COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1104/2006

of 18 July 2006

amending Regulation (EC) No 831/2002 implementing Council Regulation (EC) No 322/97 on Community Statistics, concerning access to confidential data for scientific purposes

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 322/97 of 17 February 1997 on Community Statistics (1) and in particular Article 17(2) and Article 20(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 831/2002 (2) establishes, for the purpose of enabling statistical conclusions to be drawn for scientific purposes, the conditions under which access to confidential data transmitted to the Community authority may be granted. It enumerates the different surveys and data sources to which it applies.

(2)

There is a growing demand by researchers and scientific community in general to have access for scientific purposes also to confidential data from the Structure of Earnings Survey. The Structure of Earnings Survey represents EU-wide harmonised structural data on gross earnings, hours paid and annual days of paid holiday leave which are collected every four years under Council Regulation (EC) No 530/1999 of 9 March 1999 concerning structural statistics on earnings and on labour costs (3). Access to this confidential data would largely benefit the research work on earnings of individuals and their relation with the characteristics of the employer. This survey should therefore be added to the enumeration in Regulation (EC) No 831/2002.

(3)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Regulation (EC) No 831/2002 is amended as follows:

However, on the request of the national authority which provided the data, access to data from that national authority shall not be granted for a specific research project.’

2.

‘1.   The Community authority may release sets of anonymised microdata obtained from the following surveys or statistical data sources:

European Community Household Panel,

Labour Force Survey,

Structure of Earnings Survey.

However, on the request of the national authority which provided the data, access to data from that national authority shall not be granted for a specific research project.’
