  • [01] Commission unveils its route map for reform, sets up Task Force for Administrative Reform and launches proposals to modernise industrial relations

    A Task force for Administative Reform (TFAR) has been set up to steer the reform process in the European Commission. Supported by a reform group of Commissioners, chaired by Vice-President Neil Kinnock, it will both define the reform strategy and oversee the implementation of agreed measures. To ensure that the reform is supported by staff, the Commission is tabling a series of proposals aimed at modernising the framework for industrial relations.

    [02] La Commission va discuter avec le CIO de la création d'une Agence mondiale antidopage

    La Commission européenne a décidé d'habiliter Mme Viviane Reding, Commissaire chargée de l'Education et de la Culture, responsable des sports, à ouvrir des discussions avec le Comité International Olympique (CIO) sur son offre de participation de la Commission à la création et au fonctionnement d'une Agence mondiale antidopage. La Commission accueille favorablement le principe de l'Agence mais constate que des questions importantes restent posées sur son statut et ses règles de fonctionnement. La Commission souhaite en particulier que soit assurée une participation paritaire des pouvoirs publics et des organisations sportives à la gestion de l'Agence.

    [03] La Commission propose de proclamer 2001 Année européenne des langues

    La Commission européenne a adopté une proposition de décision du Parlement européen et du Conseil des ministres établissant l'Année européenne des langues 2001. Cette initiative, que la Commission propose de doter d'un budget de 8 millions d'euros, consistera en une série d'actions d'information et en un cofinancement de projets locaux, régionaux, nationaux ou transnationaux. Cette action, qui s'adresse au grand public, sera coordonnée avec l'initiative du Conseil de l'Europe, qui a déjà proclamé l'Année 2001 année européenne des langues. "Parler une ou plusieurs langues étrangères donne aux citoyens de nouvelles chances", a déclaré Mme Viviane Reding, Commissaire chargée de l'Education et de la Culture, ajoutant que l'Europe "conservera toujours une grande richesse linguistique et que l'année européenne des langues 2001 s'inscrira dans cette diversité".

    [04] Commission approves merger in temporary employment services sector

    The European Commission has approved the operation by which the Dutch company Vedior N.V. will acquire sole control of the UK company Select Appointments plc. The operation mainly regards the sector of the provision of temporary employment services. Overlaps between the companies' activities are limited to Belgium and France and are too small to have a bearing on the competitive structure of the market.

    [05] Commission acts against Luxembourg, Sweden and Ireland for failing to comply with EU health and safety laws

    The European Commission has decided to issue reasoned opinions against Luxembourg, Sweden and Ireland on the basis of Article 226 of the EC Treaty for failing to comply with EU health and safety Directives.
