Die Funktion von Öko-Label unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des Bio-Siegels (German Edition)
Member States may choose to extend the new restriction on the right of rebate to goods other than immovable property. The second paragraph of Art. However, Art. In the past, even a minimal taxed use was sufficient to allow a full and immediate deduction of the input VAT.
The subsequent taxation of the private use under Art. Under the new rules, a taxed business use of e. The questions seem to reflect certain concerns but, and although it is true that Member States now dispose of the freedom to include all types of business assets, the Commission is not of the opinion that these rules would lead to a breach of equality or proportionality.
Betreft: Begroting budgetlijn 15 05 55; Jeugd in actie. In de toelichting worden verscheidene doelstellingen uiteengezet, waaronder de ontwikkeling van het Europees burgerschap, het versterken van solidariteitsbesef en inspelen op speciale behoeften van jongeren in landen van het EU nabuurschapsbeleid. Hoe wordt de doeltreffendheid en doelmatigheid van projecten met dergelijke vage doelstellingen gemeten en aangetoond? Twee van de algemene doelstellingen van dat programma zijn de bevordering van actief burgerschap van jongeren in het algemeen en van hun Europees burgerschap in het bijzonder, en de ontwikkeling van de solidariteit en de bevordering van de verdraagzaamheid onder jongeren, vooral met het oog op de versterking van de sociale samenhang van de Europese Unie.
In deze omstandigheden heeft de Commissie niet het voornemen de uitvoering van een door de wetgever aangenomen programma op de helling te zetten. De Commissie is het er niet mee eens dat het onmogelijk zou zijn te meten of een bepaalde actie heeft bijgedragen tot de ontwikkeling van de solidariteitszin. If not, why not? Does the Commission agree with the PVV that citizenship can only be seen in the context of sovereign countries and, what is more, cannot be imposed on people by the EU?
How is the effectiveness and efficiency of projects with such vague aims measured and demonstrated? Eine Niederlassung von Lebewesen wildlebender Art ist somit unwahrscheinlich. The various Annexes of the FFH Directive provide a precise list of which areas and species are to be protected. A business in my constituency is looking to develop a site within the local authority area. In this case, the area is a farmed meadow located right on the edge of the local authority and on a busy country road.
In addition, the local authority would be willing to expand the area in a different direction. Colonisation by wild species is therefore unlikely. How can we proceed in this case with a minimum of red tape, so as to implement this project? In the Commission announced that it was promoting a research study aimed at developing a multi-dimensional global university ranking.
The Commission pointed out the three main characteristics of this new ranking tool: its multi-dimensional nature, its transparency and its global orientation. However, the classification of both public and private institutions is unavoidable, putting private institutions in higher positions than public institutions.
One of the strengths of European higher education is its diversity. The main responsibility for achieving excellence rests with Member States and education institutions themselves. The Commission's role is to support higher education institutions, including by providing tools which enable them to assess their performance and more generally to support the Member States via the actions presented in the above Modernisation Agenda.
Public and private institutions must pursue excellence in terms of their own priorities; it is neither a Commission task nor a Commission goal to ensure that either public or private institutions reach the highest positions in the ranking, but rather that the performance of all should become more transparent. The Commission agrees that is it important to ensure the quality, transparency and independence of the ranking system and to protect it from any private interest.
That is why the ranking will be run by an independent body, overseen by an advisory board consisting of relevant stakeholders and the Commission to ensure this. First results will be published end , via a project funded by the European Commission. The wind farms that have been sprouting up in great numbers recently are causing increasing controversy. In recent years, a growing number of wind farms have also been established in Poland. However, the lack of legal regulations on the distance of wind farms from buildings and households allows wind farms to develop in an uncontrolled way, devoid of rules on location.
Constructing wind farms in Poland often involves abuses, breaking the law and a lack of respect for the landscape, environment and citizens. Local authorities come under pressure from investors and are tempted by easy budgetary revenue, even at the cost of local development strategy. However, the worst is that this often happens without the knowledge of any test results regarding the potential impact of the undertaking. If so, with which precise regulations? If an EIA is carried out it has to assess, amongst others things, the effects of a project on human beings, fauna, flora, and landscape.
Consultation with the public is a key feature of environmental assessment procedures. The Commission has not issued minimum standards with regard to wind farms and environment as each project has to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. The Commission is not aware of any work specifically on the impact of wind farms on human health.
On the basis of the practical conclusions of the above actions, does the Commission expect to take any new initiatives in this sector? Grant agreements were signed at the outset of a selection procedure organised as part of an open call for proposals which was open to all Member States. All relevant stakeholders were encouraged to participate. No organisations based in Greece formed part of any of the three successful project networks.
The results of these projects, co-financed via Preparatory Actions in the field of Sport, will be disseminated by the leading organisations. The projects have thus far demonstrated the relevance of multi-actor networks — including but not limited to sports organisations — pioneering the development of new approaches to doping prevention. These licensed environmental verifiers can be either legal or natural persons.
Thus the two legislative instruments deal with two distinctly different situations. The draft Commission Regulation introduces the term 'certification of verifiers' to underline this difference and avoid any potential misunderstanding. Furthermore, mutual recognition of verifiers is a key element of the draft Commission Regulation. To ensure the full and effective realisation of the mutual recognition of all verifiers, it introduces a system for the certification of verifiers that provides the same guarantees as the one applicable to the accreditation of verifiers.
To that end, the draft Commission Regulation requires that the Member State, which chooses to make use of the certification option, appoints a national authority and supplies all supplementary evidence necessary to the Commission and the other Member States as proof that that national authority fulfills the same requirements as a national accreditation body. In case of an incorrect verification, who assumes the responsibility for consequences? The draft Commission Regulation aims to set up a detailed and high-quality process for the verification of greenhouse gas emission reports and tonne-kilometre reports submitted by an operator or aircraft operator.
That verification process involves, notably, the correct and effective reporting of greenhouse gas emissions; the technical skills of the verifiers; the continuous improvement of internal processes by verifiers, notably as for their independence and impartiality. The draft Commission Regulation addresses the reliability of verification for users and recalls that the process of verifying emission reports shall be an effective and reliable tool in support of quality assurance and quality control procedures.
In the event of an incorrect verification, the question of responsibility should be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Tale iniziativa potrebbe rientrare tra quelle finanziate con i progetti pilota dell'Unione europea? I lavori relativi alla campagna sono iniziati nel gennaio The city administration in Strasbourg has decided to fund a project that prescribes hours of cycling to those who may derive health benefits from it. Considering the environmental, educational and medical aims of the project, does it intend to dedicate appropriate funding to projects that focus on raising awareness of sustainable transport, particularly if it can benefit the health of citizens, as in the case of bicycles?
For individual projects to be selected for funding, however, they need to fulfill all the criteria described in the work plans adopted each year by the Commission and selected in terms of quality by external evaluators in a competitive process. The work programme will be adopted by the end of The funding of pilot projects is possible if included on a list of pilot projects approved by the Parliament as part of the annual budgetary procedure. Raddoppiare il valore del commercio elettronico europeo entro il in sedici mosse.
E mentre l'e-commerce decolla in tutto il mondo, con cifre quasi record raggiunte durante il periodo natalizio, l'Europa inizia a preoccuparsi della concorrenza. Il leader del settore sembra essere diventato la Cina, con miliardi di dollari in transazioni, ed entro il pare che gli acquisti via Internet possano eguagliare, se non superare, quelli effettuati fisicamente in negozio. Online shopping is a continually growing market, although in Italy it is still relegated to a niche role.
And while e-commerce is taking off around the world, with near record numbers reached during the Christmas period, Europe has begun to worry about the competition. How it intends to protect consumers with regard to the security of payments, including shipping logistics and guarantees that the purchased product matches the product advertised on the Internet;. How it intends to counterbalance the online sales market in an economy which is likely to become the exclusive preserve of Asia. La Commission rendra publiques ses conclusions d'ici la fin du mois de juillet La crisi che si protrae oramai dal sta mettendo in ginocchio molte imprese.
Molti giovani imprenditori poi, nel momento in cui costituiscono un'impresa, non possiedono un'adeguata esperienza nella gestione aziendale e mancano di competenze cruciali per la buona riuscita del loro progetto imprenditoriale. Una valutazione intermedia dell'azione preparatoria — realizzata peraltro ad uno stadio precoce dell'azione e quindi fondata su dati limitati — fornisce del pari proiezioni interessanti in termini di creazione di posti di lavoro.
The crisis that has been dragging on since is bringing many companies to their knees. The danger is that Italy, like many other Member States, could lose an entire generation of entrepreneurs. This is happening because the business world is becoming increasingly competitive and the difficult economic situation is even reducing the more established areas of industry, thereby discouraging many young people with business ideas, but not the strength, financial or otherwise, to realise them. Furthermore, when setting up a company, many young entrepreneurs lack sufficient experience of business administration and the crucial skills needed to make their project a success.
These shortcomings, together with the fact that the companies created mostly only operate at national level, considerably limit their growth. To resolve the problem, the European Commission has created the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme, to help entrepreneurs to gain important skills and expand their activities at European level. In view of the above, can the Commission say how many young people have been able to take advantage of this programme since its inception? Can it also state the main objectives of the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme?
Is it possible to indicate the nature and quantity of the results achieved by European SMEs managed by young people who have been able to make good use of the idea? Oggetto: Possibili fondi per l'Associazione Polje. L'Associazione Polje si occupa ogni anno, all'interno della dolina, oltre che dell'organizzazione di visite guidate, anche di manifestazioni culturali, come spettacoli teatrali e concerti. Since it has been entrusted with responsibility for managing the Pulo by the Province of Bari, the organisation that owns the site, and is working to enhance its value, ensuring that it is used in a manner that is respectful to the environment and its historic and archaeological heritage.
The Pulo in Molfetta is interesting not only from an archaeological and geological point of view but also — and no less importantly — for its natural value, which makes this relatively small site extremely important in terms of biodiversity both for its flora and fauna. Every year, the Polje Consortium Association organises guided tours and cultural initiatives in the sinkhole, including theatrical performances and concerts.
Is it aware of the activities and projects carried out by the Polje Consortium Association? Given the cultural, historic and archaeological objectives of the association, could the Polje Consortium benefit from European funding for its activities? La distanza dal target tende quindi a ridursi per l'Italia, arrivata a soltanto 0,3 punti percentuali al di sotto della soglia. La Commissione incentiva l'elaborazione di strategie nazionali di ricerca e di innovazione che precisino orientamenti tematici chiari e ben individuati.
La Commissione rende pubblici. At this historic moment, innovation is a fundamental strategy for driving mature economies towards recovery so that they may finally emerge from the difficult crisis which has had a negative impact on investments and competition. In Italy, in , 1. The distance from the target is therefore tending to decrease in Italy, which is now just 0. Does the Commission have data concerning which sectors attract most investment from Member States? This directive requires Member States to implement return, collection and recovery systems in order to achieve recovery and recycling objectives.
However, the directive does not address the degree to which consumer food packaging is filled. That is, there is no regulation concerning the amount of empty space that such packaging may contain. Many food products on sale in retail outlets are packaged in such a way that a considerable proportion of the packaging is empty space, which increases packaging waste and the logistical costs of the product.
Furthermore, it misleads consumers, who often choose a larger product, regardless of whether there is a difference in the amount of content within the packaging. If EU legislation defined a minimum degree of filling for consumer packaging, producers would have no reason to waste resources on manufacturing oversized packaging and it would be easier for consumers to compare the amount of product contained within the packaging.
Indeed, the Commission stated in its Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe, which was published last year, that the Member States and the Commission intended to investigate measures for optimising the resource efficiency of packaging from onwards. Does the Commission intend to consider measures, in this or in any other regard, by which the degree of filling of consumer packaging could be increased?
One of these requirements is that packaging weight and volume must be reduced to the minimum necessary for safety, hygiene and consumer acceptance of the packaged product. The Commission does not currently have the intention to propose further measures to increase the degree of filing of packaging. Oggetto: Itinerario culturale di Santiago de Compostela. La Commissione non prevede di proporre prossimamente misure specifiche in materia. Witness statements revealed that the young man had been swimming for an hour before drowning and that the rescue services arrived too late.
It appears that the route is known for other accidents and deaths that have occurred there in the past as a result of a failure to signpost areas that are dangerous due to changeable weather conditions and currents. The transfer of corpses in Europe is subject to the Council of Europe Agreement, which is designed to simplify the administrative formalities for transferring remains between the contracting parties.
Spain has signed the agreement in and ratification and entry into force of the agreement took place in Italy has not signed the agreement so far. The Commission does not plan to propose any specific measures on this subject in the immediate future. Even more interesting, though, is what cannot be found in the answers. Has the Commission ever in fact found a single case of moral harassment? If so, how many cases has it found?
If not, it would appear to believe that moral harassment simply cannot exist within the Commission. We may also be forced to draw the conclusion that its policy to combat moral harassment is of no use, since it is apparently unable to detect such a phenomenon. What is the practical difference between moral harassment and inappropriate behaviour? Out of the 28 administrative investigations mentioned above, can the Commission publish the number of cases in which the behaviour complained about was considered to be inappropriate behaviour?
What were the actual consequences for the perpetrators and victims e. Since the Commission has a comprehensive anti-harassment policy in place, it does not deem it justified to carry out surveys on this specific area of HR policy. To the best of the Commission's knowledge, other institutions do not carry out such detailed surveys.
The total amount of cases refers to relational problems as a whole. Support and assistance is provided in all cases of relational problems, be they harassment or not. According to the Staff Regulations, psychological harassment occurs when four conditions are cumulatively met. Out of 28 administrative investigations opened between and for allegations of psychological harassment, 15 cases were closed without follow-up.
In five cases, a sanction for inappropriate conduct was taken. Three cases were transmitted to other competent services for follow-up measures. Five investigations have not yet led to a final decision by the Appointing Authority. Risposta congiunta di Catherine Ashton a nome della Commissione. Tal foi feito em 2 de maio de North Korea is planning to launch a rocket to assert the authority of Kim Jong-un. Various experts have already stressed the possibility that the launch will fail and that, instead of falling into the Yellow Sea or the Pacific, the rocket may change course, with all the resulting consequences.
The occasion will be marked by a ballistic launch, described by the Korean media as the launch of a satellite for meteorological observations. Several foreign journalists have been invited to the event and welcomed at the Soahe satellite station, but not even they are able to pinpoint exactly what it is: The military technology used is the same both for predicting the weather and attaching a nuclear warhead to the missile.
Whether she is informed of the matter and what other information she can provide, particularly on whether these are experiments that foreshadow future nuclear tests? These additional designations are already included in the list of EU autonomous designations. Oggetto: Macellazioni rituali e benessere degli animali.
Ritiene che la ricerca Dialrel abbia prodotto risultati positivi in ordine al prevalere o meno degli interessi degli animali nella macellazione? Non ritiene che sia necessaria una normativa applicabile in tutti gli Stati dell'Unione che omologhi i provvedimenti in materia di macellazione rituale? La Commissione ritiene che le disposizioni UE in tema di protezione degli animali al momento della macellazione o dell'abbattimento.
Il progetto di ricerca DIALREL ha contribuito a realizzare progressi nel campo della macellazione rituale, in particolare istituendo un dialogo tra le parti interessate. La Commissione ha diffuso questi risultati agli Stati membri. Last year in the Netherlands, a measure was adopted, tabled by both the government and the opposition, which bans the slaughter of animals using ritual methods that exclude the use of anaesthetics or stunning systems. A similar ban has also been in force for some time in other European countries, such as Sweden and Austria, whereas in other Member States, such as Italy, the law tolerates ritual slaughter.
The law, tabled by a cross-party group, has ignited the debate between the defenders of animal rights and the defenders of religious freedom. Considering the protocol annexed to the EC treaty on the protection and welfare of animals, and taking into account the need to respect religious rites and cultural traditions, does the Commission not believe that animals should nevertheless be stunned prior to slaughter?
Does it also not believe that failing to implement the protocol, in addition to failing to respect the rights of animals, leads to an exacerbation of the differences between the various countries and different cultures? Does it believe that the Dialrel research has produced positive results with regard to allowing the interests of animals to prevail when slaughtered? Is it aware of the health consequences for people who consume meat from animals that have been exposed to enormous rushes of adrenaline?
The DIALREL research project has contributed to make progress in the field of ritual slaughter in particular by establishing a dialogue between stakeholders. The Commission has publicised these results to the Member States. Stress experienced by animals shortly before or during slaughter may result in abnormal meat quality with associated reduced shelf life, but does not affect the safety of the meat.
Betreft: Mogelijke schadelijke gevolgen van e chemische verbinding 4-methylimidazole in de procedure van voedsel en dranken. Frisdrankproducenten Coca-Cola en Pepsi gebruiken karamel om hun frisdranken te kleuren. Bij de productie van de als kleurstof toegevoegde karamel zou de chemische verbinding 4-methylimidazole 4-MEI ontstaan.
Coca-Cola en Pepsi hebben als gevolg hiervan het recept voor hun frisdranken aangepast door de hoeveelheid 4-MEI te verlagen. Het panel lette bij de beoordeling ook specifiek op uit de productie van deze karamelkleurstoffen voortkomende bijproducten, zoals 4-MEI in Ec en Ed. Toen werd aangeraden om de niveaus van deze bijproducten zo laag te houden als technologisch mogelijk.
Overweegt de Commissie om nader onderzoek te doen naar de mogelijke schadelijke gevolgen van de chemische verbinding 4-methylimidazole in de productie van voedsel en dranken? Soft drinks producers Coca-Cola and Pepsi use caramel to add colour to their soft drinks. On the basis of this study, the State of California has introduced a law which obliges Coca-Cola and Pepsi to place a health warning on their cans. As a result of this, Coca-Cola and Pepsi have changed the recipe of their soft drinks by lowering the quantity of 4-MEI.
The panel paid particular attention during the assessment to the by-products which form during the production of these caramel colourings, such as 4-MEI in Ec and Ed. It was recommended then that the levels of these by-products should be kept as low as technologically feasible. Is the Commission contemplating conducting more detailed research into the possible damaging effects of the chemical compound 4-methylimidazole formed during the production of food and drinks? De sancties moeten doeltreffend, evenredig en afschrikkend zijn. These penalties should be effective, proportionate and dissuasive.
Im Rahmen einer von Dr. The government of Kosovo is determined to build, with the support of the World Bank, a new lignite-based power plant in order to secure its energy demands. A governmental committee has prequalified four private investors and is waiting for a Partial Risk Guarantee to be issued by the World Bank. The New Kosovo Power Plant is part of a comprehensive energy strategy including the rehabilitation of the Kosovo B plant, closure of Kosovo A and developing energy efficiency and renewable energies. The Commission fully subscribes to this analysis.
The project constitutes the best option for the earliest closure of Kosovo A, which is strongly supported by the Commission and can only be implemented once replacement generation capacity is secured. The Commission, with the Energy Community Secretariat, will scrupulously monitor that Kosovo meets its commitments and ensure the new private power company will not abuse its position.
The Commission is supporting the Energy Regulatory Office and the Competition Authority to enforce energy sector competition rules. According to the IMF, policies aimed at reducing debt on the basis of the assets of a household and debt servicing payments linked to income could be a solution that would not involve burdens on economic activity. It also considers such strategies to be particularly important for economies with currently limited potential for expansive macroeconomic policies and where the fiscal sector has already received support from the state. Is it aware of the report in question?
What is its position on the need for carrying out a restructuring of housing loans in Member States, in particular in those Member States which have serious fiscal problems and are in recession? The substantial deleveraging currently observed across different sectors reflects corrections of debt levels towards more sustainable positions on the internal as well as the external side of the economy. The Commission therefore agrees that household deleveraging is a key element to be considered, however not in isolation, but alongside efforts to stabilise the banking system and provide for sound fiscal positions.
Indeed, dealing with these challenges are priorities in the overall strategy to respond to the crises and in terms of surveillance the Stability and Growth Pact and the Macroeconomic Imbalance Procedure are particularly pertinent in this context. The IMF's World Economic Outlook describes alternative macroeconomic policies to help households deal with their excessive debt. However, it also shows that not all efforts to restructure household debt were equally successful in the past.
Relieving house holds of their excessive debt should be assessed on a case by case basis and it is by no means the right tool for all countries and in all circumstances. Indeed, the RIHS delegation sought his opinion because he is a prominent spiritual leader whose views on Islam are seen as immensely authoritative. As such, it is possible to interpret his comments to the organisation as inciting religious intolerance and hatred, and as encouraging terrorist ideology on the Arabian Peninsula.
And we recognise the importance of our working with [third countries] but within the context too of addressing all forms of discrimination against those who have faith […] Working with countries with whom we need to establish strong relations in order to support our objectives but also in support of our views, values and beliefs. The EU will continue to raise these issues with its Gulf interlocutors, making full use of the opportunities at its disposal. No es la primera vez que se arresta a Halil Savda por cuestiones de conciencia.
Considerando que:. Am In Anbetracht der Tatsache, dass. Halil Savda wurde am Betreft: Vrijlating van de Turkse dienstweigeraar op grond van gewetensbezwaren en mensenrechtenactivist Halil Savda. Wat zal zij doen om de rechten van dienstweigeraars op grond van gewetensbezwaren in Turkije te vrijwaren en de vrijlating van Halil Savda te bewerkstelligen? De Commissie heeft de zaak met de Turkse autoriteiten besproken en volgt deze nauwlettend.
This is not the first time that Halil Savda has been imprisoned for reasons of conscience. Considering that:. What will it do to safeguard the rights of conscientious objectors in Turkey and secure the release of Halil Savda? Oggetto: Finanziamento occulto da parte della BCE alle case automobilistiche. Volkswagen Financial Services, braccio finanziario della casa madre automobilistica Volkswagen, ha partecipato all'asta di febbraio indetta dalla BCE e ha preso in prestito 2 miliardi di euro. L'onorevole parlamentare solleva la questione delle possibili ripercussioni che un prestito di 2 miliardi di EUR concesso dalla Banca centrale europea BCE a Volkswagen Financial Services, braccio finanziario del gruppo Volkswagen, potrebbe avere sulla concorrenza tra i produttori di autovetture.
Al momento la Commissione non dispone di informazioni dettagliate su come Volkswagen abbia effettivamente utilizzato il prestito e non sa se altri produttori di automobili abbiano ottenuto finanziamenti dalla BCE. Since, to all intents and purposes, it is a bank, it had the power to do so, but it has used these borrowings to lend money to customers to purchase new vehicles at interest rates that are lower than the financial market. This appears to be a masked subsidy of the automotive sector, which could distort internal competition. The Honourable Member raises the issue of the possible impact on competition between carmakers of a two billion loan granted by the European Central Bank ECB to Volkswagen Financial Services, the financing arm of the Volkswagen group.
The Commission has no detailed information at this stage on how the money was indeed used by Volkswagen and whether other car manufacturers also borrowed funds from the ECB. Oggetto: Il patrimonio culturale europeo — quale ruolo nel futuro programma Horizon Tale decisione potrebbe avere conseguenze molto negative, dato che verrebbe minata alla base la strategia di supporto alla conservazione del patrimonio culturale europeo, in contraddizione rispetto a quelle che sono alcune decisioni della stessa Commissione in merito a questo tema.
Come pensa di colmare tale lacuna riconoscendo a livello trasversale e multidisciplinare l'importanza del patrimonio culturale europeo all'interno delle diverse sfide sociali contenute nella proposta legislativa Horizon ? La Commissione annette grande importanza al sostegno alla ricerca in materia di patrimonio culturale in tutte le sue forme. In recent years the European Union has shown its desire to support and promote the protection of European cultural heritage meaning tangible and intangible assets as a whole , placing a strong priority on the sector.
The protection of cultural heritage on an EU level must not exclude the scientific community, since this would jeopardise the sustainability of the interventions and investments of monetary and human resources committed up to now. The Commission has recently stated on more than one occasion that cultural heritage will be covered within the Fifth Societal Challenge climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials and the Sixth Societal Challenge inclusive, innovative and secure societies.
However, relegating the protection of cultural heritage to climatic aspects based on the connection with the energy efficiency of the thousands of historic buildings in Europe , the nanotechnology, materials and tourism industries and to ICT, seems too simplistic. The Commission attaches a high importance to support research related to cultural heritage in all its forms. It is expected that Horizon will continue promoting the multi-disciplinary and cross-cutting aspect of cultural heritage research. O artigo 2. Over recent years, the criteria for defining SMEs have been under discussion, with many specialists believing that the criteria should change with economic developments.
Is it considering reviewing the current classification for SMEs, as called for by various specialists and the strategic studies that have been produced? The Commission carries out a regular monitoring of the implementation of the SME definition. Since its entry into force in , the Commission has carried out two evaluations and prepared respective implementation reports in and after consultation of Member States, business organisations and other stakeholders.
In both reports, the Commission concluded that the definition was being applied without any notable difficulties. A new review of the SME definition is being performed in , and the Commission has signed a contract with an external consultant to carry out an independent evaluation. The evaluation will take into account general economic developments as well as specific issues related to the implementation of the definition. The evaluation may not necessarily translate into a revision of the definition, as it was not the case at the time of previous evaluations in and Any changes may be introduced only after obtaining solid evidence and after having weighed their impact on the administrative burden for enterprises, since the stability of the SME definition is a key aspect of legal certainty for enterprises.
Oggetto: Impegni imposti dalla Commissione a fronte della concessione di aiuti di Stato all'aviazione. L'articolo , paragrafo 3, del trattato sul funzionamento dell'Unione Europea impone agli Stati membri di informare tempestivamente la Commissione in merito ai progetti diretti a istituire o modificare aiuti. L'articolo dispone inoltre che tutti gli aiuti di Stato siano comunicati e valutati dalla Commissione, prima dell'adozione delle misure previste.
In caso di dubbio, tuttavia, la Commissione incoraggia gli Stati membri, per ragioni di certezza del diritto, a notificare le misure statali previste prima della loro attuazione. In occasione di un'eventuale denuncia in merito alle misure statali a favore di una determinata impresa o di un determinato settore indipendentemente dall'avvenuta notifica , la Commissione procede di norma ad un'indagine.
Whereas such undertakings can include the sale of assets, and the reduction of capacity or presence on the market and, therefore, a possible reduction in staff, in order to prevent unjustified distortions of competition;. Whereas the Court of Justice of the European Union has consistently held that the use of state aid — whether in the form of capital increases or of loan guarantees — merely to fund the modernisation of the beneficiary company or to maintain its competitive position or to expand its fleet is explicitly forbidden:.
It also requires all state aid measures to be notified and assessed by the Commission before the envisaged measures are implemented. However, the state may participate in the economy on the same terms and conditions of a market economy investor expecting a return on his investment. In other words, state measures in favour of a company, which are granted on the same commercial terms and conditions as a market economy investor would accept, do not require notification, as such measures are not deemed to involve state aid.
With reference to the example brought forward by the Honourable Member, if a guarantee granted by a Member State falls under one of the abovementioned exceptions, an ex-ante notification is not necessary. However, in case of doubt, the Commission encourages Member States to notify the intended state measures before their implementation for reasons of legal certainty. The Commission will then assess the potential distortion of competition caused by any state aid element before the implementation of the measures. In cases where the Commission receives a complaint concerning state measures regardless of whether they are notified or non-notified in favour of a certain company or a certain sector, it will normally investigate the matter.
El jueves 29 de marzo, durante las acciones organizadas de la huelga general, los Mossos d'Esquadra detuvieron a una cincuentena de personas, entre ellas a tres estudiantes universitarios, quienes ni son delincuentes ni tienen antecedentes policiales. They were arrested and taken to the Les Corts police station in Barcelona. They were then each transferred to separate prison facilities, where they were held in temporary pre-trial detention without bail.
They are accused of causing a public disturbance, damaging public property and assaulting police officers, among other offences. They are being held under preventive arrest to ensure their availability to the court and to prevent them from supposedly reoffending. This clearly violates the presumption of innocence and the conditions under which preventive detention may be ordered. In that matter it is thus for Member States alone to ensure that their obligations regarding fundamental rights — as resulting from international agreements and from their internal legislation — are respected.
Therefore, the Commission is not in a position to comment further on the fundamental rights issues raised by the question of the Honourable Member. The Commission is reflecting on ways to strengthen mutual trust and mutual recognition across the Union in the area of detention, within the limits of EU competence. The Commission received many replies from Member States as well as from other stakeholders and will analyse all responses and conduct all necessary research to assess whether any action is required at the European level.
Dieses Waldgebiet ist aber ein wichtiger Lebensraum der selten gewordenen Orang-Utans. Wenn ja, innerhalb welcher Frist? According to press reports, the Tripa peat swamp forest on the west coast of Sumatra Indonesia has been burning for some time. According to environmental protection organisations, the fires which have over centres were started by people in order to set up palm oil plantations.
However, this forest area is an important habitat for the increasingly rare orangutan. The destruction of their habitat robs not only them but also other greatly reduced populations, such as rhinoceros and elephants, of their natural home. Is the Commission aware of the systematic destruction of the rain forest for the purpose of creating plantations on Sumatra?
In particular, does Indonesia receive special environmental or agricultural support from EU budgets? Is the Commission considering steps to save the rain forest on Sumatra? If so, what is the timescale involved? The Commission is aware of the ongoing deforestation in Sumatra associated with plantation development; indeed through its analysis of remote sensing information the Commission's Joint Research Centre has contributed to a greater understanding of the extent and dynamics of such deforestation in South-East Asia. The main areas of support are in the fields of environment, governance and civil society capacity-building, education and regional integration.
While there is no general environmental conditionality for EU financial support to Indonesia, individual projects with a potential impact on the environment must identify and mitigate such impacts. Can the Commission provide details regarding its diplomatic and economic relations with South Sudan? Come intende procedere per permettere al Vescovo Christoforos di celebrare, nelle zone occupate, le liturgie, in particolare quelle legate alla Settimana Santa? Il regime di occupazione turco ha respinto le richieste del vescovo di Neapolis, Porfirio e del sacerdote Diomidis Konstantinou, appartenenti alla Chiesa ortodossa di Cipro, di celebrare la messa nei territori occupati.
Si tratta dell'ennesima proibizione a danno dei cristiani residenti nei territori occupati a Cipro. Purtroppo tale disegno ha provocato numerosi danni a edifici religiosi cristiani. Ancora oggi sono centinaia i luoghi di culto e i monumenti saccheggiati, rovinati e sottoposti ad atti vandalici. Le Chiese di San Eufemiano e di San Caralambo sono due esempi evidenti della devastazione dei turchi.
Vi sono decine di migliaia di turco-ciprioti che attraversano ogni giorno i sette check point che permettono la circolazione tra i territori occupati e quelli liberi. Le condizioni di vita dei cristiani residenti nei territori occupati non sembrano migliorare. Prima sono stati deportati gli abitanti, ora si tratta di cancellare ogni traccia di presenza cristiana e greca. Non ritiene preoccupante, anche ai fini della tutela del patrimonio artistico ed architettonico, che i saccheggi e le devastazioni continuino?
Il regime di occupazione turco ha respinto le richieste del vescovo di Neapolis, Porfirio, e del sacerdote Diomidis Konstantinou, ambedue della Chiesa ortodossa di Cipro, di celebrare la messa nei territori occupati. Come valuta questi gesti di chiusura e intolleranza verso i cristiani alla luce del supposto processo di integrazione che dovrebbe portare la Turchia a divenire Stato membro dell'UE? Dapprima sono stati deportati gli abitanti, mentre ora si tratta di cancellare ogni traccia di presenza cristiana e greca: sono infatti centinaia i luoghi di culto cristiani e i monumenti archeologici saccheggiati, sconsacrati e sottoposti a vandalismi.
Is the Commission aware of this incident? What policies does it intend to implement to ensure that the right to religious freedom in Northern Cyprus is not violated? What does it intend to do to enable Bishop Christoforos to celebrate services in the occupied areas, particularly those relating to Holy Week?
Given Turkey's continued implementation of this policy in occupied Cyprus, particularly in Karpasia:. Does the Commission intend to take any measures so that the occupying authorities and the Turkish Government cease this flagrant violation of the religious freedoms of Greek Cypriots, and in particular those forming part of the enclaved community in occupied Karpasia?
If so, what are these measures? This is yet another prohibition placed upon Christians living in the occupied territory in Cyprus. Recently, moreover, the Bishop of the Karpasia peninsula, Christoforos, has been added to the list of people who are permanently denied entry to the occupied territory of Cyprus. What annoys the general public is the brazen attitude of the Turkish occupying regime, which has confirmed on many occasions its desire to facilitate celebrations of the Christian liturgy. Unfortunately, this plan has resulted in significant damage to Christian religious buildings.
Even today, hundreds of places of worship and monuments are being looted, damaged and vandalised. There are tens of thousands of Turkish Cypriots every day who cross the seven checkpoints that allow movement between the occupied and free territories. Thanks to the transit points, people can go to work and access medical assistance and other services. The living conditions of Christians living in the occupied territories do not seem to be improving.
The violations of human rights and religious freedom continue right under the noses of the international community. Konstantinou have been refused permission to celebrate a Sunday service. First, inhabitants were deported and now Turkish forces are attempting to remove every trace of Christian and Greek presence in the area. Hundreds of Christian places of worship and archaeological sites have been ransacked, desecrated and vandalised. These are the transit points that allow movement across the ceasefire line into the free territories of Cyprus for tens of thousands of Turkish Cypriots for work, to gain access to free medical care or to obtain travel documents so that they can expatriate.
How long will she continue to tolerate the prohibition of religious freedom on EU territory? Does she not also consider it worrying, in terms of protecting artistic and architectural heritage, that the plundering and destruction is continuing? What measures does she intend to take in respect of Turkey to safeguard religious freedom in Cyprus and to protect its artistic and cultural heritage?
The latest in a long line of prohibitions comes after Christoforos, Bishop of Karpasia, was added to the list of people who are permanently denied entry into the occupied territory of Cyprus. How does the Commission intend to stop the plan by Ankara to reduce the religious freedom of Christians still living in the territories occupied by the Turkish armed forces? What view does it take of these obstructive and intolerant gestures towards Christians in view of the supposed process of integration that should be bringing Turkey closer to becoming a member of the EU?
Recent days have seen yet another serious violation of religious freedom in Cyprus: the occupying Turkish regime rejected requests by two Cypriot ecclesiastics, Bishop Porphyrios of Neapolis and Father Diomidis Konstantinou, both members of the Orthodox Church of Cyprus, to celebrate mass in the occupied territories. This new ban has come shortly after Bishop Christoforos of the Karpass peninsula was included on a list of people permanently barred from entering the occupied territories of Cyprus; that episode had already sparked numerous protests by many international personalities and agencies, promptly ignored and disregarded by the Turkish regime.
Initially, the inhabitants were deported, while now it is a case of erasing all traces of Greek and Christian presence. Indeed, hundreds of Christian places of worship and archaeological monuments have been looted, desecrated and subjected to vandalism. Moreover, what measures does she intend to take specifically to defend the freedom and respect for the fundamental rights of EU citizens who live in a territory not governed by a Member State, through no fault of their own? Qual a possibilidade de ser criado um instrumento de financiamento europeu semelhante ao FEG mas que atue preventivamente evitando o encerramento das empresas?
The majority of European countries are facing serious economic and budgetary difficulties, requiring governments to adopt harsh measures that reduce family income and, as a consequence, lower the propensity for private consumption;. Aside from the lack of consumer confidence, there are other factors that affect the sustainability of companies, such as foreign companies that are more competitive, a more favourable macroeconomic environment outside of Europe and the increasing demand for new products with greater added value;. Various European companies have been finding it extremely difficult to sell their products, applying structural adjustment plans that lead to entire workforces being dismissed;.
The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund EGF is a financial instrument that is only activated after companies have stopped their business activity. It cannot be used prior to this to address the economic difficulties companies face and thus protect jobs and maintain European ownership. What initiatives are being considered to support companies that are experiencing serious economic difficulties due to the financial crisis currently affecting the European Union?
What is the possibility of creating a European financial instrument similar to the EGF but that can act preventatively to stop companies from closing? Does it know how many European companies have already been acquired by their foreign counterparts? Does it not agree that this fact is worrying when it comes to the competitiveness of the European area? This includes access to finance, which will be one of the issues in this year's review of the Communication on industrial policy.
The Commission is not aware of any reliable data on the number of takeovers between direct competitors. Not all FDI constitutes acquisitions of companies, but such data illustrates that Europe is an attractive destination for FDI, and is also active in third countries. This is and remains the basic position of the Commission. Falls nein, warum nicht? Trifft es zu, dass es keine Geheimdokumente bzw. Um den Verwaltungsaufwand zu verringern, wurden diese Fragen in einer Anfrage zusammengefasst und die einzelnen Fragen mit einer laufenden Nummer versehen. Is it the case that there are no secret documents or secret parts of documents that relate to ACTA, just documents or parts of documents that are not intended for publication?
In order to reduce administrative effort, these queries have been framed within one question and have been numbered successively. The author of the question therefore politely requests that the individual queries should be answered with reference to their number. El art. The Commission has not received any specific information on the proposal referred to by the Honourable Member.
Within its competences, the Commission has always been strongly committed to ensuring that freedom of expression and information and freedom of assembly are strictly respected since they lie at the very base of a free, democratic and pluralist society. The Commission also stands for a freely accessible Internet and for freedom of expression and freedom of information via the Internet.
However, the Commission's powers regarding acts and omissions by Member States are limited to overseeing the application of European Union law, under the control of the Court of Justice of the European Union cf. Die EU-Kommission hat in ihrem aktuellen Zwischenbericht vom 8.
It indicated that Romania needs to make particular efforts with regard to public procurement. If so, what sums are involved? Have such penalties been imposed against Romania to date? The Commission identified deficiencies in the functioning of the management and control system related to public procurement for a number of programmes in Romania. Consequently, the Commission sent a warning letter to all programmes in Romania and invited the Romanian authorities to verify and improve the whole systems. In this context, the Commission is closely cooperating with the Romanian authorities in order to improve the public procurement system.
This procedure has not been applied to Romania thus far. Oggetto: Autorizzazione per l'immissione sul mercato di quattro varianti di soia OGM. A marzo la Commissione ha autorizzato l'immissione sul mercato per dieci anni, a fini alimentari e per produrre mangimi, di quattro varianti di soia OGM, la A della Bayer, la della Pioneer e le e Mon di Monsanto. Pur non essendo stato raggiunto il consenso politico da parte sia del Comitato preposto sia del Consiglio, la Commissione ha proceduto, come previsto dal regolamento CE n. Gli effetti sulla salute e sull'ambiente sono elementi attentamente considerati dall'EFSA ai fini della valutazione dei rischi connessi alle domande di commercializzazione di OGM.
Effects on health and the environment are elements watchfully assessed by EFSA in the risk assessment of applications for the placing on the market of GMOs. So far, no unexpected effects of these products were reported compared to those already considered in the risk assessments done for the initial authorisation. Therefore, at this point in time the Commission does not consider that there is a need to reconsider the current approach for the authorisation of GMOs for food and feed use. Oggetto: Additivi alimentari a base di alluminio.
L'Australia, per esempio, ha ritenuto necessario proibire l'uso del colorante E Per tale motivo la Commissione europea ha adottato misure per ridurre la dose di alluminio proveniente dagli additivi alimentari. Tali misure rientrano nei regolamenti EU n. Le misure proposte riguardano le principali fonti di alluminio legate agli additivi alimentari e dovrebbero produrre una riduzione dell'assunzione complessiva di alluminio.

Higher energy efficiency can also be achieved by making sensible decisions about future energy consumption, e. However, this is rarely done, as the study reported here demonstrates. Data was collected in two ways: via energy audits and in interviews with a sample of building and organisation representatives. The study analyses electric energy intensities, changes in the stock and control of end-use equipment which I refer to as energy-relevant events and the decision-making behind these changes.
Energy conservation measures were found to be more frequently implemented in buildings with professional energy managers or where energy was monitored by a director. However, only one seventh of the accumulated effect of all the consumption-decreasing events were caused by explicit conservation measures.
In contrast, almost four fifths of the decreasing effect was caused by events where energy savings were not an issue e. Thus, in this case, a model of purposive action fails to explain energy consequences. In such situations, it is more appropriate to use a model of organisational decision-making and to analyse the enforcing and constraining impact of social institutions and technical infrastructures.
