This proposal for recasting is intended to amend Council Directive 94/45/EC of 22 September 1994 on the establishment of a European Works  Council or a procedure in Community-scale undertakings and Community-scale groups of undertakings for the purposes of informing and consulting employees1, as extended to the United Kingdom by Council Directive 97/74/EC of 15 December 19972 and adapted by Council Directive 2006/109/EC of 20 November 2006 by reason of the accession of Bulgaria and Romania.

Article 15 of Directive 94/45/EC provides that, not later than 22 September 1999, the Commission, in consultation with the Member States and with management and labour at European level, is to review its operation and, in particular examine whether the workforce size thresholds are appropriate with a view to proposing suitable amendments to the Council where necessary. In the Report from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council on the application of Directive 94/45/EC4, the Commission stated that it would take a decision on a possible review of the Directive on the basis of the required further assessments and the evolution of the other legislative proposals on the involvement of employees.
