Details

The European Parliament adopted by 583 votes to 16, with 20 abstentions, a legislative resolution on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on computerising the movement and surveillance of excise goods (recast).

The European Parliament adopted its position at first reading under the ordinary legislative procedure without amending the Commission's proposal.

According to the Consultative Working Party of the legal services of the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission, the Commission proposal does not include any substantive amendments other than those identified as such in the proposal and whereas, as regards the codification of the unchanged provisions of the earlier acts together with those amendments, the proposal contains a straightforward codification of the existing texts, without any change in their substance.

The proposal to recast Decision No 1152/2003/EC establishing the computerised system for the movement and control of excise products (EMCS) aims to provide a basis for the governance of the further automation of the procedures laid down in EU excise duty legislation.

In practical terms, the proposal aims to extend the computerised system for the movement and control of excise goods to intra-Union movements of excise goods released for consumption.

Specifically, the computerised system is intended to:

- permit the electronic transmission of the accompanying documents and the improvement of checks;

- improve the functioning of the internal market, by simplifying the intra-Union movement of excise goods and affording Member States the possibility of monitoring the flows in real time and of carrying out the requisite checks where necessary.

Activities relating to the initiation of extension of the computerised system shall begin by 12 months after the date of entry into force of this Decision.

The Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs adopted the report by Kay SWINBURNE (ECR, UK) on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on computerising the movement and surveillance of excise goods (recast).

The committee recommended that the European Parliament adopt its position at first reading by taking over the Commission's proposal and taking account of the recommendations of the Consultative Working Party of the Legal Services of the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission.

The Consultative Working Party of the Legal Services of the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission considers that the Commission proposal does not contain any substantive amendments other than those identified as such in the proposal and that it is limited to a straightforward codification of existing texts, without changing their substance.

The proposal accompanies the proposal for a Council Directive establishing the general arrangements for excise duty with regard to the automation of the procedure for the movement of excise goods which have been released for consumption in the territory of a Member State and which are moved to the territory of another Member State in order to be supplied for commercial purposes in that other Member State.

PURPOSE: to provide a base for the governance of further automations of processes defined by Union excise legislation.

PROPOSED ACT: Council Decision.

ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council.

BACKGROUND: Decision No 1152/2003/EC is the founding decision for the computerised system ( Excise Movement and Control System – EMCS). At the moment it covers only movements of excise goods under excise duty suspension.

In order to allow the automation of the procedure for the movement of excise goods which have been released for consumption in the territory of one Member State and moved to the territory of another Member State in order to be delivered for commercial purposes in that other Member State, Decision No 1152/2003/EC has to be modified. Since most provisions of the Decisions are affected by such modification, the Decision should be recast in the interests of clarity.

This proposal accompanies the proposal for a Council Directive laying down the general arrangement for excise duty as regards the automation of the procedure for movements of excise goods which have been released for consumption in the territory of one Member State and that are moved to the territory of another Member State in order to be delivered for commercial purposes in that other Member State.

CONTENT: the objective of the proposal is to extend the excise movement and control system to intra EU movements of excise goods that are released for consumption , in order to simplify the procedure and allow for proper monitoring of such movements, and to provide a base for the governance of further automations of processes defined by Union excise legislation, where such automation is considered beneficial.

It is proposed to amend most of the provisions of Decision No 1152/2003/EC so as to allow the possibility of automating any procedure used for the movement and control of excise goods.

Specifically, the computerised system is intended to:

permit the electronic transmission of the accompanying documents and the improvement of checks; improve the functioning of the internal market, by simplifying the intra-Union movement of excise goods and affording Member States the possibility of monitoring the flows in real time and of carrying out the requisite checks where necessary.

In practical terms, the proposal aims to extend the computerised system for the movement and control of excise goods to intra-Union movements of excise goods released for consumption. Specifically, the computerised system is intended to: - permit the electronic transmission of the accompanying documents and the improvement of checks; - improve the functioning of the internal market, by simplifying the intra-Union movement of excise goods and affording Member States the possibility of monitoring the flows in real time and of carrying out the requisite checks where necessary. Activities relating to the initiation of extension of the computerised system shall begin by 12 months after the date of entry into force of this Decision.

  • PURPOSE: to provide a base for the governance of further automations of processes defined by Union excise legislation.

    PROPOSED ACT: Council Decision.

    ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council.

    BACKGROUND: Decision No 1152/2003/EC is the founding decision for the computerised system (Excise Movement and Control System – EMCS). At the moment it covers only movements of excise goods under excise duty suspension.

    In order to allow the automation of the procedure for the movement of excise goods which have been released for consumption in the territory of one Member State and moved to the territory of another Member State in order to be delivered for commercial purposes in that other Member State, Decision No 1152/2003/EC has to be modified. Since most provisions of the Decisions are affected by such modification, the Decision should be recast in the interests of clarity.

    This proposal accompanies the proposal for a Council Directive laying down the general arrangement for excise duty as regards the automation of the procedure for movements of excise goods which have been released for consumption in the territory of one Member State and that are moved to the territory of another Member State in order to be delivered for commercial purposes in that other Member State.

    CONTENT: the objective of the proposal is to extend the excise movement and control system to intra EU movements of excise goods that are released for consumption, in order to simplify the procedure and allow for proper monitoring of such movements, and to provide a base for the governance of further automations of processes defined by Union excise legislation, where such automation is considered beneficial.

    It is proposed to amend most of the provisions of Decision No 1152/2003/EC so as to allow the possibility of automating any procedure used for the movement and control of excise goods.

    Specifically, the computerised system is intended to:

    • permit the electronic transmission of the accompanying documents and the improvement of checks;
    • improve the functioning of the internal market, by simplifying the intra-Union movement of excise goods and affording Member States the possibility of monitoring the flows in real time and of carrying out the requisite checks where necessary.
