Subject: Proposal for a Council Regulation on the establishment of structures for the management of the European satellite radionavigation programme
1. The Permanent Representatives Committee has reached a large degree of consensus on the annexed text of the above draft Regulation, accompanied by the draft Council conclusions as presented in doc 9945/04 TRANS 215 MAR 94 AVIATION 132 RECH 111 CAB 34.
Concerning security aspects more particularly, a dual approach has been developed between the first and second pillar bodies, consisting in two different legal instruments to be adopted concomitantly: the present Council Regulation and a Council Joint Action to tackle the issue
of aspects of the operation of the European GNSS system affecting the security of the European Union or of its Member States. The Working Party has also taken due account of the opinion of the Galileo Security Board Working Group II to the Commission.
The Commission will issue a unilateral declaration to be included in the Council minutes (doc. 9960/04 ADD 1) concerning the composition of the Administrative Board. The Danish and French delegations have parliamentary scrutiny reservations.
