At that meeting[4], an examination of the proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council codifying Regulation (EC) No 924/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 September 2009 on cross-border payments in the Community and repealing Regulation (EC) No 2560/2001 resulted in the Consultative Working Party’s establishing, by common accord, that in point 5 of Article 2 the indication ‘points (4) to (23)’ should be adapted so as to read ‘points (2) to (23)’.

 

In consequence, examination of the proposal has enabled the Consultative Working Party to conclude, without dissent, that the proposal is a straightforward codification of existing texts, without any change in their substance.
