The EEA Joint Committee met for the fifth time in 2023 on 5 July at EFTA House in Brussels. The meeting was presided over by Liechtenstein’s Ambassador and EFTA Chair Pascal Schafhauser. Nicolas von Lingen of the Secretariat-General of the European Commission co-chaired the meeting on behalf of the EU.
In the meeting, 12 Joint Committee decisions were adopted, incorporating 15 EU legal acts into the EEA Agreement. Among them were several important decisions, including a Regulation in the field of competition on the categories of vertical agreements and concerted practices, two acts concerning medicinal products, two acts in the field of transport, and seven acts in the field of financial services.
This was the first meeting under Liechtenstein’s Chairmanship and the last one before the summer break. The next meeting will take place on 22 September 2023.
