COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2016/1611

of 7 July 2016

on reviewing the scale for missions by officials and other servants of the European Union in the Member States

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to the Staff Regulations of officials and Conditions of employment of other servants of the European Union, laid down by Council Regulation (EEC, Euratom, ECSC) No 259/68 (1), and in particular Article 112(2) of the Staff Regulations and Article 13 of Annex VII to the Staff Regulations,

After consulting the Staff Regulations Committee,

After consulting the staff representatives from the institutions and other bodies of the European Union,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 13(3) of Annex VII to the Staff Regulations, Eurostat has submitted a report (2) on the evolution of the prices of hotels, restaurants and catering services.

(2)

This report shows that the daily subsistence allowances and the hotel ceilings should be reviewed to take account of the evolution of the prices of hotels, restaurants and catering services.

(3)

Reviewing the scale of the daily subsistence allowance and the hotel ceilings involves an assessment of complex economic and/or social situations, in which the legislator enjoys a wide margin of discretion.

(4)

The last reform of the Staff Regulations of officials and Conditions of employment of other servants of the European Union underlined the need for a particular effort by each and every public administration and each and every member of its staff to improve efficiency and to adjust to the changing economic and social context in Europe.

(5)

Following the accession of the Republic of Croatia to the European Union on 1 July 2013, the reimbursement to officials and other servants of expenditure incurred on missions in this country should be subject to the rules set out in Article 13(2)(a) of Annex VII to the Staff Regulations,
