Details

On 29 January 2008, the Commission presented a proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council codifying Third Council Directive 78/855/EEC of 9 October 1978 based on Article 54(3)(g) of the Treaty concerning mergers of public limited liability companies.

In its opinion of 27 February 2008, the Consultative Working Party of the legal services set up under the Interinstitutional Agreement of 20 December 1994 on an accelerated working method for official codification of legislative texts does indeed confine itself to straightforward codification, without any substantive changes to the acts covered by it.

Having regard to the amendments adopted in respect of the proposal and in view of the work already carried out in the course of the legislative procedure, the Commission has decided to present – in accordance with Article 293(2) of the TFEU – an amended proposal for codification of the Directive in question.

This amended proposal also takes account of the purely formal or editorial changes proposed by the Consultative Working Party of the legal services, where these are considered justified.

The European Parliament is once again consulted on this proposal.

CONTENT: the purpose of this proposal is to undertake a codification of Third Council Directive 78/855/EEC of 9 October 1978 based on Article 54(3)(g) of the Treaty concerning mergers of public limited liability companies. The new Directive will supersede the various acts incorporated in it; it fully preserves the content of the acts and hence does no more than bring them together with only such formal amendments as are required by the codification exercise itself.

In its opinion of 27 February 2008, the Consultative Working Party of the legal services set up under the Interinstitutional Agreement of 20 December 1994 on an accelerated working method for official codification of legislative texts does indeed confine itself to straightforward codification, without any substantive changes to the acts covered by it. Having regard to the amendments adopted in respect of the proposal and in view of the work already carried out in the course of the legislative procedure, the Commission has decided to present – in accordance with Article 293(2) of the TFEU – an amended proposal for codification of the Directive in question. This amended proposal also takes account of the purely formal or editorial changes proposed by the Consultative Working Party of the legal services, where these are considered justified. The European Parliament is once again consulted on this proposal.
