  • [01] Better protection from sun after Commission action

    Consumers will benefit from a new clearer labelling regime on sunscreen bottles being phased in this summer. The new labels –including a new UV-A logo or seal on bottles and a ban on misleading terms such as "sunblocker" or "total protection" - are a response to a European Commission recommendation on sunscreen products agreed in September 2006. As well as explaining the new sunscreen labelling system, the Commission, through an information campaign in partnership with Member States is seeking to raise awareness that there are several reasons why sunscreen products should be only one out of a number of measures which are necessary to protect from the UV radiation of the sun. The improved labelling regime is being phased in and will appear on 20% of sunscreen bottles this summer.

    [02] Protection des intérêts financiers de l'UE : coopération accrue avec les Etats membres

    (! embargo 12h30 !) La Commission européenne a publié aujourd'hui le rapport annuel 2006 concernant la protection des intérêts financiers des Communautés et la lutte contre la fraude. Il s'agit d'un domaine de responsabilité partagée entre la Commission et les Etats membres. Le rapport présente les mesures les plus importantes prises en 2006 par les Etats membres et la Commission afin d'améliorer la prévention et la lutte contre la fraude. Une évaluation statistique de toutes les irrégularités communiquées la Commission par les Etats membres montre que le nombre total des irrégularités a augmenté pour l'agriculture, les fonds de cohésion et de préadhésion, et qu'il a diminué pour les ressources propres et les fonds structurels. Alors que plus de 12.000 irrégularités ont été communiquées, l'amélioration de la rapidité et de la qualité de la communication reste un objectif.

    [03] Commission clears joint venture between Deutsche Bank, STRABAG Invest and Dimitri Garkusha

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of joint control of a newly created company constituting a joint venture by Deutsche Bank AG of Germany, STRABAG Invest GmbH, a subsidiary of STRABAG SE Wien of Austria and Mr Dmitri Garkusha of Russia. Deutsche Bank is active in banking, finance and related services. STRABAG Invest is active in investment in civil engineering projects, project development, building construction and the production of building materials. Mr Dmitri Garkusha is a Russian citizen who provides consulting services on the financing of real estate projects in Moscow. The operation was examined under the simplified merger review procedure.

    [04] Migration Management – Solidarity in Action : new EU financial support to be made available in 2007

    Following the adoption of the 2007 Work Programme for the new Preparatory Action Solidarity in Action, two call for proposals - accounting for a total of €14,000,000 - are being launched today for actions in the areas of return of illegal immigrants, employment of returnees, information on immigration and reception challenges.

    [05] Trans-Sahara Gas Pipeline conference : future possibilities for diversification of EU energy supply

    European Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs participated as a keynote speaker at a conference on the Trans-Saharan Gas Pipeline project which could supply gas from Nigeria to Europe through Niger and Algeria. In his speech, Commissioner Piebalgs emphasized the importance of energy cooperation through the existing Euromed framework and the forthcoming EU- Africa Energy Partnership and underlined that the diversification of suppliers and routes is a key part of the EU's strategy for the security of energy supply.
