Information on parliamentary scrutiny

At its 111th regular meeting on 14 October 2011, the Committee on EU Affairs of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia discussed the draft position of the Republic of Slovenia on the Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the Common Organisation of the Markets in Fishery and Aquaculture Products.

 

The National Assembly's Committee on Agriculture, Forestry and Food as the working body responsible discussed the above mentioned Proposal at its 25th extraordinary meeting on 13 October 2011 and forwarded its opinion to our Committee.

 

The Committee on EU Affairs of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the following Position of the Republic of Slovenia:

 

The Republic of Slovenia supports the Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the common organisation of the markets in fishery and aquaculture products.

 

Moreover, the Republic of Slovenia believes that the Proposal should offer a possibility for alternative forms of associations of fishery or aquaculture producers, which could be financed by the EU and which would be suitable for small fisheries sector, such as Slovenian.

 

The Republic of Slovenia therefore supports the possibility to establish associations of commercial sea fishery or aquaculture producers, whereby the market activity would not present an excluding condition and whereby the membership of active commercial sea fishery and aquaculture producers would be the main criterion. Associations could carry out tasks which are not related solely to the common access to the market but are of wider importance for the organisation of fishery and aquaculture, such as presentation of members to state and EU institutions; fishery discard management; informing the members of novelties in relation to fishery management and aquaculture management; education and training of members; participation in the implementation of measures for sustainable development of fishery and aquaculture.

 

As regards the proposed provisions on delegated powers of the Commission, the Republic of Slovenia believes that, in the framework of the Proposal for a Regulation on the common organisation of the markets, a discussion on delegated powers of the Commission is necessary, particularly about whether areas, for which the Commission proposes the possibility of adopting delegated acts, are perhaps considered to be the essential elements of the Proposal for a Regulation and whether it is more appropriate to amend some of the proposed areas with the implementing acts of the Commission (Article 291 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union). In addition, it is reasonable to limit in time the power to adopt delegated acts, whereby it is possible to limit the validity of delegated acts to five years. The Commission should prepare a report six months before the expiry of the five-year period. After the expiry of the five-year period, delegated powers would (only) be valid if they were not revoked by the Council or the European Parliament.
