P7_TC1-COD(2011)0225

Position of the European Parliament adopted at first reading on 11 December 2013 with a view to the adoption of Regulation (EU) No …/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a Community system for registration of carriers of radioactive materials [Am. 1]

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community on the Functioning of the European Union , and in particular the second paragraph of Article 31 and Article 32 91 thereof, [Am. 2]

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission, drawn up after obtaining the opinion of a group of persons appointed by the Scientific and Technical Committee European Commission , [Am. 3]

After transmission of the draft legislative act to the national parliaments,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure  (2), [Am. 4]

Whereas:

(1)

Article 33 of the Treaty requires Member States to lay down the appropriate provisions to ensure compliance with the basic safety standards for the protection of the health of workers and the general public against the dangers arising from ionising radiation.

(2)

The basic safety standards for the protection of the health of workers and the general public against the dangers arising from ionising radiation are established by Council Directive 96/29/Euratom (3). That Directive applies to all practices which involve a risk of ionising radiation emanating from an artificial or a natural radiation source, including transport.

(3)

In order to ensure compliance with the basic safety standards persons, organisations or undertakings are subject to regulatory control by the authorities of the Member States. For that purpose Directive 96/29/Euratom requires Member States to submit certain practices involving a hazard from ionising radiation to a system of reporting and prior authorisation or to prohibit certain practices.

(4)

Transport being the only practice of a frequent cross-border nature, carriers of radioactive materials may be required to comply with requirements related to reporting and authorisation systems in several Member States. This Regulation replaces those reporting and authorisation systems in the Member States with a single registration system valid across the European Atomic Energy Community (hereinafter the ‘Community’).

(4a)

There is a need to ensure efficient and harmonised implementation of this Regulation by defining common criteria which Members States should apply in issuing registration certificates and by setting up a mechanism for feasible and mandatory exchange of information with other Member States in order to ensure control of carriers, verify compliance, and react efficiently to emergency situations. [Am. 5]

(5)

For carriers by air and sea, such registration and certification systems already exist. Council Regulation (EEC) No 3922/91 (4) lays down that air carriers need a specific air operator certificate for the transportation of dangerous goods. For transports by sea, Directive 2002/59/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (5) establishes a Community vessel traffic monitoring and information system. The certificates issued by the civil aviation authorities and the reporting system for maritime vessels are deemed to satisfactorily implement the reporting and authorisation requirements of Directive 96/29/Euratom. Registration of air and sea carriers under this Regulation is therefore not necessary to enable Member States to ensure compliance with the basic safety standards in these transport modes.

(6)

Carriers of radioactive material are subject to a number of requirements of Union and Euratom legislation as well as international legal instruments. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material (TS-R-1) and the Model Regulations for the Transport of Dangerous Goods continue to apply directly or are implemented by Member States under Directive 2008/68/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (6) for road, rail and inland waterway transport. The provisions of that Directive are, however, without prejudice to the application of other provisions in the fields of occupational safety and health and environmental protection.

(6a)

In order to take into account possible risks related to the safety standards for the protection of the environment and health of workers and the general public, the power to adopt acts in accordance with Article 290 TFEU should be delegated to the Commission in respect of the establishment of common criteria to be complied with by carriers of radioactive materials in order to obtain a registration certificate. It is of particular importance that the Commission carry out appropriate consultations during its preparatory work, including at expert level. The Commission, when preparing and drawing up delegated acts, should ensure a simultaneous, timely and appropriate transmission of relevant documents to the European Parliament and to the Council. [Am. 60]

(7)

In order to ensure uniform conditions for implementation of this Regulation, implementing powers should be conferred on the Commission. Those powers should be exercised in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 182/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council (7).

(7a)

Given the broad aim of reducing the regulatory burden on industry, the economic impact of this Regulation on the many small businesses that transport radioactive material within a single Member State's territory should be further monitored by the Commission. [Am. 7]

HAVE ADOPTED THIS REGULATION

Article 1

Subject matter and scope
