An informal deal to ban surcharges ("roaming fees") for making mobile phone calls, sending text messages or using the internet while abroad in another EU country from 15 June 2017 was struck by MEPs and EU ministers in the small hours of Tuesday morning. MEPs also inserted guarantees that all internet traffic is treated equally, without discrimination. To enter into force, this informal deal needs to be formally endorsed by the full Parliament and the Council of Ministers.

Internet providers should no longer be able to block or slow down internet services provided by their competitors, says the Industry Committee which on Tuesday approved rules to protect net neutrality. Under the latest draft EU “telecoms” package legislation, MEPs also voted against "roaming charges", extra costs for using a mobile phone in another EU country. These charges should be banned from 15 December 2015, MEPs say.

The EU should boost the use of advanced types of biofuels by setting mandatory targets but a reliable model for measuring indirect land use change (ILUC) must be found before including it in legislation, said Energy Committee MEPs in a vote on fuel quality and renewable energy legislation on Thursday. The committee's proposed changes will be put to a vote in plenary, along with amendments to be adopted by Environment Committee, which has the lead on this file.

       
 

Akrediteerimine 

Euroopa Parlamendi hoonetesse sisenemiseks ja seal töötamiseks peavad ajakirjanikud, fotograafid ja võtterühmad taotlema trükiajakirjanduse akrediteeringut või audiovisuaalse meedia eriakrediteeringut.

Korduma kippuvad küsimused 

Kuidas käib Euroopa Parlamendi saadikute töö, kui palju saavad nad palka ja millised on nende kulutused? Vastused neile ja teistele küsimustele on koondatud korduma kippuvate küsimuste alla.

Võta ühendust 

Euroopa Parlamendi pressiesindajate tööks on ajakirjanike abistamine ning nende teavitamine parlamendi komisjonides ja täiskogul tehtavast tööst.
