    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-2016-00933-00-00-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.

    Portability of online content services Adopted References: INT/781 EESC-2016-00719-00-00-AC-TRA Referral - Rapporteur: Mr Hernández Bataller (Various interests - GR III) Plenary Session: 516 - 27 Apr 2016 - 28 Apr 2016

    The EESC welcomes the Commission's initiative to address "cross-border portability" through a regulation, but considers it necessary for a subscriber's "Member State of residence" to be clearly defined. The vacatio legis period of six months would be for the EESC a reasonable period for the service providers concerned to adapt their delivery systems to the new situation.

    Company law Adopted References: INT/780 EESC-2016-00895-00-00-AC-TRA Referral - Rapporteur: Mr Pegado Liz (Various interests - GR III / Portugal) Co-rapporteur: Mr Barker and Mr Lefevre Plenary Session: 516 - 27 Apr 2016 - 28 Apr 2016

    The EESC fully supports the consolidation, codification and thereby simplification of the text of the proposal relating to certain aspects of company law. The EESC would also have wished for a more ambitious exercise that aimed to codify aspects that are still spread across other legislative instruments.

    Modernisation of copyright rules Adopted References: INT/774 EESC-2016-00030-00-01-AC-TRA Referral - Rapporteur: Mr Meynent (Workers - GR II / France) Plenary Session: 516 - 27 Apr 2016 - 28 Apr 2016

    In this opinion the EESC regrets that the Commission does not make more specific proposals but simply lists various angles without taking a position on them, which makes it harder to have a well-structured debate. For the EESC, Copyright remains a fundamentally important way to protect and fairly pay authors and those involved in disseminating works and performances via interconnected digital networks.

    Retail financial services and insurance Adopted References: INT/772 EESC-2015-06603-00-00-AC-TRA Referral - Rapporteur: Ms Milena Angelova (Employers - GR I / Bulgaria) Plenary Session: 516 - 27 Apr 2016 - 28 Apr 2016

    With this opinion the EESC takes the opportunity to comment on how the European market for retail financial services can be further opened up. The EESC welcomes that the Commission is on track and has an ambitious programme for implementing the Action Plan on Building a Capital Markets Union, also endorsing that consumers should be given the opportunity, whenever possible, to compare different products, so they can make an informed choice.
