  • [01] Roaming: All mobile operators have now informed the Commission of their new Eurotariffs

    Following the Commission's publication of its "name and shame" roaming benchmarking website on 2 August, all mobile operators have since informed the Commission of the Eurotariffs they are offering their customers as required by the EU’s new Roaming Regulation. All these Eurotariffs are now listed on the Commission's website. For mobile customers roaming in Europe, the first result is quite positive: In 23 of the 27 EU Member States, there is at least one mobile operator offering roaming tariffs below the regulation's ceilings.

    [02] Foot-and-Mouth Disease in GB: Standing Committee supports Commission Decision to reduce control measures to the surveillance zone around the 2 outbreaks

    Following an update on the Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) situation by the UK delegation, the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health today supported unanimously the Commission's draft decision to limit the restrictions on exports of live animals and meat and dairy products, in force until now across Great Britain, to the 10 km surveillance zone in Surrey. This means that exports of live animals, meat and dairy products will be able to resume from the territory of Great Britain, apart from the 10 km zone in Surrey, when the Decision enters into force on 25 August. More than 2 weeks have elapsed since the second and last reported outbreak of FMD in county Surrey, and Member States today expressed their support for the measures taken by the UK, and reinforced by the Commission, to control the recent outbreaks of foot-and-mouth disease.

    [03] Commission clears joint acquisition between Alstom and SBB Cargo

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of joint control of Alstom Rail Service (‘ARS’, Switzerland) by Alstom Schienenfahrzeuge AG (‘Alstom’, Switzerland, part of the Alstom group), and SBB Cargo AG (‘SBB’, Switzerland). Alstom: rail transport equipment, SBB in active in the rail transport services and ARS in the rail transport maintenance services. The operation was examined under the simplified merger review procedure.
