Information on parliamentary scrutiny

The Committee on the Economy discussed the proposal at its 54th extraordinary meeting of 10 June 2014.

And at it's 112th meeting of 20 June 2014 the Committee on EU Affairs of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the following Position

The Republic of Slovenia supports the efforts made at the European level to create a modern and efficient corporate governance framework. In such regard, the Republic of Slovenia in principle supports the purpose and objectives of the Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on amending Directive 2007/36/EC as regards the encouragement of long-term shareholder engagement and Directive 2013/34/EU as regards certain elements of the corporate governance statement, particularly in terms of enhancing transparency and shareholders oversight and their long-term engagement, increasing the level and quality of engagement of asset owners and asset managers, and ensuring reliability and quality of advice of proxy advisors. The proposed measures, however, raise concerns as regards the proportionality of measures and new commitments.
Given the need to thoroughly examine the text and the implications of the proposed measures, we express a scrutiny and linguistic reservation on the Proposal.
