COMMISSION DECISION

of 12 December 2006

adjusting the weightings applicable from 1 February, 1 March, 1 April, 1 May and 1 June 2006 to the remuneration of officials, temporary staff and contract staff of the European Communities serving in third countries

(2006/922/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to the Staff Regulations of officials of the European Communities and the conditions of employment of other servants of the Communities laid down by Regulation (EEC, Euratom, ECSC) No 259/68 (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 2104/2005 (2), and in particular the second paragraph of Article 13 of Annex X thereto,

Whereas:

(1)

Pursuant to the first paragraph of Article 13 of Annex X to the Staff Regulations, the weightings to be applied from 1 July 2005 to the remuneration of officials, temporary staff and contract staff of the European Communities serving in third countries payable in the currency of their country of employment were laid down by Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 351/2006 (3).

(2)

Some of these weightings need to be adjusted in accordance with the second paragraph of Article 13 of Annex X to the Staff Regulations, with effect from 1 February, 1 March, 1 April, 1 May and 1 June 2006, since the statistics available to the Commission show that in certain third countries the variation in the cost of living measured on the basis of the weighting and the corresponding exchange rate has exceeded 5 % since weightings were last laid down or adjusted,

HAS DECIDED AS FOLLOWS:

Sole Article

With effect from 1 February, 1 March, 1 April, 1 May and 1 June 2006 the weightings applied to the remuneration of officials, temporary staff and contract staff of the European Communities serving in third countries, payable in the currency of the country of employment, shall be those set out in the Annex hereto.

The exchange rates used for the calculation of this remuneration shall be established in accordance with the rules for the implementation of the Financial Regulation and correspond to the dates referred to in the first paragraph.

Done at Brussels, 12 December 2006.
