Statute for a European Foundation

27-06-2013

Public-benefit foundations make significant contributions to society in EU Member States (MS). In recent years many have expanded, to operate across borders. However, the lack of harmonised rules has caused problems of legal recognition in other MS and threatens to limit the potential value of the sector. The Commission has brought forward a proposal to tackle the issue.

Free movement of public documents

19-06-2013

The numbers of Europeans working, studying or living in another Member State has grown to over 12 million. As part of daily life they are often required to present formal documents in one Member State which have been issued in another. In most cases, these documents are not accepted automatically but must undergo a process of authentication which can be both time consuming and costly.  The traditional method of authentication, known as ""legalisation"", which involved a series of separate checks ...

The numbers of Europeans working, studying or living in another Member State has grown to over 12 million. As part of daily life they are often required to present formal documents in one Member State which have been issued in another. In most cases, these documents are not accepted automatically but must undergo a process of authentication which can be both time consuming and costly.  The traditional method of authentication, known as ""legalisation"", which involved a series of separate checks has been largely replaced by the streamlined process of Apostille. However this process only reduces administrative burden and does not remove it. Some provisions of EU law have attempted to address this burden but only on a sectoral basis. No horizontal measure currently exists. The Commission has been aiming to address the issue for several years. Following a 2011 consultation, a proposal for a regulation was published in 2013 which would remove both legalisation and Apostille formalities within the EU.

Review of the European Transparency Register

18-06-2013

The joint European Transparency Register, which came into effect in June 2011, builds on experience gained with the previous Parliament and Commission registers. The Register is designed as a “one-stop-shop” for interest representatives and an unofficial directory of "lobby contacts" with the EU institutions. By June 2013, around 5 700 organisations, mostly based in Brussels, had registered. The inter-institutional agreement which established the Register included a review clause; a process which ...

The inter-institutional agreement which established the Register included a review clause; a process which will start in June 2013. EP Vice-President Wieland and Commission Vice-President Šefčovič will take part in an inter-institutional working group. On 10 June the EP's Bureau decided how to proceed.

The EU Accession procedure

26-03-2013

The enlargement from a Community of six Member States (MS) to a Union of 27 is widely regarded as the EU’s greatest policy triumph. However even amongst those MS who have succeeded in joining, there have been significant differences in their experiences of the accession process. For current and potential candidate countries, completing the process is likely to prove even more challenging.

A law of administrative procedure for the EU

10-01-2013

The EU administration has expanded considerably in recent decades. Not only have the institutions themselves grown in size and stature but new agencies, offices and bodies have been established. Despite this, the EU currently has no comprehensive legislation on citizens' procedural rights in respect of the EU's administrative process.

A Statute for European Foundations

21-11-2012

Public-benefit foundations play an important role in many facets of society across the EU as well as having significant economic value. They have grown in number considerably in recent years, with many wishing to maximise private-sector support through operating in more than one Member State. Differences in legal and fiscal practices and a heavy administrative burden have however frustrated this aim. In February, the Commission published a proposal for a Statute for a European Foundation. Its aim ...

Public-benefit foundations play an important role in many facets of society across the EU as well as having significant economic value. They have grown in number considerably in recent years, with many wishing to maximise private-sector support through operating in more than one Member State. Differences in legal and fiscal practices and a heavy administrative burden have however frustrated this aim. In February, the Commission published a proposal for a Statute for a European Foundation. Its aim is to reduce costs and uncertainty and to boost foundations' profiles and funding potential via a "European label".

The Resale Right Directive

15-11-2012

In 2011 the global art and antique trade was valued at over €46 million, with the EU having more than a one-third share. More than half of this figure is made up of modern and contemporary art. However, in contrast to the general acceptance of copyright globally there are different views on how visual artists should be remunerated. Within the EU such artists benefit from a resale right.

Reforming the European Court of Human Rights: The Interlaken process

27-08-2012

The European Court of Human Rights has been in a constant state of reform since the permanent Court was established in Strasbourg in 1998. Its creation was a response to an increasing workload, a situation which has continued and worsened over the following 14 years.

European Transparency Register

30-05-2012

Efforts to ensure proper transparency in EU policy-making are a relatively recent phenomenon. Although the European Parliament (EP) has had a register of lobbyists for more than 15 years, registrants did not need to provide detailed information on themselves and their clients. An EP report on the Commission's proposed voluntary register in 2008 called for a more comprehensive approach: a common, mandatory register of all three institutions - Commission, Council and Parliament. Following extended ...

Efforts to ensure proper transparency in EU policy-making are a relatively recent phenomenon. Although the European Parliament (EP) has had a register of lobbyists for more than 15 years, registrants did not need to provide detailed information on themselves and their clients. An EP report on the Commission's proposed voluntary register in 2008 called for a more comprehensive approach: a common, mandatory register of all three institutions - Commission, Council and Parliament. Following extended negotiations in a high-level working party, the joint Commission/EP transparency register was launched in June 2011. In less than one year nearly 5 000 organisations or self-employed persons seeking an input into EU policy- making have registered through the online interface. Although it has been generally welcomed by stakeholders and interest groups, a number of criticisms and concerns have been expressed. Mandatory registration has remained a contentious issue. And whilst successive Council Presidencies have indicated interest in becoming more closely involved, uncertainty remains over the extent to which the Council might participate.
