Refused request for registration
Title: Ensuring Common Commercial Policy conformity with EU Treaties and compliance with international law
Date of refusal: 04/09/2019
Language of the request: English

Subject-matter:
Regulating commercial transactions with Occupant’s entities based or operating in occupied territories by withholding products originating from there from entering the EU market

Main objectives:
The Commission, as Guardian of the Treaties, has to ensure consistency of Union’s policy and compliance with fundamental rights and international law in all areas of EU law, including CCP. It must propose legal acts to prevent EU legal entities from both importing products originating in illegal settlements in occupied territories and exporting to such territories, in order to preserve the integrity of the internal market and to not aid or assist the maintenance of such unlawful situations.

Reason for refusal:
The proposed citizens' initiative falls manifestly outside the framework of the Commission's powers to submit a proposal for a legal act of the Union for the purpose of implementing the Treaties.
