Follow us: | | Tweet


The Council is developing its negotiating position on the proposed Asylum Procedures Regulation, part of the legislation on the revamped Common European Asylum System. There are 300 footnotes showing Member States' positions, many of which have been deleted in the censored version officially published by the Council.

See: Council of the European Union: Proposal for a Regulation establishing a common procedure for international protection in the Union and repealing Directive 2013/32/EU (LIMITE doc no: 5296/18,156 pages, pdf)

"The Presidency deems it is important to issue a document that contains a larger number of compromise proposals in order to provide delegations with the opportunity to follow the changes and the links between the relevant provisions. (...)

Suggested modifications are indicated as follows:

- new text compared to the Commission proposal is in bold;
- new text compared to the previous version is in bold underline;
- deleted text is in strikethrough.

Comments made by delegations orally and in writing, as well as explanations given by the Commission and the Presidency appear in the footnotes of the Annex."
