(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 577/98 of 9 March 1998 on the organisation of a labour force sample survey in the Community (1), and in particular Article 7a(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In order to monitor progress towards the common objectives set out in the Europe 2020 Strategy and the related ‘Youth on the Move’ flagship initiative (2), it is necessary to have a comprehensive set of data on young people and their transition towards the labour market that allows comparisons to be made between Member States.

(2)

In its Communication Rethinking Education: Investing in skills for better socioeconomic outcomes  (3), the Commission encourages Member States to introduce reforms of their education systems, in order that young people are equipped with the right skills for employment.

(3)

In its Resolution of 27 November 2009 on a renewed framework for European cooperation in the youth field (2010-18) (4), the Council underlines the need for better knowledge and understanding of the living conditions, values and attitudes of young women and men.

(4)

In its Recommendation of 22 April 2013 on establishing a Youth Guarantee (5), the Council encourages Member States to implement Youth Guarantee schemes as soon as possible, preferably from the start of the 2014-20 multiannual financial framework. They are advised to make use of the EU's Common Strategic Framework Funds and the European Social Fund in particular for this purpose.

(5)

In its Communication Working together for Europe's young people: A call to action on youth unemployment  (6), the Commission encourages Member States to implement the Youth Guarantee and to invest in young people. It promotes online services that allow young people to search job opportunities advertised by employers from their own and other Member States, while also helping SMEs to recruit young people from across Europe.

(6)

Commission Regulation (EU) No 318/2013 (7) establishes the 2016 ad hoc module on young people on the labour market.

(7)

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1397/2014 (8) specifies and gives a description of the areas of specialised information (‘ad hoc sub-modules’) to be included in the 2016 ad hoc module on young people on the labour market.

(8)

Regulation (EU) No 545/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council (9) provides that the technical characteristics, the filters, the codes and the deadline for the transmission of data under each ad hoc sub-module referred to in recital 7 should be specified by the Commission.

(9)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the European Statistical System Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The technical characteristics of the 2016 ad hoc module on young people on the labour market, the filters and codes to be used, and the deadline by which data shall be sent to the Commission are set out in the Annex to this Regulation.
