F-Gas report due imminently

The European Parliament’s ‘rapporteur’ is expected to publish his report on the revised F-Gas proposal in the next couple of days.

Bas Eickhout, the EP’s rapporteur on the F-gas Regulation, is expected to make a number of significant amendments to the European Commission’s proposal, which came out in November last year.

European Parliament ‘rapporteurs’ are elected by fellow MEPs when one of Parliament’s committees is assigned to draft up a report on a legislative proposal, another document from the European Commission or a particular subject.

The rapporteur’s key task is to analyse the project, consult with specialists in the particular field and with those who could be affected, discuss with other members within the committee and recommend the political “line” to be followed. All of these considerations flow into the report they submit to the Committee.

These reports contain proposals for resolutions or legislative amendments to be voted on by the entire Parliament.
