadline because of the delay?
