THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 215 thereof,

Council Regulation (EU) 2018/1001 (3) gives effect to the measures provided for in Decision (CFSP) 2018/1006.

(4)

These measures fall within the scope of the Treaty and, therefore, notably with a view to ensuring their uniform application in all Member States, regulatory action at the level of the Union is necessary.

(5)

Regulation (EU) 2018/1001 should therefore be repealed accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
