DECISION (EU) 2022/1163 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

of 23 June 2022

on the mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund for Displaced Workers following an application from Greece (EGF/2021/008 EL/Attica electrical equipment manufacturing)

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2021/691 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 28 April 2021 on the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund for Displaced Workers (EGF) and repealing Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 (1), and in particular Article 15(1) thereof,

Having regard to the Interinstitutional Agreement of 16 December 2020 between the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management, as well as on new own resources, including a roadmap towards the introduction of new own resources (2), and in particular point 9 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

The objectives of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund for Displaced Workers (EGF) are to demonstrate solidarity and promote decent and sustainable employment in the Union by providing support for workers made redundant and self-employed persons whose activity has ceased in the case of major restructuring events and assisting them in returning to decent and sustainable employment as soon as possible.

(2)

The EGF is not to exceed a maximum annual amount of EUR 186 000 000 (in 2018 prices), as laid down in Article 8 of Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2020/2093 (3).

(3)

On 21 December 2021, Greece submitted an application to mobilise the EGF, in respect of workers’ displacements in the economic sector classified under the Statistical classification of economic activities in the European Community (‘NACE’) (4) Revision 2 division 27 (Manufacture of electrical equipment) in the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (‘NUTS’) (5) level 2 region of Attica (EL30) in Greece. It was supplemented by additional information provided in accordance with Article 8(5) of Regulation (EU) 2021/691. That application complies with the conditions for a financial contribution from the EGF as laid down in Article 13 of Regulation (EU) 2021/691.

(4)

The EGF should, therefore, be mobilised in order to provide a financial contribution of EUR 1 495 830 in respect of the application submitted by Greece.

(5)

In order to minimise the time taken to mobilise the EGF, this decision should apply from the date of its adoption,

HAVE ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

For the general budget of the Union for the financial year 2022, the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund for Displaced Workers shall be mobilised to provide the amount of EUR 1 495 830 in commitment and payment appropriations.

Article 2

This Decision shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from 23 June 2022.

Done at Brussels, 23 June 2022.
