  • La Commission décide de ne pas réduire le nombre des écopoints pour 2001
    La Commission a décidé mercredi de ne pas réduire le nombre d’écopoints pour l’année 2001. L’Autriche avait pourtant demandé cette réduction en vertu du principe de la « clause de 108 % ». Alors que les premières statistiques remises par l’Autriche semblaient indiquer un dépassement du seuil de 108 % en 2000, un examen plus approfondi des chiffres a remis en cause ces données: elles n’apportaient aucune preuve de la réalité effective du transit. La Commission a conclu que l’Autriche doit fournir des statistiques claires et sans ambiguïté, prouvant que les transits ont bien eu lieu. En conséquence, la Commission distribuera les écopoints restants pour l’année 2001.

  • Rotterdam veut un ‘level playing field’ pour les contrôles douaniers
    Le secteur privé du port de Rotterdam a à diverses reprises déjà souligné l’importance des contrôles douaniers tout en précisant que leur efficacité reste limitée à défaut d’un ‘level playing field’, c’est-à-dire d’un équilibre en ce qui concerne la fréquence et l’intensité des contrôles. Deltalinqs, l’alliance rotterdamoise des entreprises portuaires et de l’industrie (pétrochimique), vient de réitérer ce point de vue et souligne en outre qu’elle accroîtra ses propres efforts en vue de solutionner le problème. Elle estime que l’absence de contrôles dans d’autres ports européens nuit directemetn à la compétitivité du port de Rotterdam.
