Information on parliamentary scrutiny

At its 105th regular meeting on 9 September 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 Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on recreational craft and personal watercraft.

 

The National Assembly's Committee on Economy as the working body responsible discussed the above mentioned Proposal at its 38th meeting on 6 September 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 efforts for the reduction of exhaust emissions from propulsion engines in recreational craft and personal watercraft. It also supports the Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on recreational craft and personal watercraft.

 

The Republic of Slovenia agrees that a transitional period for engine manufacturers is provided in order to reduce emissions. In addition, small and medium sized engine manufacturers are to be granted a specific transitional period.

 

The Republic of Slovenia agrees with keeping the current limit values for noise emissions from propulsion engines, and supports the possibility to enforce specific national measures, specifically designed for the areas in which watercraft is used.

 

The Republic of Slovenia also supports the efforts for clearer safety provisions applying to recreational craft and personal watercraft.

 

Concerning possible open questions which may arise during the discussion (such as different time limits to introduce new requirements, a longer period to transpose the Directive into national law, a possibility to delay a gradual transition to stricter standards, delegated acts etc.), we are flexible as regards reaching a compromise.
