of 17 December 2001

adjusting with effect from 1 July 2001 the remuneration and pensions of officials and other servants of the European Communities and the weightings applied thereto

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to the Protocol on the Privileges and Immunities of the European Communities, and in particular Article 13 thereof,

Having regard to the Staff Regulations of Officials and the Conditions of Employment of Other Servants of the European Communities laid down by Council Regulation (EEC, Euratom, ECSC) No 259/68(1), as last amended by Regulation (EC, ECSC, Euratom) No 1986/2001(2), and in particular Articles 63, 64, 65, 65a and 82 of and Annex XI to the said Staff Regulations(3), and the first paragraph of Article 20 and Article 64 of the Conditions of Employment,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas:

(1) A review of the remuneration of officials and other servants carried out on the basis of a report by the Commission has shown that the remuneration and pensions of officials and other servants of the Communities should be adjusted under the 2001 annual review.

(2) In accordance with Annex XI to the Staff Regulations, the annual adjustment in respect of 2002 will entail the establishment before 31 December 2002 of new weightings with retroactive effect from 1 July 2002.

(3) These new weightings could lead to retroactive adjustments to remuneration and pensions (positive or negative) in respect of the period of 2002 for which payments have already been made on the basis of this Regulation.

(4) Provision should therefore be made for the payment of arrears in the event of an upward adjustment as a result of these weightings or for the recovery of sums overpaid in the event of a downward adjustment for the period between the effective date and the date of entry into force of the Council's decision on the annual adjustment in respect of 2002.

(5) Provision should be made for the effects of any such recovery to be spread over a period of not more than twelve months following the date of entry into force of the Councils decision on the annual adjustment in respect of 2002,
