Information on parliamentary scrutiny

Referred to the Senate Committee on Public Works and Communications, with opinions solicited from the European Union Policies Committee and the Foreign Affairs and Emigration Committee.
Scrutiny is referred also to COM (2011) 895.

On 11 July 2011, the Standing Committee issued a favourable opinion with qualifications, recommending a new wording for the second sentence of Article 56(3), based on whether a reason should be required for any limitation based on a company's turnover.

A negative qualification was issued with respect to the indefinite duration of the delegation of power under Art. 290 TFEU.

Following failure of the Public Works Committee to issue an opinion within 15 days of receiving the EU Policies Committee's opinion, the EU Policies Committee closed scrutiny on 18 December 2012. Its previous opinion was thus upgraded to resolution status and transmitted to the Government under Senate Rule 144(5).
