    European standardisation 2016 Adopted References: INT/783 EESC-2016-01070-00-00-ac-tra Referral - Rapporteur: Mr Liebus (Employers - GR I / France) Plenary Session: 517 - 25 May 2016 - 26 May 2016

    In this opinion, the EESC wishes to focus most of its efforts on the transparency and inclusiveness of the European standardisation system (ESS) and proposes concrete measures, such as: to grant the Annex III organisations specific member/partner status, with particular rights and obligations; to introduce free access to “mirror committees” for SMEs and societal stakeholders; to create an ad hoc forum on the inclusiveness of the ESS responsible for organising an annual public hearing to assess progress made in this regard.

    Sharing economy and self-regulation Adopted References: INT/779 EESC-2016-00933-00-01-AC-TRA Exploratory Opinion Rapporteur: Mr Jorge Pegado Liz (Various interests - GR III / Portugal) Plenary Session: 517 - 25 May 2016 - 26 May 2016

    Defining the sharing economy makes it possible to distinguish between genuine practices requiring special arrangements and those that are wrongly classified merely to get around applicable regulations. New business models need to comply with the applicable national and EU legislation, so the Commission must urgently define a clear and transparent legal framework and publish without further delay the long overdue 'European agenda for the collaborative economy'. This agenda should provide a clear definition of the complementary role that self- and co-regulation must play in the sharing economy.

    Innovation as a driver of new business models Adopted References: INT/778 EESC-2016-00078-ac-tra Exploratory Opinion Rapporteur: Ms Ariane Rodert (Various interests - GR III / Sweden) Co-rapporteur: Mr Oliver Röpke (Workers - GR II / Austria) Plenary Session: 517 - 25 May 2016 - 26 May 2016

    Europe is facing complex challenges calling for renewed social and economic models. To deliver progress, growth and wellbeing in Europe, a shift towards an innovation-based economy is needed. The EESC therefore calls on the European Commission to develop a policy framework to support these new business models emerging. The EESC calls on the Commission in the upcoming review of the Single Market strategy, due in 2017, to fully incorporate these new business models, and suggest new measures in this direction. It is crucial that Member States and the European Institutions fully recognise and promote "fairer" business models, which are centred on delivering innovation for social development by integrating social impact measurement in parallel to reporting economic progress.
