    [01] Commission amends its proposal for a European Refugee Fund in view of the emergency situation in Kosovo

    The European Commission has decided to amend its proposal for a Joint Action establishing a European Refugee Fund in order to make available financial assistance to those Member States that are receiving people who have fled as a result of recent events in Kosovo. The original proposal, which was adopted on 16 December 1998 has two objectives : to help Member States set up improved infrastructure and procedures for receiving asylum seekers and displaced persons and to assist voluntary return to their countries of origin. Both objectives are directed towards medium-term projects. This proposal has been blocked by Member States for institutional reasons. In order to respond rapidly to the Kosovo crisis, the amended proposal introduces a third objective meaning that measures taken under the Joint Action may also include emergency assistance to Member States which receive a significant number of people who have fled from Kosovo or from other regions in comparable circumstances. The financial assistance would contribute to the costs of accommodation, means of subsistence, medical or other assistance and of personnel for duration of six months. The total amount available under 1999 is euro 15 million.

    [II] Other news - Autres nouvelles

    [02] La Commission approuve le code de conduite de l'ordre professionnel Institut des mandataires agréés (IMA)

    La Commission européenne a adopté une décision qui clarifie sa politique en matière d'application des règles de concurrence aux décisions d'ordre professionnel, et notamment aux restrictions de publicité comparative. C'est la première fois que la Commission applique les règles de concurrence dans le secteur des professions libérales de portée européenne à des pratiques autres que la fixation d'honoraires. La décision confirme la compatibilité des dispositions du code de conduite de l'Institut des mandataires agréés (IMA) - un ordre professionnel qui regroupe, au niveau européen, tous les mandataires agréés auprès de l'Office européen des brevets (OEB) - avec l'article 85 du traité CE et l'article 53 de l'accord de l'Espace économique européen.
