- Dopo la votazione:


  Statement by the Commission The Commission notes that the co-legislators have included in the final compromise text a provision according to which the Commission would be required to produce guidelines after consultation of stakeholders, within 24 months of the entry into force of the Directive.

While recognising the usefulness of such guidance, the Commission is of the view that the adoption of non-binding guidelines by the Commission should not be subject to procedural obligations laid down in the legislative act since the Commission has its own autonomous right under the Treaty to issue such guidance. Thus, the Commission considers that the obligation to consult stakeholders laid down in Article 1a cannot affect this right.

For these reasons, the Commission notes that this wording is without prejudice to the position the Commission may take on similar matters in the future.
