  • [01] La transposition des Directives européennes dans le domaine social est en bonne voie, mais l'Italie et le Luxembourg accusent un retard

    Au cours des deux dernières années, le taux moyen de transposition de la législation européenne dans le domaine social est passé de 90,5% à 95,8% dans l'ensemble de l'Union européenne (UE). Bien que neuf Etats membres aient transposé l'intégralité - ou presque - des Directives applicables en droit national, l'Italie et le Luxembourg accusent malheureusement un retard. La Commission européenne poursuivra ses actions à l'encontre des Etats membres qui ne transposent pas la législation sociale dans les temps ou comme il se doit. A cet égard, la Commission a récemment décidé d'entamer de nouvelles actions à l'encontre de l'Italie et de l'Autriche auprès de la Cour de justice européenne (CJE) sur la base de l'article 226 du traité CE en raison d'un retard de transposition de trois Directives sociales dans la législation nationale. Deux autres procédures devant la CJE seront entamées contre l'Italie et une contre l'Autriche.

    [02] Commission approves merger between British Steel and Hoogovens

    The European Commission has given green light to the merger between British Steel plc (UK) and Koninklijke Hoogovens NV (the Netherlands). The sectors involved in this concentration are the production and distribution of steel products. The Commission paid particular attention to the situation that would arise on the tinplate market where the new entity would have a share of between 25% and 35% of all tinplate supply and a similar proportion for tinplate for beverage cans. However the investigation showed that the strong buying power of consumers and competition from other suppliers within and outside the European Union (EU) would suffice to prevent the companies from acquiring a market position incompatible with European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) rules. With regards to the other products and services provided by both British Steel and Hoogovens, the Commission concluded that the operation is not likely to raise competitive concerns.
