The Committee for European Affairs at its 55th meeting on 22/9/2016 by Resolution No. 307


1. rejects submitted legislative acts;


2. considers that decisions about the level of participation in resettlement programs should be voluntary and in the competence of the Member States and disagrees with the compulsory redistribution mechanisms;


3. rejects the inclusion of persons with socio-economic vulnerability in the category of vulnerable persons who are eligible for targeted Union resettlement schemes pursuant to the Article 5 (b) of the Proposal for a Regulation on the establishing Resettlement Framework;


4. disagrees with the authorization given to the Commission to adopt targeted Union resettlement schemes in the form of implementing Act;


5. disagrees with the chosen legal instrument concerning the Qualification Regulation, since it considers that the declared purpose could be achieved through a directive, which allows the Member States to reflect better their legal systems when implementing;


6. supports the introduction of the obligation of regular review whether the situation of beneficiaries of protection status has not been changed and the obligation to reside in a Member State which granted protection; and also supports the introduction of the sanction for breach of this obligation that the draft Qualification Regulation inserts into Long-term Residents Directive 2003/109 / EC;


7. disagrees that Member States should be required to take into account operational standards on reception conditions and indicators developed by the European Asylum Support Office / the European Union Agency for Asylum;


8. takes note of  the issue of integration of applicants for international protection and their access to the labour market should be within the competence of the Member States;


9. believes that the draft Asylum Procedures Regulation have insufficient added value and its adoption as a regulation is not justified, since the declared goals could be achieved through a directive;


10. takes note of that the draft Asylum Procedures Regulation does not contain sufficient anti- abuse measures of the asylum system;


11. nominates the Chairperson of the Committee for European Affairs to submit this resolution to the President of the European Commission in the context of the political dialogue.
