COM(2008) 25 final — 2008/0008 (COD)

(2008/C 211/04)

On 7 March 2008 the Council of the European Union decided to consult the European Economic and Social Committee, under Article 95 of the Treaty establishing the European Community, on the

Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on roll-over protection structures of wheeled agricultural or forestry tractors (static testing) (Codified version).

Since the Committee unreservedly endorses the content of the proposal and feels that it requires no comment on its part, it decided, at its 444th plenary session of 22 and 23 April 2008 (meeting of 22 April), by 143 votes and 6 abstentions, to issue an opinion endorsing the proposed text.
