AGREEMENT IN THE FORM OF EXCHANGES OF LETTERS

between the Council of the European Union and the Republic of Iceland and the Kingdom of Norway concerning committees which assist the European Commission in the exercise of its executive powers

A. Letter from the Community

Sir,

The Council refers to the negotiations concerning the Agreement concerning the association of the Republic of Iceland and the Kingdom of Norway to the implementation, application and development of the Schengen acquis and has taken good note of the request of Iceland and Norway, in the spirit of their participation in the decision-making process in the fields covered by the Agreement and in order to enhance the good functioning of the Agreement, to be fully associated with the work of the committees which assist the European Commission in the exercise of its executive powers.

The Council notes that in future, when such procedures will be applied in the fields covered by the Agreement, there will indeed be a need to associate Iceland and Norway with the work of these committees, also in order to ensure that the procedures of the Agreement have been applied to the acts or measures concerned, so that these may become binding on Iceland and Norway.

Therefore, the European Community is ready to commit itself to negotiate, as soon as the need arises, appropriate arrangements for the association of Iceland and Norway with the work of these committees.

I should be obliged if you would inform me of whether or not your Government is in agreement with the above.

Please accept, Sir, the assurance of my highest consideration.
