  Guido Milana (S&D). - Signor Presidente, sarò breve. La procedura non ha consentito di emendare questa relazione.

Nella fase di trilogo, si è avuto uno scontro importante fra Parlamento, Commissione e Consiglio su un argomento che riguardava la pubblicazione dei beneficiari di questo fondo. Commissione e Consiglio si sono sostanzialmente opposti a questa pubblicazione. Oggi la Commissione cerca di rimediare alla questione con una dichiarazione. Ebbene, noi riteniamo che questa dichiarazione sia insufficiente e personalmente auspico che il prossimo Parlamento, in onore della trasparenza, possa correggere questo provvedimento che oggi approviamo.

  Alain Cadec, rapporteur. - Monsieur le Président, chers collègues, je veux d'abord rapidement rappeler que le FEAMP est le dernier fonds du cadre stratégique commun 2014–2020 et que son adoption, dont je ne doute pas d'ailleurs, va clore la réforme de la politique commune de la pêche après deux ans de bon travail avec la Commission et le Conseil, même si certains prétendent le contraire.

C'est l'instrument pour une pêche durable, dans un secteur compétitif. C'est ce principe qui nous a guidés tout au long de nos travaux. Cela représente deux ans de travail.

Je tiens à remercier les rapporteurs fictifs –[nbsp ]dont M.[nbsp ]Guido[nbsp ]Milana[nbsp ]– qui m'ont accompagné dans ce travail, la Commission, le Conseil, le secrétariat, ainsi que mes collaborateurs, Vincent et Émilie.

 
  
  

Report: Alain Cadec (A7-0282/2013)

Commission Declaration

Reference to article 349 TFEU in the EMFF legal basis

The object and purpose of the Commission’s proposal is the establishment of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund as the main financing instrument for the implementation of the reformed Common Fisheries Policy and thus the attainment of the objectives laid down in Article 39(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). The Commission’s proposal does not aim at introducing any derogation from obligations and/or prohibitions foreseen in the TFEU. For this reason, the Commission considers Article 43(2) TFEU as proposed to be the only correct legal basis in the given context and cannot concur with the addition of Article 349 TFEU as a second legal basis.

Verification of general ex-ante conditionalities at the level of the Partnership Agreements

In accordance with Article 15.1.b.(iii) and Article 19 as well as Part II of Annex XI of the CPR, the fulfilment of general ex-ante conditionalities at national level shall be assessed at the level of the Partnership Agreement, and for those which, pursuant to the assessment, are not fulfilled at the date of submission of the Partnership Agreement, an action plan shall be established with the actions to be taken, the responsible bodies and the timetable for their implementation. In the case of non-fulfilment of the general ex-ante conditionalities, the required action plans will already be drawn up by the competent authorities in Member States as part of the establishment of the Partnership Agreements. General ex-ante conditionalities do thus not require further detailed elaboration within the context of the operational programme co-financed by the EMFF, apart from the inclusion of the parts related to the general ex-ante conditionalities established in the Partnership Agreements.

Publication of the name of natural beneficiaries when in line with the legislation of a MS

The Commission will pay particular attention to the accessibility and transparency of information on how Union funding is spent in the framework of the EMFF. In this context, the Commission will:

closely monitor how Member States implement the obligation to create a user friendly website or website portal providing information on their EMFF operational programmes, including the list of operations supported and the names of beneficiaries;

ensure that these dedicated websites are accessible from a single official Union website to facilitate public access to information from all Member States;

in {2019}, assess to which extent Member States have complied with their obligations concerning the publication of beneficiaries and to what extent the provisions concerning the publication of beneficiaries have contributed to strengthening the accessibility and transparency of information on the EMFF;

transmit to the European Parliament and the Council, the results of this assessment;

depending on the outcome of this assessment, consider proposing amendments to the EMFF in order to further improve the accessibility and transparency of information on the EMFF.
