Status Agreement With The European Commission

4. The agreement may be denounced by written agreement between the parties or unilaterally by a contracting party. In the latter case, the party it wishes to denounce shall inform the other party in writing. The termination shall take effect on the first day of the month following that of notification. 4. The members of the team shall enjoy immunity from the civil and administrative jurisdiction [of a third country] in all acts they have committed in the performance of their official duties. Where members of the team are the subject of civil proceedings before a court [of a third country], the Executive Director of the Agency and the competent authority of the home Member State shall be immediately informed. Before the opening of proceedings before the courts, the Executive Director of the Agency and the competent authority of the home Member State shall certify to the court whether the act in question has been performed by members of the team in the performance of their official duties. Where the act has been performed in the exercise of official functions, the proceedings shall not be initiated. If the act was not performed in the performance of official duties, the proceedings may continue. The certificate issued by the Executive Director of the Agency and the competent authority of the country of origin shall be linked to the jurisdiction of the [third country] which cannot challenge it. The opening of proceedings by the members of the team prevents them from invoking immunity from jurisdiction in respect of counterclaims directly related to the main claim. While, when negotiating a stature agreement with a neighbouring third country, the Commission will use, on behalf of the European Union, the attached model status agreement, it should be noted that the final texts of such agreements will vary depending on the outcome of the negotiations with the third country.

However, the Commission will endeavour to preserve the substance of the model status agreement in such negotiations. The environmental effects for countries that export agricultural products from rainforest areas or other environmental regions, for example brazil, are increasingly being documented by environmental groups that oppose EU trade agreements. [138] In addition, other industries with a significant impact on the environment, such as mining, are developing in areas with low regulatory burdens, such as South America and Asia. Industry groups have argued that improved economic performance in these sectors will only raise standards in participating countries and that EU trade agreements should go hand in hand with efforts to harmonise environmental legislation.

(7) [third country] may request team members to consult its national databases where necessary to achieve the operational objectives set out in the operational plan and for return operations. Team members can only consult the data necessary for the performance of their tasks and skills. [third country] shall inform the Agency, prior to the deployment of the team members, of the national databases that can be consulted. That consultation shall be carried out in accordance with the national data protection legislation of [third country].
