ANNEX TO THE LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION

Commission declaration on microplastics

 

The Commission acknowledges that microplastics are substances of emerging concern in relation to water quality. In the light hereof, and considering that this is a general issue not limited to reclaimed water only, the Commission undertakes to pursue its efforts to further address this important issue.

 

SHORT JUSTIFICATION

The Council position at first reading reflects the agreement reached between the Parliament and the Council in interinstitutional negotiations at early second reading stage, after legal-linguistic verification. Since the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI), at its vote of 21 January 2020, already confirmed the outcome of those interinstitutional negotiations, as your rapporteur I am proposing that ENVI recommend that the Plenary confirm the position of the Council at first reading, without amending it.
