Abstract

Opinion No 1/2006 on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down the rules for the participation of undertakings, research centres and universities in actions under the Seventh Framework Programme and for the dissemination of research results (2007-2013)
In its Opinion, the Court pays particular attention to the consequences of the measures proposed by the Commission in terms of achieving sound financial management of the indirect actions funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (2007 to 2013). It also takes into account previous resolutions of the European Parliament and the Council, notably in the discharge procedure concerning the financial year 2003 and the 2006 general budget. The Court's observations in this Opinion also refer, in some instances, to the Commission proposal for the 'Decision' concerning the Seventh Framework Programme, and in particular its Annex III defining the different funding schemes.
When the proposal regarding the 'Rules for Participation' was adopted by the Commission in December 2005, the current series of modifications of the Financial Regulation and its Implementing Rules, which will take effect in 2007, had still only been adopted in part by the Council. Under these circumstances, and in view of the observations made in its Opinion No 10/2005, the Court considers it impossible to determine whether this sectoral regulation will comply with the general principles and detailed provisions of a revised Financial Regulation.
By analogy, the Court's observations and conclusion set out in this Opinion should also apply to the Commission proposal for a 'Regulation of the Council determining the rules for the participation of undertakings, research centres and universities and laying down the rules for the dissemination of research results for the implementation of the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) Seventh Framework Programme (2007-2011)'.
