Thursday

Request from 37 Members for the Mitchell report (A6-0060/2005 — Financing instrument for development cooperation and economic cooperation) (Item 68 on the agenda) to be referred back to committee under Rule 168. The request would be put to the vote during the vote on the report itself.

Parliament agreed to that arrangement.

Martin Schulz, on behalf of the PSE Group, requested that the agenda should include a Commission statement on the decision by the Slovak Government to make the police once again subject to marshal law in certain areas.

The following spoke on the request: Peter Mandelson (Member of the Commission), who informed the House that Vice-President Frattini, the Commissioner responsible, would not be able to attend to make a statement the following day, but, if Parliament so wished, he would be able to do so during a subsequent part-session, Monika Beňová, Peter Šťastný and Hannes Swoboda, on Peter Mandelson's remarks.

Parliament approved the request by electronic vote (181 for, 130 against, 5 abstentions).

The item was added to Thursday's agenda.

Euroregions

European Parliament resolution on the role of ‘Euroregions’ in the development of regional policy (2004/2257(INI))

The European Parliament,

having regard to Article 87(3) of the EC Treaty,

having regard to Article 158 of the EC Treaty,

having regard to the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down general provisions establishing a European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (COM (2004)0628),

having regard to the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the European Regional Development Fund (COM(2004)0495),

having regard to the proposal for a Council regulation laying down general provisions on the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund and the Cohesion Fund (COM(2004)0492),

having regard to the proposal for a Council Regulation establishing a Cohesion Fund (COM(2004) 0494),

having regard to the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a European grouping of cross-border cooperation (EGCC) (COM(2004)0496),

having regard to the European Outline Convention on Transfrontier Co-operation between Territorial Communities or Authorities of the Council of Europe (Madrid, 21 May 1980) and its Additional Protocols, and to the European Charter of Local Self-Government of the Council of Europe (Strasbourg, 15 October 1985),

having regard to Rule 45 of its Rules of Procedure,

having regard to the report of the Committee on Regional Development (A6-0311/2005),

A.

Whereas the enlargement of the European Union to 25 Member States on 1 May 2004 increased the disparities between European regions and forthcoming enlargements may further increase those disparities; whereas enlargement also led to a substantial increase in the number of border regions; whereas it should be noted that Euroregions have made a decisive contribution towards surpassing frontiers in Europe, building good, neighbourly relations, bringing people together on both sides of borders and breaking down prejudices, in particular through cooperation at local and regional level across national borders,

B.

Whereas regional disparities in the enlarged union need to be reduced and need to be addressed with an effective cohesion policy aimed at harmonious development within the EU,

C.

Whereas one requirement of an effective cohesion policy and of European integration is to ensure the sustainable development of cross-border co-operation and finally to overcome the difficulties existing to date in funding joint projects that benefit equally local authorities and regions on either side of a border,

D.

Whereas Euroregions and similar structures are important instruments of cross-border co-operation that nonetheless have to be further developed and improved and whereas they should have certain legal status,

E.

Whereas the ultimate aim of Euroregions is to promote cross-border co-operation between border regions, local entities, regional authorities, social partners and all other actors, not necessarily Member States of the EU, on matters such as culture, education, tourism, economic issues and any other aspect of daily life,

F.

Whereas the Association of European Border Regions has presented several reports on the status of cross-border co-operation in Europe and has prepared studies on a cross-border legal instrument on decentralised cooperation of the Commission and the Committee of the Regions,

1.

Considers that cross-border cooperation is of fundamental importance to European cohesion and integration and must therefore be given wide support;

2.

Calls on Member States to promote the use of Euroregions as one of the tools of cross-border cooperation;

3.

Notes that a Euroregion or similar structure fulfils important cross-border tasks, providing, for example:

an information and service point for citizens, institutions and regional and local authorities;

a focal point for common values, aims and strategies;

a driving force for solving cross-border problems;

a mouthpiece in all cross-border questions;

4.

Notes that Euroregions are a turn table for all cross-border relationships, contacts, knowledge transfers and operational programmes and projects and that they need certain legal status to be able to perform their tasks;

5.

Stresses that cross-border cooperation provides a suitable approach to solving daily problems on both sides of the border, especially in economic, social, cultural and environmental fields;

6.

Stresses that cross-border cooperation makes a considerable contribution to the implementation of the Lisbon strategy through:

joint innovation and research;

research and development (R&D) networks across borders;

the exchange of best practice and experience;

7.

Notes that Euroregions enhance proximity ties through local best-practice exchange projects; therefore considers it particularly important that the microproject form of assistance, as provided for in the Commission's Communication Interreg III (1), currently in effect, be maintained under the Structural Funds;

8.

Notes the legislative work in progress on a European grouping of cross-border cooperation (EGCC), the aim of which is to simplify cross-border cooperation instruments (facilitating their actions, rationalising procedures and reducing operating costs), thus providing a platform for Euroregions to develop;

9.

Underlines the need to give priority to eliminating disparities between regions in the new Member States and in the old Member States;

10.

Stresses the need to extend the concept of Euroregions and similar structures, even though they do not necessarily have the legal competencies to include multiple facets of co-operation; suggests as possible fields of mutual interest, promoting culture, education, tourism and economic issues as well as, where applicable, fighting organised crime, drug trafficking and fraud in partnership with relevant national institutions;

11.

Points to the need for integration between projects programmed in countries which share borders;

12.

Welcomes the Commission's efforts to simplify instruments of cross-border co-operation;

13.

Calls for Euroregions and similar structures as proposed in the legal framework of the EGCC to be enabled to develop, implement and manage cross-border programmes in the EU as well as programmes in line with the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument and the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) as from the year 2007 onwards in partnership with national institutions;

14.

Stresses the importance of cross-border co-operation and Euroregions for Member States with natural handicaps, including small island states;

15.

Stresses the need to support cross-border co-operation and the establishment of Euroregions, including regions in the sensitive area of the Middle East, in an effort to promote friendly relations, stability, security and economic interests in terms of mutual respect and benefit;

16.

Draws attention to paragraph 1(xxvii) of its resolution on the proposal for a Council Regulation establishing a Cohesion Fund (2) adopted on 6 July 2005, and calls on the Commission to make provision for a premium system along the same lines, taking the form of a ‘Community quality and effectiveness reserve’ specifically targeting incentives for measures having cross-border effects or potentially dovetailing with existing infrastructure in Euroregions;

17.

Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council and Commission.

C.

whereas Andrzej Pęczak complains that those criminal proceedings brought against him are in breach of the presumption of innocence and that the conditions of his detention and arrest limit his ability to defend himself,

D.

whereas Andrzej Pęczak complains that the procedure by which the Sejm waived his immunity was ‘legally invalid’ and based on publications in the media, and that his motions for action sent to various persons (such as the Ombudsman) had no effect,

E.

Budgetary discipline

European Parliament resolution on the Interinstitutional Agreement on budgetary discipline and improvement of the budgetary procedure (2005/2237(INI))

The European Parliament,

having regard to the EC Treaty and in particular Article 272 thereof,

having regard to the Communications from the Commission to the Council and the European Parliament of 26 February 2004 entitled ‘Building our common future: Policy challenges and budgetary means of the Enlarged Union 2007-2013’ COM(2004)0101 and of 14 July 2004 entitled ‘Financial Perspectives 2007-2013’ (COM(2004)0487) and to the Commission working document of 12 April 2005 entitled ‘Technical adjustments to the Commission proposal for the multiannual financial framework 2007-2013’ SEC(2005)0494,

having regard to the Interinstitutional Agreement of 6 May 1999 between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline and improvement of the budgetary procedure (1) and in particular point 26 thereof,

having regard to its resolution of 8 June 2005 on Policy Challenges and Budgetary Means of the Enlarged Union 2007-2013 (2),

having regard to Rule 45 of its Rules of Procedure,

having regard to the report of the Committee on Budgets (A6-0356/2005),

A.

whereas the current financial perspective will in principle end in 2006,

B.

whereas most Community legislation for multiannual programmes with financial implications must be renewed from 2007 onwards,

C.

whereas the current financial perspective is part of the Interinstitutional Agreement on budgetary discipline and improvement of the budgetary procedure, which can only be concluded on the basis of a joint agreement between the two arms of the budgetary authority,

D.

whereas, in the absence of a financial perspective, Article 272 of the Treaty provides for annual budgets,

E.

whereas it adopted a negotiating position which defines its political priorities for the future financial perspective and a proposal to restructure the EU budget and promote the quality of implementation by improving procedures,

1.

Reconfirms its position as set out in its above-mentioned resolution of 8 June 2005;

2.

Confirms its will to make all efforts to reach agreement on the next financial perspective and Interinstitutional Agreement which would be acceptable in order to preserve the responsibilities and the ambitions of the European Union over a new multi-annual period;

3.

Shares the Commission's concerns to reach an agreement in time to ensure continuity and reform of programmes and to prepare the next period in time for the beginning of the budgetary procedure for 2007 (April 2007);

4.

Takes note of President Barroso's letter of 20 October 2005 setting out the Commission's contribution to the final phase of negotiations, considers some aspects of these proposals useful, but reminds the Commission and the Council of the importance of all the points set out in its above-mentioned resolution of 8 June 2005 to complementing the financial perspective 2007-2013 and considers their integration in the Interinstitutional Agreement to be essential to any new financial perspective;

5.

Invites the Commission to submit a formal revised proposal of the Interinstitutional Agreement which would incorporate its proposals on reserves and flexibility and other qualitative points set out its abovementioned resolution of 8 June 2005;

6.

Stresses that there will be no financial perspective without an agreement on an Interinstitutional Agreement; recalls that, in this context, Parliament adopted non-negotiable points such as the creation of a revision clause, reserves for flexibility, improvement of the quality of implementation through the revision of the Financial Regulation, simplification of the administrative burden, certification by Member States and respect for Parliament's rights in the external programmes;

7.

Notes that the differences of opinion that prevented an agreement from being reached at the European Council meeting of 17 June 2005 had less to do with the level or breakdown of expenditure than with how expenditure was to be funded, which confirms that any overall agreement on the financial perspective will need to include an agreement on the principle of a reform of the current own-resources system;

8.

Invites the Council to express, in its common position and negotiation mandate, its serious will to negotiate by including not only a proposal for a financial framework but also points on how to improve the structure of the budget and the quality of budgetary execution and implementation and how to accommodate the Lisbon Strategy following the example of the Parliament's negotiation position;

9.

Reminds the Council that there will be no financial perspective and no Interinstitutional Agreement without an agreement between the European Parliament and the Council; also recalls that, since it adopted its negotiating position on 8 June 2005 in due time, it will reject any attempt to hold it responsible for any delay in reaching agreement;

10.

Reminds the Council that in absence of a financial perspective 2007-2013 and a new Interinstitutional Agreement the financial needs of the European Union, including needs for multi-annual programmes, can be ensured under Article 272 of the Treaty or in an amended point 26 of the Interinstitutional Agreement of 6 May 1999,

11.

Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council and Commission.

Compulsory licensing for pharmaceutical patents ***I

European Parliament legislative resolution on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on compulsory licensing of patents relating to the manufacture of pharmaceutical products for export to countries with public health problems (COM(2004)0737 — C6-0168/2004 — 2004/0258(COD))

(Codecision procedure: first reading)

The European Parliament,

having regard to the Commission proposal to the European Parliament and the Council (COM(2004) 0737) (1),

having regard to Article 251(2) and Articles 95 and 133 of the EC Treaty, pursuant to which the Commission submitted the proposal to Parliament (C6-0168/2004),

having regard to Rule 51 of its Rules of Procedure,

having regard to the report of the Committee on International Trade and the opinions of the Committee on Development, the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety and the Committee on Legal Affairs (A6-0242/2005),

1.

Approves the Commission proposal as amended;

2.

Calls on the Commission to refer the matter to Parliament again if it intends to amend the proposal substantially or replace it with another text;

3.

Instructs its President to forward its position to the Council and the Commission.

P6_TC1-COD(2004)0258

Position of the European Parliament adopted at first reading on 1 December 2005 with a view to the adoption of Regulation (EC) No .../2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on compulsory licensing of patents relating to the manufacture of pharmaceutical products for export to countries with public health problems

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Articles 95 and 133 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Having regard to the Opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee (1),

Acting in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 251 of the Treaty (2),

Whereas:

(1)

On 14 November 2001 the Fourth Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) adopted the Doha Declaration on the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS Agreement) and Public Health. The Declaration recognises that each WTO Member has the right to grant compulsory licences and the freedom to determine the grounds upon which such licences are granted. It also recognises that WTO Members with insufficient or no manufacturing capacity in the pharmaceutical sector could face difficulties in making effective use of compulsory licensing.

(2)

On 30 August 2003 the WTO General Council, in the light of the statement read out by its Chairman, adopted the Decision on the implementation of paragraph 6 of the Doha Declaration on the TRIPS Agreement and Public Health (‘the Decision’). Subject to certain conditions, the Decision waives certain obligations concerning the issue of compulsory licences set out in the TRIPS Agreement in order to address the needs of WTO Members with insufficient manufacturing capacity.

(3)

Given the Community's active role in the adoption of the Decision, its commitment made to the WTO to fully contribute to the implementation of the Decision and its appeal to all WTO Members to ensure that the conditions are put in place which will allow the system set up by the Decision to operate efficiently, it is important for the Community to implement the Decision in its legal order.

(4)

Uniform implementation of the Decision is needed to ensure that the conditions for the granting of compulsory licences for the manufacture and sale of pharmaceutical products, when such products are intended for export, are the same in all Member States and to avoid distortion of competition for operators in the single market. Uniform rules should also be applied to prevent re-importation into the territory of the Community of pharmaceutical products manufactured pursuant to the Decision.

(5)

This Regulation is intended to be part of wider European and international action to address public health problems faced by least developed countries and other developing countries, and in particular to improve access to affordable medicines which are safe and effective, including fixed-dose combinations, and whose quality is guaranteed. In that connection, the procedures laid down in Community pharmaceutical legislation guaranteeing the scientific quality of such products will be available, in particular that provided for in Article 58 of Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 31 March 2004 laying down Community procedures for the authorisation and supervision of medicinal products for human and veterinary use and establishing a European Medicines Agency (3).

(6)

As the compulsory licensing system set up by this Regulation is intended to address public health problems, it should be used in good faith. This system should not be used by countries to pursue industrial or commercial policy objectives. This Regulation is designed to create a secure legal framework and to discourage litigation.

(7)

As this Regulation is part of wider action to address the issue of access to affordable medicines for developing countries, complementary actions are set out in the Commission Programme for Action: Accelerated action on HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis in the context of poverty reduction and in the Commission Communication on a Coherent European Policy Framework for External Action to Confront HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis. Continued urgent progress is necessary, including actions to support research to combat these diseases and to enhance capacity in developing countries.

(8)

It is imperative that products manufactured pursuant to this Regulation reach only those who need them and are not diverted from those for whom they were intended. The issuing of compulsory licences under this Regulation must therefore impose clear conditions upon the licensee as regards the acts covered by the licence, the identification of the pharmaceutical products manufactured under the licence and the countries to which the products will be exported.

(9)

Provision should be made for customs action at external borders to deal with products manufactured and sold for export under a compulsory licence which a person attempts to re-import into the territory of the Community.

(10)

Where pharmaceutical products produced under a compulsory licence have been seized under this Regulation, the competent authority may, in accordance with national legislation and with a view to ensuring that the intended use is made of the seized pharmaceutical products, decide to send the products to the relevant importing country according to the compulsory licence which has been granted.

(11)

To avoid facilitating overproduction and possible diversion of products, the competent authorities should take into account existing compulsory licences for the same products and countries, as well as parallel applications indicated by the applicant.

(12)

Since the objectives of this Regulation, in particular the establishment of harmonised procedures for the granting of compulsory licences which contribute to the effective implementation of the system set up by the Decision, cannot be sufficiently achieved by the Member States because of the options available to exporting countries under the Decision and can therefore, by reason of the potential effects on operators in the internal market, be better achieved at Community level, the Community may adopt measures, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity as set out in Article 5 of the Treaty. In accordance with the principle of proportionality, as set out in that Article, this Regulation does not go beyond what is necessary in order to achieve those objectives.

(13)

The Community recognises the utmost desirability of promoting the transfer of technology and capacity-building to countries with insufficient or no manufacturing capacity in the pharmaceutical sector, in order to facilitate and increase the production of pharmaceutical products by those countries.

(14)

In order to ensure the efficient processing of applications for compulsory licences under this Regulation, Member States should have the ability to prescribe purely formal or administrative requirements, such as rules on the language of the application, the form to be used, the identification of the patent(s) and/or supplementary protection certificate(s) in respect of which a compulsory licence is sought, and rules on applications made in electronic form.

(15)

The simple formula for setting remuneration is intended to accelerate the process of granting a compulsory licence in cases of national emergency or other circumstances of extreme urgency or in cases of public non-commercial use under Article 31(b) of the TRIPS Agreement. The figure of 4 % could be used as a reference point for deliberations on adequate remuneration in circumstances other than those listed above,

HAVE ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Scope

This Regulation establishes a procedure for the grant of compulsory licences in relation to patents and supplementary protection certificates concerning the manufacture and sale of pharmaceutical products, when such products are intended for export to eligible importing countries in need of such products in order to address public health problems.

Member States shall grant a compulsory licence to any person making an application in accordance with Article 6 and subject to the conditions set out in Articles 6 to 10.

Article 2

Definitions

For the purposes of this Regulation, the following definitions shall apply:

1)

‘pharmaceutical product’ means any product of the pharmaceutical sector, including medicinal products as defined in Article 1(2) of Directive 2001/83/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 November 2001 on the Community code relating to medicinal products for human use (4), active ingredients and diagnostic kits ex vivo;

2)

‘rights-holder’ means the holder of any patent or supplementary protection certificate in relation to which a compulsory licence has been applied for under this Regulation;

3)

‘importing country’ means the country to which the pharmaceutical product is to be exported;

4)

‘competent authority’ for the purposes of Articles 1 to 11, 16 and 17 means any national authority having competence to grant compulsory licences under this Regulation in a given Member State.

Article 3

Competent authority

The competent authority as defined in Article 2(4) shall be that which has competence for the granting of compulsory licences under national patent law, unless the Member State determines otherwise.

Member States shall notify the Commission of the designated competent authority as defined in Article 2(4).

Notifications shall be published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Article 4

Eligible importing countries

The following are eligible importing countries:

(a)

any least-developed country appearing as such in the United Nations list;

(b)

any member of the WTO, other than the least-developed country members referred to in point (a), that has made a notification to the Council for TRIPs of its intention to use the system as an importer, including whether it will use the system in whole or in a limited way;

(c)

any country that is not a member of the WTO, but is listed in the OECD Development Assistance Committee's list of low-income countries with a gross national product per capita of less than USD 745, and has made a notification to the Commission of its intention to use the system as an importer, including whether it will use the system in whole or in a limited way.

However, any WTO member that has made a declaration to the WTO that it will not use the system as an importing WTO member is not an eligible importing country.

Article 5

Extension to least-developed and developing countries which are not members of the WTO

The following provisions shall apply to importing countries eligible under Article 4 which are not WTO members:

(a)

the importing country shall make the notification referred to in Article 8(1) directly to the Commission;

(b)

the importing country shall, in the notification referred to in Article 8(1), state that it will use the system to address public health problems and not as an instrument to pursue industrial or commercial policy objectives and that it will adopt the measures referred to in paragraph 4 of the Decision;

(c)

the competent authority may, at the request of the rights-holder, or on its own initiative if national law allows the competent authority to act on its own initiative, terminate a compulsory licence granted pursuant to this Article if the importing country has failed to honour its obligations referred to in point (b). Before terminating a compulsory licence, the competent authority shall take into account any views expressed by the bodies referred to in Article 6(3)(f).

Article 6

Application for a compulsory licence

1.   Any person may submit an application for a compulsory licence under this Regulation to a competent authority in the Member State or States where patents or supplementary protection certificates have effect and cover his intended activities of manufacture and sale for export.

2.   If the person applying for a compulsory licence is submitting applications to authorities in more than one country for the same product, he shall indicate that fact in each application, together with details of the quantities and importing countries concerned.

3.   The application pursuant to paragraph 1 shall set out the following:

(a)

the name and contact details of the applicant and of any agent or representative whom the applicant has appointed to act for him before the competent authority;

(b)

the non-proprietary name of the pharmaceutical product or products which the applicant intends to manufacture and sell for export under the compulsory licence;

(c)

the amount of pharmaceutical product which the applicant seeks to produce under the compulsory licence;

(d)

the importing country or countries;

(e)

where applicable, evidence of prior negotiation with the rights-holder pursuant to Article 9;

authorised representatives of the importing country or countries; or

(ii)

a non-governmental organisation acting with the formal authorisation of one or more importing countries; or

(iii)

UN bodies or other international health organisations acting with the formal authorisation of one or more importing countries,

indicating the quantity of product required.

4.   Purely formal or administrative requirements necessary for the efficient processing of the application may be prescribed under national law. Such requirements shall not add unnecessarily to the costs or burdens placed upon the applicant and, in any event, shall not render the procedure for granting compulsory licences under this Regulation more burdensome than the procedure for the granting of other compulsory licences under national law.

Article 7

Rights of the rights-holder

The competent authority shall notify the rights-holder without delay of the application for a compulsory licence. Before the grant of the compulsory licence, the competent authority shall give the rights-holder an opportunity to comment on the application and to provide the competent authority with any relevant information regarding the application.

Article 8

Verification

1.   The competent authority shall verify that:

(a)

each importing country cited in the application which is a WTO member has made a notification to the WTO pursuant to the Decision,

or

(b)

each importing country cited in the application which is not a WTO member has made a notification to the Commission pursuant to this Regulation in respect of each of the products covered by the application that:

(i)

specifies the names and expected quantities of the product(s) needed;

(ii)

unless the importing country is a least-developed country, confirms that the country has established that it had insufficient or no manufacturing capacity in the pharmaceutical sector in relation to a particular product or products in one of the ways set out in the Annex to the Decision;

(iii)

confirms that where a pharmaceutical product is patented in the territory of the importing country, that importing country has granted or intends to grant a compulsory licence for import of the product concerned in accordance with Article 31 of the TRIPS Agreement and the provisions of the Decision.

This paragraph is without prejudice to the flexibility that least-developed countries have under the Decision of the Council for TRIPS of 27 June 2002.

2.   The competent authority shall verify that the quantity of product cited in the application does not exceed that notified to the WTO by an importing country which is a WTO member, or to the Commission by an importing country which is not a WTO member, and that, taking into account other compulsory licences granted elsewhere, the total amount of product authorised to be produced for any importing country does not significantly exceed the amount notified by that country to the WTO, in the case of importing countries which are WTO members, or to the Commission, in the case of importing countries which are not WTO members.

Article 9

Prior negotiation

1.   The applicant shall provide evidence to satisfy the competent authority that he has made efforts to obtain authorisation from the rights-holder and that such efforts have not been successful within a period of 30 days before submitting the application.

2.   The requirement in paragraph 1 shall not apply in situations of national emergency or other circumstances of extreme urgency or in cases of public non-commercial use under Article 31(b) of the TRIPS Agreement.

Article 10

Compulsory licence conditions

1.   The licence granted shall be non-assignable, except with that part of the enterprise or goodwill which enjoys the licence, and non-exclusive. It shall contain the specific conditions set out in paragraphs 2 to 9 to be fulfilled by the licensee.

2.   The amount of product(s) manufactured under the licence shall not exceed what is necessary to meet the needs of the importing country or countries cited in the application, taking into account the amount of product(s) manufactured under other compulsory licences granted elsewhere.

3.   The duration of the licence shall be indicated.

4.   The licence shall be strictly limited to all acts necessary for the purpose of manufacturing the product in question for export and distribution in the country or countries cited in the application. No product made or imported under the compulsory licence shall be offered for sale or put on the market in any country other than that cited in the application, except where an importing country avails itself of the possibilities under subparagraph 6(i) of the Decision to export to fellow members of a regional trade agreement that share the health problem in question.

5.   Products made under the licence shall be clearly identified, through specific labelling or marking, as being produced pursuant to this Regulation. The products shall be distinguished from those made by the rights-holder through special packaging and/or special colouring/shaping, provided that such distinction is feasible and does not have a significant impact on price. The packaging and any associated literature shall bear an indication that the product is subject to a compulsory licence under this Regulation, giving the name of the competent authority and any identifying reference number, and specifying clearly that the product is exclusively for export to and distribution in the importing country or countries concerned. Details of the product characteristics shall be made available to the customs authorities of the Member States.

6.   Before shipment to the importing country or countries cited in the application, the licensee shall post on a website the following information:

(a)

the quantities being supplied under the licence and the importing countries to which they are supplied;

(b)

the distinguishing features of the product or products concerned.

The website address shall be communicated to the competent authority.

7.   If the product(s) covered by the compulsory licence are patented in the importing countries cited in the application, the product(s) shall only be exported if those countries have issued a compulsory licence for the import, sale and/or distribution of the products.

8.   The competent authority may at the request of the rights-holder or on its own initiative, if national law allows the competent authority to act on its own initiative, request access to books and records kept by the licensee, for the sole purpose of checking whether the terms of the licence, and in particular those relating to the final destination of the products, have been met. The books and records shall include proof of exportation of the product, through a declaration of exportation certified by the customs authority concerned, and proof of importation from one of the bodies referred to in Article 6(3)(f).

9.   The licensee shall be responsible for the payment of adequate remuneration to the rights-holder as determined by the competent authority as follows:

(a)

in the cases referred to in Article 9(2), the remuneration shall be a maximum of 4 % of the total price to be paid by the importing country or on its behalf;

(b)

in all other cases, the remuneration shall be determined taking into account the economic value of the use authorised under the licence to the importing country or countries concerned, as well as humanitarian or non-commercial circumstances relating to the issue of the licence.

10.   The licence conditions are without prejudice to the method of distribution in the importing country.

Distribution may be carried out for example by any of the bodies listed in Article 6(3)(f) and on commercial or non-commercial terms including completely without charge.

Article 11

Refusal of the application

The competent authority shall refuse an application if any of the conditions set out in Articles 6 to 9 are not met, or if the application does not contain the elements necessary to allow the competent authority to grant the licence in accordance with Article 10. Before refusing an application, the competent authority shall give the applicant an opportunity to rectify the situation and to be heard.

Article 12

Notification

When a compulsory licence has been granted, the Member State shall notify the Council for TRIPS through the intermediary of the Commission of the grant of the licence, and of the specific conditions attached to it.

The information provided shall include the following details of the licence:

(a)

the name and address of the licensee;

(b)

the product or products concerned;

(c)

the quantity to be supplied;

(d)

the country or countries to which the product or products are to be exported;

(e)

the duration of the licence;

(f)

the address of the website referred to in Article 10(6).

Article 13

Prohibition of importation

1.   The import into the Community of products manufactured under a compulsory licence granted pursuant to the Decision and/or this Regulation for the purposes of release for free circulation, re-export, placing under suspensive procedures or placing in a free zone or free warehouse shall be prohibited.

2.   Paragraph 1 shall not apply in the case of re-export to the importing country cited in the application and identified in the packaging and documentation associated with the product, or placing under a transit or customs warehouse procedure or in a free zone or free warehouse for the purpose of re-export to that importing country.

Article 14

Action by customs authorities

1.   If there are sufficient grounds for suspecting that products manufactured under a compulsory licence granted pursuant to the Decision and/or this Regulation are being imported into the Community contrary to Article 13(1), customs authorities shall suspend the release of, or detain, the products concerned for the time necessary to obtain a decision of the competent authority on the character of the merchandise. Member States shall ensure that a body has the authority to review whether such importation is taking place. The period of suspension or detention shall not exceed 10 working days unless special circumstances apply, in which case the period may be extended by a maximum of 10 working days. Upon expiry of that period, the products shall be released, provided that all customs formalities have been complied with.

2.   The competent authority, the rights-holder and the manufacturer or exporter of the products concerned shall be informed without delay of the suspended release or detention of the products and shall be given all information available with respect to the products concerned. Due account shall be taken of national provisions on the protection of personal data and commercial and industrial secrecy and professional and administrative confidentiality.

The importer, and where appropriate, the exporter shall be given ample opportunity to supply the competent authority with the information which it deems appropriate regarding the products.

3.   If it is confirmed that products suspended for release or detained by customs authorities were intended for import into the Community contrary to the prohibition in Article 13(1), the competent authority shall ensure that the products are seized and disposed of in accordance with national legislation.

(1) Avian influenza is a serious, highly contagious disease of poultry and other birds caused by different types of influenza viruses. Those viruses may also spread to mammals, including pigs and humans , and are considered a serious threat to human health by the World Health Organization (WHO), because they may well carry with them the threat of an influenza pandemic .

Amendment 2

Recital 7

(7) The infection with certain strains of influenza viruses of avian origin may trigger outbreaks in domestic birds of epizootic proportions, causing mortality and disturbances of poultry on a scale, which can threaten in particular the profitability of poultry farming as a whole. Avian influenza viruses may also affect humans and may pose a serious risk to public health.

(7) The infection with certain strains of influenza viruses of avian origin may trigger outbreaks in domestic birds of epizootic proportions, causing mortality and disturbances of poultry on a scale which can threaten poultry farming as a whole. Avian influenza viruses may also affect humans and the outbreak of a human influenza pandemic originating in an avian virus strain is considered a major threat to public health by the WHO .

Official investigations should include animal and human health clinical or laboratory investigations.

Amendment 15

Recital 13

(13) In the case of detection of infection with low pathogenic avian influenza virus, or in the case of serological evidence of infection, where the presence of the virus cannot be confirmed by virus isolation tests, control measures may differ from those which should apply in the case of detection of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus, taking into account the different levels of risk posed by these two conditions.

(13) In the case of detection of infection with low pathogenic avian influenza virus, or in the case of serological evidence of infection, where the presence of the virus cannot be confirmed by virus isolation tests, control measures should differ from those which should apply in the case of detection of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus, taking into account the different levels of risk posed by these two conditions.

Amendment 16

Recital 14

(14) Disease control measures and in particular the establishment of restriction zones should also be modulated taking into account the density of the poultry population as well as other risk factors in the area, in which the infection has been detected.

(14) Disease control measures and in particular the establishment of restriction zones should also be modulated taking into account the density of the poultry population as well as other risk factors in the area in which the infection has been detected , such as proximity to water areas attracting migratory birds .

Amendment 17

Recital 17

(17) Vaccination against avian influenza can be an effective tool to supplement disease control measures and to avoid massive killing and destruction of poultry and birds. Current knowledge suggests that vaccination may be useful not only in emergenciesbut also to prevent disease in situations of higher risk of introduction of avian influenza viruses from wild life or other sources. Provisions should therefore be established for both emergency and protective vaccination.

(17) Inspections, random screening of animals and vaccination against avian influenza can be an effective tool to supplement disease control measures and to avoid massive killing and destruction of poultry and birds. Current knowledgesuggests that vaccination may be useful not only in emergencies but also to prevent disease in situations of higher risk of introduction of avian influenza viruses from wild life or other sources. Provisions should therefore be established for inspections, random screening of animals and emergency and protective vaccination.

Amendment 18

Recital 18a (new)

European regulatory agencies

European Parliament resolution on the draft interinstitutional agreement presented by the Commission on the operating framework for the European regulatory agencies

The European Parliament,

having regard to the Commission's draft text (COM(2005)0059),

having regard to its resolution of 13 January 2004 on the Communication from the Commission: ‘The operating framework for the European regulatory agencies’ (1),

having regard to the declaration on Article 10 of the Treaty establishing the European Community, adopted by the Intergovernmental Conference at Nice, relating to the duty of sincere cooperation on the part of the Community institutions,

having regard to the opinion of the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety of 11 October 2005 on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Regulation (EEC) No 1210/90 on the establishment of the European Environment Agency and the European Environment Information and Observation Network as regards the term of office of the Executive Director,

having regard to the question for oral answer to the Council tabled jointly by the Committee on Constitutional Affairs and the Committee on Budgets and the answer given by the Council at the sitting of 15 November 2005,

having regard to Rule 108(5) of its Rules of Procedure,

A.

whereas the considerations set out in its resolution of 13 January 2004 essentially remain relevant; whereas, in particular, it is essential to rationalise and simplify the structure of the present and future agencies in the interests of clarity, transparency and legal certainty, and in view of a Union with 25 and more Member States, and the assessments to be made when setting up new agencies must be based on the most stringent criteria, inter alia, as regards the extent to which the agencies' activities would be proper and worthwhile,

B.

whereas, in presenting its draft text, the Commission has complied with Parliament's call for the conclusion of an interinstitutional agreement spelling out common guidelines prior to the adoption of a framework regulation,

C.

whereas the above-mentioned declaration on Article 10 of the Treaty adopted by the Intergovernmental Conference at Nice states that, when it proves necessary, in the context of their duty of sincere cooperation, to facilitate the application of the provisions of the Treaty, the Parliament, the Council and the Commission may conclude interinstitutional agreements,

1.

Welcomes the presentation of the draft text by the Commission;

2.

Regrets the fact that the Council is not prepared to begin negotiations with a view to concluding an agreement on the basis of the Commission's draft text;

3.

Calls on the Commission to continue its efforts to prevail upon the Council to change its mind;

4.

Points out that, when examining future proposals for setting up agencies, it will take the following principles, in particular, as a basis:

(a)

the setting up of an agency should come under the normal legislative procedure, i.e., as a rule, the codecision procedure, and recourse to the procedure under Article 308 of the Treaty should be confined to exceptional cases where the Treaty provisions relating to the subject in issue do not constitute an adequate legal basis;

(b)

any proposal for setting up an agency should be accompanied by a cost-benefit assessment and by a thorough impact assessment showing that the agency option is more cost-effective than having the relevant tasks performed by the Commission departments themselves;

(c)

the autonomy which is to be conferred on the agency in respect of matters falling within its remit does not relieve the Commission of its political responsibility for the agency's activities;

(d)

the way in which the role of the Commission in selecting and appointing the executive body, generally the director, is fulfilled must reflect this requirement for political responsibility and accountability;

(e)

Parliament should exercise ‘ex-ante scrutiny’ in the form of hearings of the candidate(s) for the office of director, ‘ex-post scrutiny’ in the form of the discharge for the implementation of the budget and ongoing scrutiny through monitoring of the agency's activities by its specialised committees; a decision to extend the term of office of a director should be taken solely by the board of directors, on the basis of an evaluation of the director's first term of office;

(f)

the Council should nominate to the supervisory body, the board of directors, representatives with acknowledged expertise, whom the Parliament may invite to a hearing prior to their appointment, if it deems it appropriate; the number of such representatives should be in reasonable proportion to the tasks and importance of the agency, with the aim in the longer term of reducing the size of the board of directors for reasons of efficiency; as long as the number of representatives on the board of directors corresponds to the number of Member States, Parliament, for its part, should designate two members of the board of directors;

(g)

an administrative appeal against an agency's acts which have legal effect vis-à-vis third parties may be lodged with the Commission, which may remedy them; the Commission's decision may be challenged before the courts;

5.

Is concerned about the continual growth in the number of decentralised agencies (at present 23, as against 5 in 1995), as there is a consequent risk of the Commission's executive role being dismantled and fragmented into a plethora of bodies that work largely in an intergovernmental manner, and therefore wishes, at least during the period of reflection in the ratification process for the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe, to see no further such agencies set up;

6.

Welcomes, in the light of the growing cost of decentralised agencies to the Community budget, the fact that, pursuant to the draft text, the Commission will be required to back up any proposal for setting up an agency with an impact assessment, which will not only apply the subsidiarity and proportionality principles but will also include as full as possible an ex-ante evaluation of the likely costs of monitoring and coordination and the impact on human resources and administrative expenditure;

7.

Notes that, whilst agencies receive a subsidy under the Community budget, policy decisions relating to the implementation of Community law are taken by representatives of the Member States on their board of directorss;

8.

Regrets the fact that the Commission is apparently not prepared to provide a clear statement of the financial impact of the existence and development of the current agencies for the period covered by the next financial perspective;

9.

Calls for the principle of a maximum rate of increase in agencies' administrative expenditure to be laid down in the interinstitutional agreement, comparable to that required to be applied in the case of the Commission;

10.

Calls, unlike the draft text, for the interinstitutional agreement gradually to be applied to existing agencies;

11.

Calls on the Conference of Committee Chairmen to review cooperation between the standing committees with responsibility for agencies, the Committee on Budgets and the Committee on Budgetary Control in monitoring agencies' activities, and to update the ‘guidelines’ adopted in July 1998;

12.

Calls on its Committee on Constitutional Affairs to monitor further developments in respect of the Commission's draft text and to refer the matter to it again if necessary;

13.

Invites the chairmen and rapporteurs of the Committees on Constitutional Affairs and on Budgets to take up informal contacts on a political level with representatives of the Council and of the Commission in order to explore the developments in the Council with regard to horizontal measures dealing with the future structure of regulatory agencies;

14.

Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission and the governments of the Member States.
