EU certification of aviation security screening equipment

07-07-2019

In 2016, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation establishing a certification system for aviation security screening equipment. The proposal sought ‘to contribute to the proper functioning of the EU internal market and to increase the global competitiveness of the EU industry by establishing an EU certification system for aviation security equipment’. This system was to be based on EU type-approval and issuance of a certificate of conformity by manufacturers, which would have ...

In 2016, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation establishing a certification system for aviation security screening equipment. The proposal sought ‘to contribute to the proper functioning of the EU internal market and to increase the global competitiveness of the EU industry by establishing an EU certification system for aviation security equipment’. This system was to be based on EU type-approval and issuance of a certificate of conformity by manufacturers, which would have been valid in all Member States, according to the principle of mutual recognition. Progress on the proposal rapidly reached a stalemate. Consequently, in its 2019 work programme, the Commission announced its intention to withdraw the proposal, noting that there was a common understanding that an EU certification system would be better reached by amending existing implementing legislation based on Regulation (EC) No 300/2008 on common rules in the field of civil aviation security. The proposal was formally withdrawn on 21 June 2019. Second edition. The ‘EU Legislation in Progress’ briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

EU fertilising products

26-06-2019

Fertilising products are used to improve plant growth, mainly in agriculture, enabling higher crop yields. However, they are associated with some challenges as regards security of supply, the environment and health. Although the 2003 Fertilisers Regulation, which aimed at ensuring an internal market in fertilisers, has been effective, it mainly addresses mineral fertilisers and deters the introduction of new types of fertilisers. In March 2016, the Commission put forward a legislative proposal on ...

Fertilising products are used to improve plant growth, mainly in agriculture, enabling higher crop yields. However, they are associated with some challenges as regards security of supply, the environment and health. Although the 2003 Fertilisers Regulation, which aimed at ensuring an internal market in fertilisers, has been effective, it mainly addresses mineral fertilisers and deters the introduction of new types of fertilisers. In March 2016, the Commission put forward a legislative proposal on fertilising products, as announced in the circular economy action plan. The proposal modernises the conformity assessment and market surveillance in line with the ‘new legislative framework’ for product legislation, covers a wider range of fertilising products (including those manufactured from secondary raw materials), and sets limits for the presence of heavy metals and contaminants in fertilising products. After completion of the legislative procedure, the final act was signed on 5 June 2019. The regulation will apply in full from 16 July 2022.

Comercialización de los productos fertilizantes con el marcado CE

20-03-2019

En marzo de 2016 la Comisión Europea presentó una propuesta sobre productos fertilizantes que ampliaría el ámbito de la legislación existente, en particular para incluir fertilizantes orgánicos y producidos a partir de residuos, y establecería límites de metales pesados y contaminantes en los productos fertilizantes.

Consumer sale of goods

12-03-2018

On 22 February 2018, the European Parliament's Committee for the Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) adopted its report on the Commission proposal for a new directive on the consumer sale of goods. The Commission's original proposal, dating from 2015, was replaced on 31 October 2017 by an amended one which intends to replace the existing Consumer Sales Directive dating from 1999 entirely, instead of regulating only online and other distance contracts as had originally been planned.

On 22 February 2018, the European Parliament's Committee for the Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) adopted its report on the Commission proposal for a new directive on the consumer sale of goods. The Commission's original proposal, dating from 2015, was replaced on 31 October 2017 by an amended one which intends to replace the existing Consumer Sales Directive dating from 1999 entirely, instead of regulating only online and other distance contracts as had originally been planned. By contrast to the 1999 Consumer Sales Directive, the Commission's proposal would introduce a maximum-harmonisation approach, meaning that EU Member States could no longer introduce a higher level of consumer protection than set in the directive.

This European Implementation Assessment (EIA) has been provided to accompany the work of the European Parliament's Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety in scrutinising the implementation of the directive establishing a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products ('Ecodesign Directive'). The EIA consists of an opening analysis and two briefing papers. The opening analysis, prepared in-house by the Ex-Post Evaluation Unit within EPRS, situates the directive in the EU policy context, provides key information on implementation of the directive and presents opinions of selected stakeholders on implementation. The paper contains also short overview of consumers' opinions and behaviour. Input to the assessment was received from CPMC SPRL and from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, both in the form of briefing papers: – the first paper gathers the opinions of EU-level and national stakeholders on successes in, failures of and challenges to the implementation of the directive and the underlying reasons. Experts from seven Member States were interviewed: Belgium, Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom, Poland, Portugal and Finland. These interviews are complemented by a literature review of available studies, reports and position papers; – the second paper is based on three elements. The first part presents an analysis of the Ecodesign Directive, ecodesign working plans and related regulations, the second is based on an analysis of the scientific articles discussing the application of the directive to specific product groups and the third presents the results of the on-line surveys evaluating the application of the regulations of the directive for selected product groups.

Grandes desafios para el turismo de la Union y respuestas politicas

El turismo, que es la tercera actividad económica más importante de la Unión, reviste una importancia considerable como fuente de crecimiento económico, desarrollo regional y empleo. A pesar de que, durante los últimos años, la crisis económica le ha afectado negativamente, el turismo ha demostrado ser resiliente, como atestigua el creciente número de visitantes que ha recibido la Unión a lo largo de los años. No obstante, el sector encara una serie de desafíos y una creciente competencia, en particular de destinos emergentes no europeos, cuya cuota del mercado turístico mundial está aumentando gradualmente. Debido a su naturaleza transversal, al turismo le afectan diversas políticas, incluidas las políticas en materia de transporte, medio ambiente, protección de los consumidores y desarrollo regional. No siempre es fácil coordinar estas políticas. Desde la entrada en vigor del Tratado de Lisboa en 2009, el Tratado de Funcionamiento de la Unión Europea (TFUE) permite a la Unión apoyar, coordinar o complementar las acciones de los Estados miembros en este ámbito. No obstante, este avance jurídico no ha dado un gran impulso a la elaboración de políticas a escala de la Unión en el sector del turismo. Si bien la legislación de la Unión ha cubierto progresivamente una serie de ámbitos en los que la Unión tiene competencias exclusivas o compartidas con los Estados miembros (como transporte, seguridad en el transporte y derechos de los pasajeros), la política turística sigue estando fundamentalmente regulada a escala nacional. En los últimos años, la Comisión Europea ha presentado dos estrategias sobre el turismo: «Europa, primer destino turístico del mundo: un nuevo marco político para el turismo europeo» (2010), en la que fija las prioridades y acciones de la Unión con relación al sector y «Una estrategia europea para un mayor crecimiento y empleo en el turismo costero y marítimo» (2014). En una Resolución de 2011, el Parlamento realizó una serie de sugerencias para lograr un turismo competitivo, moderno y sostenible. En 2015, el Parlamento se congratuló por la estrategia de 2014 de la Comisión Europea y pidió la adopción de una serie de iniciativas más para asegurar su aplicación en términos reales.

Cableway installations: Proposal for a new regulation

31-05-2016

Around 17 500 cableway installations currently exist in western Europe and the Alps, representing 60% of the global total. European industry has generally held a dominant position in the global cableway installations market, with the ski industry remaining the primary market for cableway technology. The new regulation covering the European Economic Area is to replace Directive 2000/9/EC relating to cableway installations designed to carry persons.

Around 17 500 cableway installations currently exist in western Europe and the Alps, representing 60% of the global total. European industry has generally held a dominant position in the global cableway installations market, with the ski industry remaining the primary market for cableway technology. The new regulation covering the European Economic Area is to replace Directive 2000/9/EC relating to cableway installations designed to carry persons. Its aim is to simplify the current rules, align them with the European Union New Legislative Framework, and address some problems experienced in implementing the Directive 2000/9/EC. Given its predominantly technical nature, the new regulation was developed with input from experts via targeted consultations. Commission's impact assessment revealed a broad consensus among Member States, manufacturers, notified bodies and stakeholders regarding the need to simplify and clarify the current rules. Following approval by both Parliament and Council, Regulation 2016/424 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union, entering into force on 20 April 2016. This updates the previous version, of January 2016: PE 573.895.
