  • [01] La Commission pèse de tout son poids en faveur d'un nouveau système de dédommagement pour les passagers d'avions

    La Commission européenne a appelé le 9 septembre 1999 l'Union européenne (UE) à devenir signataire de la convention de Montréal de 1999 - le nouvel accord mondial régissant la responsabilité pour les dommages subis par les voyageurs, les bagages et les marchandises transportés par avion. Cet accord remplacera l'actuel régime de responsabilité établi il y a 70 ans par la convention de Varsovie, dont un résumé figure encore toujours au verso de n'importe quel billet d'avion vendu dans le monde. Le soutien de l'Europe à la convention de Montréal donnerait un formidable élan au nouvel accord. Elle doit être ratifiée par trente pays avant de pouvoir entrer en vigueur, de sorte que le soutien de l'UE et de ses quinze Etats membres lui assurerait déjà la moitié des signatures nécessaires.

    [02] Commission has no objection to the conditions for participation at the International Dental Exhibition in Cologne, Germany

    In an administrative letter the European Commission has informed the Society for the Promotion of the Dental Industry (GFDI - Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Dentalindustrie mbH) that it has no objections under competition law to the conditions for participation at the International Dental Exhibition (IDE). The IDE is held by the GFDI in collaboration with the local trade fair association every two years in Cologne and is at present the largest exhibition in the world of products for dentists and dental technicians. Participants may not take part in any other exhibition of this kind in Germany for a period of eight weeks before and four weeks after the exhibition (period of restraint). The Commission takes the view that this restriction is justified in particular because of the rationalisation effect desired and the objective of exhibiting as complete as possible a range of products for use by dentists and dental technicians.

    [03] Declaration of intent for the establishment of a regional electricity market in South Eastern Europe

    European Commissioner Christos Papoutsis and the Ministers responsible for Energy of Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Greece and Romania signed today in Thessaloniki, Greece, a Declaration by which they agreed, in a spirit of political and economic cooperation, on the necessity to establish a Regional Electricity Market (REM) in South Eastern Europe with the view to improve the competitiveness and the economic efficiency of the electricity systems in the region. Such a REM is expected to make a significant contribution to the competitiveness of the South Eastern European industrial and economic development and is expected to create directly and indirectly new jobs and new opportunities. They also agreed to follow a phased approach for the creation of this REM and the year 2006 is considered as an indicative target by which a first stage of regional market development could be accomplished. The Commission encourages the countries in the region to use the different Commission programmes in order to move towards a REM.
