ANNEX TO THE LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION

Commission Statement

The Regulation on establishing contingency measures in the field of social security coordination following the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union is based on Article 48 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as it concerns measures in the field of social security coordination. An extension of this Regulation to third-country nationals in the same legal act is not possible due to the incompatibility of the legal bases, as such an extension would need to be based on Article 79(2)(b) TFEU.

The Commission considers that third-country nationals covered by Regulation (EU) No 1231/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 November 2010 should continue to benefit from the basic principles of social security coordination intended to be codified in the Regulation on establishing contingency measures in the field of social security coordination, based on the provisions of Regulation (EU) No 1231/2010 and of Regulations (EC) No 883/2004 and (EC) No 987/2009, which remain in force.

The Commission will consider, however, if it becomes necessary at a later stage, to have the principles set out in this Regulation extended to third country nationals legally resident in a Member State who, pursuant to Regulation (EU) No 1231/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 November 2010, are or have been covered by the EU legislation on coordination of social security systems to confirm their entitlements in relation to the period when the United Kingdom was a Member State.
