PURPOSE: to conclude the Agreement between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of South Africa, of the other part, amending the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation.

PROPOSED ACT: Council Decision.

BACKGROUND: the Agreement between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of South Africa, of the other part, amending the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation was signed on behalf of the Community and the Member States on 11 September 2009 in Kleinmond, South Africa.

Article 3 of the Agreement establishes that it should be approved by the European Union, by the Member States, and by the Republic of South Africa in accordance with their own procedures.

Following the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon on 1 December 2009, the European Union should make a notification to the Republic of South Africa as regards the European Union having replaced and succeeded the European Community. The Agreement should be approved on behalf of the European Union.

IMPACT ANALYSIS: no impact has been carried out.

LEGAL BASIS: Article 217 in conjunction with Article 218(6)(a) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).

CONTENT: this Decision aims to approve the Agreement between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of South Africa, of the other part, amending the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation, on behalf of the European Union.

For details of the content of the Agreement, please refer to the summary of the document annexed to the procedure dated 01/04/2008.

The draft Decision also specifies that as a consequence of the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon on 1 December 2009, the European Union has replaced and succeeded the European Community and from that date exercises all rights and assumes all obligations of the European Community. Therefore, references to "the European Community" in the text of the Agreement are, where appropriate, to be read as "the European Union".

BUDGETARY IMPLICATION: this proposal has no implication on the EU budget.

PURPOSE: to conclude the Agreement between the EC and its Member States, of the one part, and South Africa, of the other part, amending the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation.

PROPOSED ACT: Council Decision.

BACKGROUND: the above-mentioned Agreement between the EC and its Member States and South Africa (‘TDCA’) entered into force on 1 May 2004. Articles 18 and 103 of the TDCA call for a review of the Agreement within five years of its entry into force. At its meeting of 7 November 2005, the Joint Cooperation Council established the broad lines of the future revision of the TDCA, covering further liberalisation of trade, minor adjustments to the Title on Development Cooperation, updating the wording of several provisions concerning economic cooperation and cooperation in other areas.

On that basis, the Commission submitted a proposal for a negotiating mandate in June 2006. In November 2006 the Council adopted a two-tier Decision giving the Commission two mandates. One was to give guidance to the Commission for revising the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation on the basis of Article 106(1) of the TDCA, which gives the Cooperation Council the power to decide on amendments put forward by any Party. The other was to authorise the opening of negotiations between the Community and its Member States, on the one hand, and the Republic of South Africa, on the other, to revise the Agreement on matters relating to the political dimension of the Agreement and to justice, freedom and security.

However, in the course of the negotiations, for the sake of consistency, both sides agreed to forego the ‘lighter’ procedure of Article 106(1) of the TDCA, and to negotiate a single Agreement amending the TDCA. Consequently, the Commission negotiated this Agreement on the basis of the combined negotiating directives adopted by the Council, and in consultation with the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Working Party and the Africa Working Group. These two bodies were appointed by the Council, according to their respective responsibilities, as the special committees to assist the Commission in its task. The TDCA negotiations on trade and trade-related matters were suspended pending the outcome of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) negotiations. Throughout the negotiations, the Commission ensured that due account was taken of the process for implementing the Strategic Partnership between South Africa and the EU. The agreement was signed on behalf of the Community and Member States on 11 September 2009 in Kleinmond, South Africa in accordance with Council Decision 7437/08.

IMPACT ASSESSMENT: no impact assessment was carried out.

LEGAL BASE: Article 217 in conjunction with Article 218 (6) (a) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU.

CONTENT: following the entry into force of the Treaty on the European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the EU is substituting the European Community for the approval of the agreement. As stipulated in Article 3 of the Agreement, the Parties shall notify each other of the completion of the corresponding approval procedures and the respective instruments of ratification shall be deposited with the General Secretariat of the Council of the EU. As established in Article 4, the Amending Agreement shall enter into force on the first day of the month following the month in which the Parties notify each other that the necessary procedures have been completed.

The current proposal is for a Council Decision concluding the amending agreement. It contains new provisions on terrorism, the International Criminal Court, weapons of mass destruction, mercenaries and small arms . The Commission therefore recommends that the Council adopt the attached Decision.

BUDGETARY IMPLICATION: the proposal has no implications for the Union’s budget.

   CSL - Document attached to the procedure
Details

The Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and South Africa, of the other part, (the "TDCA"), was signed in Pretoria on 11 October 1999, and concluded on 26 April 2004. On 17 November 2006 the Council authorised the Commission to negotiate with South Africa an Agreement between the EC and its Member States, and South Africa amending the TDCA. These negotiations have been concluded to the satisfaction of the Commission. Subject to its possible conclusion at a later stage, it is proposed that the Agreement amending the TDCA should now be signed on behalf of the EC and its Member States.

The main amendments to the TDCA are as follows:

Multilateral disarmament and non-proliferation treaty system: since it is important that progress is made in the implementation of all the obligations deriving from this system, the Parties have included a clause in the agreement, which will allow them to cooperate and to have a political dialogue on these issues.

Respect for democratic principles and fundamental human rights as laid down in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and for the principles of the rule of law, as well as cooperating on issues of disarmament and the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction underpin the internal and international policies of the EU and South Africa and constitute essential elements of the agreement.

There are new provisions in the TDCA on:

Information society and ICTs; Energy cooperation; Maritime transport; Millennium Development Goals; Science and Technology; Culture; Cooperation on Illicit Drugs; Weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery; Combating terrorism; Money laundering and terrorism financing; Combating Organised Crime; Small arms and light weapons; Mercenaries; International Criminal Court; Cooperation on migration.

    • PURPOSE: to conclude the Agreement between the EC and its Member States, of the one part, and South Africa, of the other part, amending the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation.

      PROPOSED ACT: Council Decision.

      BACKGROUND: the above-mentioned Agreement between the EC and its Member States and South Africa (‘TDCA’) entered into force on 1 May 2004. Articles 18 and 103 of the TDCA call for a review of the Agreement within five years of its entry into force. At its meeting of 7 November 2005, the Joint Cooperation Council established the broad lines of the future revision of the TDCA, covering further liberalisation of trade, minor adjustments to the Title on Development Cooperation, updating the wording of several provisions concerning economic cooperation and cooperation in other areas.

      On that basis, the Commission submitted a proposal for a negotiating mandate in June 2006. In November 2006 the Council adopted a two-tier Decision giving the Commission two mandates. One was to give guidance to the Commission for revising the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation on the basis of Article 106(1) of the TDCA, which gives the Cooperation Council the power to decide on amendments put forward by any Party. The other was to authorise the opening of negotiations between the Community and its Member States, on the one hand, and the Republic of South Africa, on the other, to revise the Agreement on matters relating to the political dimension of the Agreement and to justice, freedom and security.

      However, in the course of the negotiations, for the sake of consistency, both sides agreed to forego the ‘lighter’ procedure of Article 106(1) of the TDCA, and to negotiate a single Agreement amending the TDCA. Consequently, the Commission negotiated this Agreement on the basis of the combined negotiating directives adopted by the Council, and in consultation with the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Working Party and the Africa Working Group. These two bodies were appointed by the Council, according to their respective responsibilities, as the special committees to assist the Commission in its task. The TDCA negotiations on trade and trade-related matters were suspended pending the outcome of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) negotiations. Throughout the negotiations, the Commission ensured that due account was taken of the process for implementing the Strategic Partnership between South Africa and the EU. The agreement was signed on behalf of the Community and Member States on 11 September 2009 in Kleinmond, South Africa in accordance with Council Decision 7437/08.

      IMPACT ASSESSMENT: no impact assessment was carried out.

      LEGAL BASE: Article 217 in conjunction with Article 218 (6) (a) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU.

      CONTENT: following the entry into force of the Treaty on the European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the EU is substituting the European Community for the approval of the agreement. As stipulated in Article 3 of the Agreement, the Parties shall notify each other of the completion of the corresponding approval procedures and the respective instruments of ratification shall be deposited with the General Secretariat of the Council of the EU. As established in Article 4, the Amending Agreement shall enter into force on the first day of the month following the month in which the Parties notify each other that the necessary procedures have been completed.

      The current proposal is for a Council Decision concluding the amending agreement. It contains new provisions on terrorism, the International Criminal Court, weapons of mass destruction, mercenaries and small arms. The Commission therefore recommends that the Council adopt the attached Decision.

      BUDGETARY IMPLICATION: the proposal has no implications for the Union’s budget.

      • PURPOSE: to conclude the Agreement between the EC and its Member States, of the one part, and South Africa, of the other part, amending the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation.

        PROPOSED ACT: Council Decision.

        BACKGROUND: the above-mentioned Agreement between the EC and its Member States and South Africa (‘TDCA’) entered into force on 1 May 2004. Articles 18 and 103 of the TDCA call for a review of the Agreement within five years of its entry into force. At its meeting of 7 November 2005, the Joint Cooperation Council established the broad lines of the future revision of the TDCA, covering further liberalisation of trade, minor adjustments to the Title on Development Cooperation, updating the wording of several provisions concerning economic cooperation and cooperation in other areas.

        On that basis, the Commission submitted a proposal for a negotiating mandate in June 2006. In November 2006 the Council adopted a two-tier Decision giving the Commission two mandates. One was to give guidance to the Commission for revising the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation on the basis of Article 106(1) of the TDCA, which gives the Cooperation Council the power to decide on amendments put forward by any Party. The other was to authorise the opening of negotiations between the Community and its Member States, on the one hand, and the Republic of South Africa, on the other, to revise the Agreement on matters relating to the political dimension of the Agreement and to justice, freedom and security.

        However, in the course of the negotiations, for the sake of consistency, both sides agreed to forego the ‘lighter’ procedure of Article 106(1) of the TDCA, and to negotiate a single Agreement amending the TDCA. Consequently, the Commission negotiated this Agreement on the basis of the combined negotiating directives adopted by the Council, and in consultation with the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Working Party and the Africa Working Group. These two bodies were appointed by the Council, according to their respective responsibilities, as the special committees to assist the Commission in its task. The TDCA negotiations on trade and trade-related matters were suspended pending the outcome of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) negotiations. Throughout the negotiations, the Commission ensured that due account was taken of the process for implementing the Strategic Partnership between South Africa and the EU. The agreement was signed on behalf of the Community and Member States on 11 September 2009 in Kleinmond, South Africa in accordance with Council Decision 7437/08.

        IMPACT ASSESSMENT: no impact assessment was carried out.

        LEGAL BASE: Article 217 in conjunction with Article 218 (6) (a) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU.

        CONTENT: following the entry into force of the Treaty on the European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the EU is substituting the European Community for the approval of the agreement. As stipulated in Article 3 of the Agreement, the Parties shall notify each other of the completion of the corresponding approval procedures and the respective instruments of ratification shall be deposited with the General Secretariat of the Council of the EU. As established in Article 4, the Amending Agreement shall enter into force on the first day of the month following the month in which the Parties notify each other that the necessary procedures have been completed.

      • PURPOSE: to conclude the Agreement between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of South Africa, of the other part, amending the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation.

        PROPOSED ACT: Council Decision.

        BACKGROUND: the Agreement between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of South Africa, of the other part, amending the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation was signed on behalf of the Community and the Member States on 11 September 2009 in Kleinmond, South Africa.

        Article 3 of the Agreement establishes that it should be approved by the European Union, by the Member States, and by the Republic of South Africa in accordance with their own procedures.

        Following the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon on 1 December 2009, the European Union should make a notification to the Republic of South Africa as regards the European Union having replaced and succeeded the European Community. The Agreement should be approved on behalf of the European Union.

        IMPACT ANALYSIS: no impact has been carried out.

        LEGAL BASIS: Article 217 in conjunction with Article 218(6)(a) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).

        CONTENT: this Decision aims to approve the Agreement between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of South Africa, of the other part, amending the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation, on behalf of the European Union.

        For details of the content of the Agreement, please refer to the summary of the document annexed to the procedure dated 01/04/2008.

        The draft Decision also specifies that as a consequence of the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon on 1 December 2009, the European Union has replaced and succeeded the European Community and from that date exercises all rights and assumes all obligations of the European Community. Therefore, references to "the European Community" in the text of the Agreement are, where appropriate, to be read as "the European Union".

        BUDGETARY IMPLICATION: this proposal has no implication on the EU budget.
