Mutual recognition of goods

25-04-2019

The revision of the regulation on mutual recognition of goods was announced in the 2015 Single Market Strategy. The Commission adopted its proposal in December 2017, which aimed to revise previous rules dating from 2008. This regulation aims to improve the rules governing the trade of goods in the single market. Intra-EU trade remains twice as big as extra-EU trade, and is rising constantly. This is, in large part, due to free movement of goods in the EU, which is based on either harmonised product ...

The revision of the regulation on mutual recognition of goods was announced in the 2015 Single Market Strategy. The Commission adopted its proposal in December 2017, which aimed to revise previous rules dating from 2008. This regulation aims to improve the rules governing the trade of goods in the single market. Intra-EU trade remains twice as big as extra-EU trade, and is rising constantly. This is, in large part, due to free movement of goods in the EU, which is based on either harmonised product rules at the EU level or, where there are no harmonised rules, the principle of mutual recognition under which goods lawfully marketed in one Member State may be sold in another Member State. The proposal addressed a number of shortcomings in the application of the mutual recognition principle. A provisional agreement between the co-legislators was reached on 22 November 2018. The text was adopted in plenary in February 2019. The new rules will improve collaboration among national authoritites and enhance the role of national product contact points. They will introduce a faster problem-solving procedure for disputes between companies and national authorities, as well as a new voluntary declaration to be filled in by economic operators to prove lawful marketing in an EU Member State. The new rules will apply from 19 April 2020. Fourth edition. The ‘EU Legislation in Progress’ briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

In der Europäischen Union sind verschiedene Institutionen, Agenturen und andere Einrichtungen (zusammen als „EU-Behörden“ bezeichnet) an der Vorbeugung und dem Kampf gegen Betrug zulasten des EU-Haushalts beteiligt. Diese EU-Behörden und die Maßnahmen, die sie durchführen – einschließlich Politikgestaltung, Überwachung sowie operativer Aufgaben – bilden ein mehrschichtiges Netz, an dem auch die Mitgliedstaaten und internationale Organisationen beteiligt sind.

In der Europäischen Union sind verschiedene Institutionen, Agenturen und andere Einrichtungen (zusammen als „EU-Behörden“ bezeichnet) an der Vorbeugung und dem Kampf gegen Betrug zulasten des EU-Haushalts beteiligt. Diese EU-Behörden und die Maßnahmen, die sie durchführen – einschließlich Politikgestaltung, Überwachung sowie operativer Aufgaben – bilden ein mehrschichtiges Netz, an dem auch die Mitgliedstaaten und internationale Organisationen beteiligt sind. Auf nationaler Ebene tragen die dort zuständigen Behörden dazu bei, betrügerisches Verhalten im Umgang mit Geldern der Europäischen Union aufzudecken, zu verfolgen und an die Kommission zu berichten. Gleichzeitig koordiniert eine Reihe internationaler Organisationen über verschiedene Länder und Rechtssysteme hinweg Bemühungen im Rahmen der Betrugsbekämpfung. Die vorliegende Analyse bietet einen Überblick über dieses Netz, mit einem Schwerpunkt auf dem institutionellen Rahmen der Europäischen Union.

Free movement of goods within the EU single market

19-01-2018

The free movement of goods is one of the four fundamental freedoms of the EU – together with services, capital and people – and a cornerstone of the single market. The rationale of an open market throughout the EU has always been to assist economic growth and competitiveness and therefore promote employment and prosperity. Legislation on the single market for goods (based mainly on Article 28 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, TFEU) aims at ensuring that products placed on the ...

Legislation on the single market for goods (based mainly on Article 28 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, TFEU) aims at ensuring that products placed on the EU market conform to high health, safety and environmental requirements. Once a product is sold legally in the EU, it should circulate without barriers to trade, with a minimum of administrative burden

On 7 October 2016, Morocco went to the polls for national parliamentary elections. This was the second time that Morocco had held national elections since the 'Arab Spring' had touched it in February 2011.

Since the 2011 public protests, a number of constitutional reforms, introduced by King Mohammed VI, have made significant changes to electoral and administrative law. Morocco's Islamic Justice and Development Party (PJD), which won the national elections in 2011, lost to the Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM) in municipal elections in 2015. On 7 October 2016, the PJD re-emerged as the winner, with PAM in second position. This is an updated version of a note published in June 2015.

CJEU rules sale of bitcoin exempt from VAT

28-11-2016

The legal framework for virtual currencies, such as bitcoin, is still far from clear. One controversial aspect is the status of bitcoins under tax law. In a 2015 judgment, the CJEU provided clarification on the status of bitcoins for the purposes of value added tax.

What next after Opinion 2/13 of the Court of Justice on the accession of the EU to the ECHR?

15-09-2016

Opinion 2/13 of the Court of Justice on the accession of the EU to the European Court of Human Rights highlights the requirements of the autonomy of EU law which may be called into question by accession. However not acceding does not truly guarantee this autonomy because Member States may be brought before the Court when they implement EU law. Under these conditions, both Article 6 TEU and the risks linked to the present situation call for a resumption of the negotiation process. Changes may be made ...

However not acceding does not truly guarantee this autonomy because Member States may be brought before the Court when they implement EU law. Under these conditions, both Article 6 TEU and the risks linked to the present situation call for a resumption of the negotiation process. Changes may be made to the draft agreement to meet the Court’s requirements, the current jurisdictional status of the CFSP being the most problematic factor.
