Supplementary protection certificate for medicinal products (A8-0039/2019 - Luis de Grandes Pascual) NL  
 

Ik heb me onthouden van de stemming over het aanvullende beschermingscertificaat voor geneesmiddelen (ABC), omdat ik weliswaar de doelstelling ervan ondersteun, namelijk dat EU-fabrikanten van generieke en biosimilaire geneesmiddelen de mogelijkheid krijgen om tijdens de ABC-periode te exporteren naar landen buiten de EU in plaats van zich te verplaatsen naar een land waar geen ABC bestaat of al is verlopen, maar de trialoog-uitkomst het EP-voorstel betreffende de duur van de voorraadvorming van 24 naar 6 maanden heeft teruggebracht en belangrijke mensenrechtenparagrafen m.b.t. toegang tot geneesmiddelen uit het EP-verslag heeft geschrapt.

Protection of persons reporting on breaches of Union law (A8-0398/2018 - Virginie Rozière) NL  
 

Ik heb me onthouden van stemming over de klokkenluidersrichtlijn. Ik ben namelijk vóór de bescherming van klokkenluiders, maar deze richtlijn regelt wel wat de lidstaten in dit opzicht zouden moeten doen maar stelt juist bij de Europese instellingen geen enkele verbetering voor. Met name het ontbreken van een Europees huis voor klokkenluiders, bijvoorbeeld onder te brengen bij de Europese Ombudsman, vind ik een gemiste kans.

Enforcement requirements and specific rules for posting drivers in the road transport sector (A8-0206/2018 - Merja Kyllönen) NL  
 

Ik heb voor het voorstel van de Commissie vervoer over de detachering in het wegvervoer gestemd omdat er een stap voorwaarts is gezet in de richting van gelijk loon voor gelijk werk. De in het verslag geformuleerde uitzonderingsgevallen op dit beginsel moeten niet leiden tot toename van sociale dumping. Ik wil dat er door strakke handhaving een einde komt aan het gesjoemel in de sector waarvan de chauffeurs de dupe zijn.
