Logros de la Comisión de Peticiones durante la legislatura 2014-2019 y retos para el futuro

03-07-2019

Durante la legislatura 2014-19, la Unión y, en particular, el Parlamento Europeo, a través de su Comisión de Peticiones (PETI), ha seguido defendiendo el derecho de los ciudadanos a presentar peticiones al Parlamento Europeo para plantear cuestiones y preocupaciones y pedir reparación y medidas en ámbitos de competencia de la Unión, movilizando a las instituciones y a los Estados miembros tanto en relación con las cuestiones que ocupan un lugar central en el debate político como con las cuestiones ...

Durante la legislatura 2014-19, la Unión y, en particular, el Parlamento Europeo, a través de su Comisión de Peticiones (PETI), ha seguido defendiendo el derecho de los ciudadanos a presentar peticiones al Parlamento Europeo para plantear cuestiones y preocupaciones y pedir reparación y medidas en ámbitos de competencia de la Unión, movilizando a las instituciones y a los Estados miembros tanto en relación con las cuestiones que ocupan un lugar central en el debate político como con las cuestiones «huérfanas» o «latentes». Con el fin de servir mejor a los ciudadanos de la Unión, la comisión ha desarrollado un Portal de Peticiones para facilitar la presentación de peticiones y aumentar la interacción y los servicios de información. Adoptó directrices nuevas y actualizadas para facilitar la tramitación de las peticiones y el proceso de toma de decisiones de la comisión. También ha conseguido introducir algunos cambios positivos en el Reglamento interno del PE. La cooperación con otras comisiones del PE fue reforzada y mejorada, en particular a través de la creación de una Red de Peticiones. Por primera vez, la Comisión PETI creó un grupo de trabajo especial, el Grupo de Trabajo sobre Asuntos Relativos al Bienestar Infantil, que era responsable de investigar una serie de peticiones sobre los derechos de los niños y de informar a la comisión por medio de recomendaciones. La Comisión PETI mantuvo buenas relaciones laborales con la Comisión, el Consejo, los Estados miembros y el Defensor del Pueblo Europeo. Trabajó en estrecha colaboración con los servicios del PE, en particular con el Servicio Jurídico del Parlamento Europeo, y aumentó exponencialmente el uso de la experiencia de investigación del Departamento Temático de Derechos de los Ciudadanos y Asuntos Constitucionales para estudios y talleres, así como del EPRS. Además, en la legislatura 2014-2019, organizó un gran número de audiencias públicas. A su vez, la comisión consiguió mantener la actividad parlamentaria global notablemente estable al comparar el número de informes, opiniones, preguntas orales, resoluciones y visitas de información realizadas durante las legislaturas 2014-2019 y 2009-2014 (véase el anexo 1). En este contexto, la Comisión PETI siguió examinando un gran número de peticiones que planteaban problemas en todos los ámbitos de actividad de la Unión: derechos fundamentales, migración, derecho de petición, ciudadanía, libre circulación, discriminación, Iniciativa Ciudadana Europea; derechos del niño, medio ambiente, bienestar de los animales, discapacidad, política social y empleo, Brexit, mejora de la legislación y aplicación de la legislación de la Unión, apertura, transparencia, acceso a los documentos, conflictos de intereses, y acuerdos internacionales. La Comisión PETI también trató algunos temas muy específicos, por ejemplo, la legislación hipotecaria y los instrumentos financieros de riesgo. Debido a su importante papel en la detección de violaciones de los derechos de las personas con discapacidad (la llamada «función de protección» dentro del marco de la Unión establecido para aplicar la Convención de las Naciones Unidas sobre los Derechos de las Personas con Discapacidad a escala de la Unión y de los Estados miembros), la Comisión PETI ha dedicado mucha atención al tema de la discapacidad.

This study, commissioned by the PETI Committee of the European Parliament, provides a brief overview of the relevant EU labelling legislation Member States have to comply with, with regard to labelling of food, including organic products, for consumers, with emphasis on the requirements of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011. It critically assesses these laws and discusses progress - or lack thereof -, in particular with regard to aspects such as safety, health effects, effects for disabled people, etc. It explores and elaborates on the question of whether the current labelling requirements actually result in clearer information to help citizens to better understand the composition and health effects of food. The study also provides brief analyses/assessments of several petitions provided by the PETI Committee. Where possible, this study makes (policy) recommendations for EU institutions and/or Member States, taking into account their respective remits.

This analytical study focuses on the legal and practical / ethical dimensions of the appointment of senior-level officials in the European Union (EU) institutions, and a selection of Member States and different European / international organisations. Focusing on the four instances of maladministration identified by the European Ombudsman with regard to the appointment of the new Secretary-General (SG) of the European Commission (EC), this study recommends inter alia that a special appointment procedure should be adopted for the appointment of the SG of the EC; amending Articles 7 and Article 29 of the Staff Regulations to improve their clarity and limit chances of misapplication / maladministration; for the Ombudsman to be capable of bringing a judicial review procedure; looking into the possible ways in which EU citizens and organisations may be involved in shaping the institutional policies on appointments; promoting the professionalisation of selection committees; addressing inefficiencies in appointment procedures and clarifying criteria (on exceptions, publication of vacancies etc.); enhancing the transparency of appointment procedures and strengthening independent monitoring of appointment procedures; broadening the choice of candidates; considering the introduction of external independent expertise in appointment procedures; a role for the European Parliament, e.g. pre-appointment hearings of SG; and clarifying existing conflict of interest requirements.

This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the PETI Committee, aims at gaining deeper insights into the legal aspects of cross border nuclear safety and cooperation in the European Union. It analyses the legal framework of nuclear safety as well as the liability and insurance schemes for nuclear accidents. The study examines the current liability and insurance framework and formulates possibilities for a further involvement of the EU in the liability regime. Specific attention is paid to citizen and NGO involvement in decision-making concerning nuclear power plants. The study analyses the case law in that respect and formulates various recommendations to improve the regime concerning cross-border nuclear safety, liability and corporation in the EU.
