DECISION (EU) 2022/457 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

of 9 March 2022

on the mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund for Displaced Workers (EGF/2022/000 TA 2022 – Technical assistance at the initiative of the Commission)

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 offering support to displaced workers and self-employed persons whose activity has ceased in the case of major restructuring events and supporting 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 million (in 2018 prices), as laid down in Article 8 of Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2020/2093 (3).

(3)

Regulation (EU) 2021/691 states that a maximum of 0,5 % of the annual ceiling of the EGF may be used each year for technical assistance at the initiative of the Commission.

(4)

The EGF should, therefore, be mobilised in order to provide the sum of EUR 290 000 for technical assistance at the initiative of the Commission.

(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 290 000 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 9 March 2022.

Done at Strasbourg, 9 March 2022.
