First follow-up to Commission answer to Written Question E-005112/2021 on registration of ECI(2021)000008 and the competence of the Commission to stop trade with illegal settlements
Question for written answer E-001156/2022
to the Commission
Clare Daly (The Left)
In its answer to Written Question E-005112/2021, the Commission states that ‘In principle, only the EU can decide to prohibit the importation of goods and services and not the Member States individually’. Although in its answer the Commission cites Regulation 2015/478, which sets out the detailed EU Common Rules for Imports, the answer is silent on the specific rules (lex specialis) therein.
Can the Commission confirm that it recognises that, under Article 24(2)(a) of the EU Common Rules for Imports, Member States are permitted to adopt quantitative restrictions on the grounds of public morality and public policy?
