Drawn up pursuant to Rule 37a of the Rules of Procedure on the use of delegated acts, in the context of Parliament’s scrutiny of the Approximation of the laws, regulations and administrative provisions of the Member States concerning the manufacture, presentation and sale of tobacco and related products.
In response to Commission proposals concerning delegated acts under Article 18 [now Article 20] of the revised TPD, JURI concluded:
“In view of the public health aim, the question of level of harmful substances touches upon essential elements. The scope of potential prohibition is unlimited.”
“The wording of the warning text, which is proposed to be specified in the basic act, clearly touches upon essential elements.”
Therefore, they voted to delete these proposals, stating that it was:
“...not appropriate to delegate. Should be specified in the basic act.”
Further information on the JURI Committee’s Opinion concerning the delegated acts can be found in their Opinion of 25th June 2013.
