(COM(2015) 48 final — 2015/0027 (COD))

(2015/C 268/08)

On 12 February 2015 and 4 March 2015 respectively, the European Parliament and the Council decided to consult the European Economic and Social Committee, under Article 304 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, on the:

Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council protecting against the effects of the extra-territorial application of legislation adopted by a third country and actions based thereon or resulting therefrom (recast)

(COM(2015) 48 final — 2015/0027 (COD)).

Since the Committee unreservedly endorses the proposal and feels that it requires no comment on its part, it decided, at its 506th plenary session of 18 and 19 March 2015 (meeting of 18 March), by 165 votes to one with six abstentions, to issue an opinion endorsing the proposed text.
