No Safeguard Clauses in Brussels Report

Date: 25.09.2006

"The European Commission in its report specifying Bulgaria's accession date will not make the decision to recommend triggering safeguard clauses," said Michael Leigh, Director of EC Enlargement Department for the AFP, emerging after the sitting of the Joint Parliamentary Committee Bulgaria - EU late Wednesday.

The report will be published on September 26. If triggered, the safeguard clauses will exclude Romania and Bulgaria from some community policies. The reports will contain only "analysis on the achievements made" and "recommendation for the accession date". The measures that could be taken "in the event" will be repeated, according to Leigh. He also said that they could be decided upon later. Safeguard clauses can be triggered up to three years after the accession.

Graham Watson, Liberal Democrats Member of the European Parliament believes it is very likely some restrictions will be levied on Bulgaria and Romania after the accession, restrictions in the judicial systems and interior affairs, agriculture and health care. "We believe safeguard clauses are necessary. Their range and character will be discussed," Watson said.

MEP Catherine Guy-Quint who co-chairs the Joint Parliamentary Committee Bulgaria - EU says there is no reason for Bulgaria's EU accession to be postponed for 2008.
