Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Regulation (EU, Euratom) No. 883/2013 as regards the establishment of a Controller of procedural guarantees
On 11 June 2014, the European Commission submitted a proposal for a Regulation amending Regulation (EU, Euratom) no. 883/2013 as regards the establishment of a Controller of procedural guarantees (COM(2014) 340 final). This proposal aims at further strengthening the procedural guarantees in place for all persons under investigation by the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) and at taking into account the special way in which members of EU institutions are elected or appointed as well as their special responsibilities. For this purpose, the Regulation 883/2013 on investigations by OLAF will be amended. In this respect, a Controller of procedural guarantees is proposed to: first, review complaints lodged by persons under investigation concerning violation of procedural guarantees; second, authorise OLAF to conduct certain investigative measures with respect to members of EU institutions. The Court of Auditors issued its opinion on 21 November 2014. No recent activity in the Council has been reported and the proposal is awaiting a decision by the LIBE Committee.
