Position of the European Parliament adopted at second reading on 6 July 2011 with a view to the adoption of Directive 2011/…/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council facilitating the cross-border exchange of information on road safety related traffic offences

ANNEX

Joint statement by the European Parliament and the Council on correlation tables

The agreement reached between the European Parliament and the Council on the proposal for a Directive facilitating cross-border exchange of information on road safety related traffic offences in the trilogue of 20 June 2011 does not prejudge the outcome of the ongoing inter-institutional discussions on correlation tables.

Commission statement on correlation tables

The Commissions recalls its commitment towards ensuring that Member States establish correlation tables linking the transposition measures they adopt with the EU directive and communicate them to the Commission in the framework of transposing EU legislation, in the interest of citizens, better-law making and increasing legal transparency and to assist the examination of the conformity of national rules with EU provisions.

The Commission regrets the lack of support for the provision included in the proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on a Directive facilitating cross-border enforcement in the field of road safety, which aimed at rendering the establishment of correlation tables obligatory.

The Commission, in a spirit of compromise and in order to ensure the immediate adoption of that proposal, can accept the substitution of the obligatory provision on correlation tables included in the text with a relevant recital encouraging Member States to follow this practice.

However, the position followed by the Commission in this file shall not be considered as a precedent. The Commission will continue its efforts with a view to finding together with the European Parliament and the Council an appropriate solution to this horizontal institutional issue.

Commission statement on road safety guidelines

The Commission will examine the need to develop guidelines at EU level in order to ensure greater convergence in the enforcement of road traffic rules by Member States through comparable methods, practices, standards and frequency of controls, in particular in relation to speeding, drink-driving, non-use of seatbelts and failing to stop at a red traffic light.
