  • [01] Chemical pollution : EU ratifies Stockholm POP Convention

    The EU has stepped up efforts to get rid of the world's nastiest chemicals by ratifying the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). This Convention is so far the most important global effort to ban the use of toxic chemicals. EU legislation already implements all its provisions. But by becoming a Party to the Convention, the European Union can push for its efficient implementation all over the world and for inclusion of additional substances to be banned globally. POPs are toxic, persist for generations, can travel long distances and accumulate in human and animal bodies. They have been widely used in industry and as pesticides. Traces of these substances can be found in humans and animals all over the planet. The EU has deposited its ratification instrument with the United Nations in New York and will become a full Party to the Convention 90 days later.

    [02] La Commission autorise le rachat de Magneti Marelli Sistemi Elettronici par FIAT

    La Commission européenne a autorisé le projet de rachat de Magneti Marelli Sistemi Elettronici, un fournisseur de composants électroniques, par Fiat SpA. Cette opération est purement verticale et n'entraîne aucun effet de verrouillage.
