Catalog N. :KE-04-15-555-EN-N

The European Reference Budgets Network is a project financed by the European Commission that aims to develop cross- national, comparable reference budgets in all EU Member States. Reference budgets are baskets of goods and services considered necessary for an individual household to reach an acceptable standard of living within a given country, region or city.
Preparing reference budgets with a common methodology can help EU Member States to design effective and adequate income support measures and to encourage mutual learning and the exchange of best practices. More information about the project as well as the full country reports can be found on the European Commission website: http://europa.eu/!CC79TD

Poverty Dynamics in Europe: From What to Why - Working Paper 03/2015  (20/11/2015)

Catalog N. :KE-EW-15-003-EN-N

This working paper looks at poverty dynamics in Europe. Analysing poverty dynamics, i.e. incorporating time dimension to the analysis, helps to better understand the characteristics and various facets of poverty. In addition to looking at persistent poverty, it is important to look at the probability of exiting and entering poverty in different groups of the population and at poverty trajectories of the poor. This working paper presents empirical evidence on various issues related to poverty dynamics based on EU-SILC longitudinal data spanning from 2008 to 2012.

Catalog N. :KE-04-15-140-EN-N

The Directive 2013/35/EU lays down the minimum safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to risks arising from electromagnetic fields (EMF). This practical guide has been prepared to assist employers, particularly small to medium sized enterprises, to understand what they will need to do to comply with the Directive. However, it may also be useful for workers, workers representations and regulatory authorities in Member States. It consists of two volumes and a specific guide for SMEs.

The practical guide volume 1 provides advice on carrying out risk assessment and further advice on the options that may be available where employers need to implement additional protective or preventive measures.

Volume 2 presents twelve case studies that show employers how to approach assessments and illustrate some of the preventive and protective measures that might be selected and implemented. The case studies are presented in the context of generic workplaces, but were compiled from real work situations.

The guide for SMEs will assist you to carry out an initial assessment of the risks from EMF in your workplace. Based on the outcome of this assessment, it will help you decide whether you need to take any further action as a result of the EMF Directive. This publication will be available in electronic format in all EU official languages.

Non-binding guide to good practice for implementing Directive 2013/35/EU Electromagnetic Fields - Guide for SMEs  (11/11/2015)

Catalog N. :KE-04-15-142-EN-N

This guide is designed to help you understand how the work you carry out may be affected by the EMF Directive. It is not legally binding and does not provide an interpretation of specific legal requirements that you may have to comply with. It should therefore be read in conjunction with the EMF Directive, the Framework Directive (89/391/EEC) and relevant national legislation. This guide is designed so that employers who are already compliant will be able to establish the risks quickly.

More detailed information, including on exposure assessment and preventive measures, can be found in the comprehensive non-binding guide to good practice for implementing Directive 2013/35/EU.

This publication is available in electronic and printed format in all EU official languages.
