PUBLICATION OF CETAF STATEMENT at EU ABS WEBSITE
On 9 December 2014 the Commission held a meeting to gather input from stakeholders on a discussion paper and its annexes reflecting ideas to be included in the draft ABS Implementing Regulation. Subsequently stakeholders were invited to submit written comments on the paper. CETAF was invited to take part of that consultation, where some other 50 organisations participated.
After that meeting, the CETAF ABS Core team prepared an Statement with the main outcomes and reflections that we understood should be taken into consideration on the draft reviewing of the Implementing Act. That statement was circulated among the Membership on the 16th January 2015, and then sent to the European Commission.
