The applicant invokes the unlawfulness of points 27, 32, 46, 64(b), 65(b) and 67(d) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1023/2013 (1) in so far as they amend, inter alia, Article 5 (creation of the SC function group), Article 6 (elimination of the guarantee of career equivalence), Article 40(2) (restriction of CCP to 12 years), the second paragraph of Article 43 (indication of potential to carry out an administrator’s function starting from grade AST 5 instead of AST), Article 44(1) (new conditions for advancement to a higher step), Article 51 (professional incompetence procedure), Article 52 (leave in the interests of the service), Article 77 (pension accrual rate of 1,8 %), and Annex VIII, Article 9(2) (early retirement without penalty) of the Staff Regulations.

In support of its action, it invokes the infringement of the agreement between the OSP and the legislator on the 2004 reform, in particular on the reform of careers, the principles of a linear career structure and equivalence of careers.

It also invokes breach of Article 27 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights and of Article 21 of the European Social Charter, infringement of the principle of acquired rights, the principle of proportionality and the principle of non-discrimination.
