Having regard to Regulation (EU) no 1309/2013 of the European Parliament and the Council of 17 December 2013 on the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (2014-2020) and repealing Regulation (EC) no 1927/2006 (2), and in particular Article 23, second subparagraph, thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

Belgium submitted an application to mobilise the EGF, in respect of redundancies in the enterprise Ford-Werke GmbH and 10 suppliers, on 23 December 2013 and supplemented it by additional information up to 12 June 2014.
