European Parliament resolution of 27 March 2019 on the Commission delegated regulation of 14 December 2018 amending Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 515/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing as part of the Internal Security Fund, the instrument for financial support for external borders and visa (C(2018)08465 – 2018/2994(DEA))

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the Commission delegated regulation (C(2018)08465),

–  having regard to Article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

–  having regard to Regulation (EU) No 515/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 establishing as part of the Internal Security Fund, the instrument for financial support for external borders and visa and repealing Decision No 574/2007/EC (1), and in particular Articles 7(2) and 17(5) thereof,

–  having regard to the motion for a resolution by the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs,

–  having regard to Rule 105(3) of its Rules of Procedure,

A.  whereas Article 1 of the Commission delegated regulation proposes that Annex II of Regulation (EU) No 515/2014 be amended to include a specific action related to ‘[the] establishment, development and operation including the provision of services such as identification, [...] registration and first reception, of hotspot areas’;

B.  whereas the Commission delegated regulation proposes that a concept of ‘controlled centres’ be included in that new specific action, and thus that funding be provided to Member States for the provision of services in such ‘controlled centres’;

C.  whereas the concept of ‘controlled centres’ is a controversial concept of questionable legality which does not exist under Union law and has not been approved by the co-legislators;

D.  whereas Parliament takes the view that such a concept should not be funded unless and until it is properly defined in an appropriate legislative instrument – adopted by the co-legislators – detailing the legal basis, nature, purpose and objective of such a concept;

1.  Objects to the Commission delegated regulation;

2.  Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Commission and to notify it that the delegated regulation cannot enter into force;

3.  Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council and to the governments and parliaments of the Member States.
