  • [01] La Commission a presque terminé le réexamen des pesticides : 110 substances supplémentaires seront retirées

    Un total de 110 substances supplémentaires utilisées dans les produits phytopharmaceutiques, comprenant les insecticides, les fongicides et les herbicides, doivent être retirées du marché d'ici décembre 2003 dans le cadre de la nouvelle approche de la Commission européenne en matière d'évaluation des substances actives utilisées dans les produits phytopharmaceutiques. Ces 110 substances viennent s'ajouter aux 320 qui doivent être retirées du marché en juillet 2003.

    [02] Commission welcomes determination expressed by 30 Ministers to accelerate eGovernment

    Lucio Stanca, Italian Minister for Innovation and Technology, today issued a ministerial declaration on behalf of the Italian Presidency, proposing concrete measures to accelerate the move to eGovernment. The declaration was agreed by the 30 EU, EFTA and accession countries Ministers attending the second European conference on eGovernment 7 and 8 July. Ministers were able to see for themselves the best of eGovernment practices already implemented in Europe and the benefits these are bringing to all concerned. As a result, they have jointly expressed their determination to further accelerate exchanges of practical experiences, and proposed concrete measures to be taken towards widespread deployment of eGovernment. This declaration was the result of a ministerial meeting that took place within the conference, in the presence of Erkki Liikanen Commissioner for Enterprise and the Information Society. Ministers have specifically asked the Presidency to present their declaration to the next meeting of the Telecommunications and Information Society Council.

    [03] Services de la société de l'information : la Commission propose l'adhésion à la Convention du Conseil de l'Europe

    La Commission européenne a présenté une proposition de décision du Conseil de ministres de l'Union européenne pour la signature et la conclusion par l'UE de la Convention n°180 du Conseil de l'Europe. Cette Convention instaure un mécanisme international de notification préalable des réglementations nationales en matière de services en ligne, qui est inspiré du système communautaire de transparence législative introduit en la matière par la directive 98/34/CE (voir IP/03/227). L'objectif de la Convention est de favoriser dans la mesure du possible la transparence et la cohérence des règles nationales s'appliquant aux services de société d'information, qui par définition sont souvent fournis à travers les frontières.

    [04] Middle East : Commission grants €10 million in humanitarian aid for Palestinians

    The European Commission has approved a €10 million humanitarian aid package to support victims of the crisis in the Palestinian Territories and Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. The funds, allocated via the Commission's Humanitarian Aid Office (ECHO), which comes under the responsibility of Commissioner Poul Nielson, will help meet the basic food, health, household, water/sanitation and protection needs of vulnerable groups. The programme will be implemented by ECHO's usual partners such as non-governmental organisations and the International Committee of the Red Cross. ECHO has a long-standing humanitarian commitment to vulnerable people in the Middle East. With this latest funding decision, its support for victims of the ongoing crisis since the start of the second Intifada in September 2000 has now topped €100 million.
