I. Description

Council Directive 2001/23/EC of 12 March 2001 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the safeguarding of employees' rights in the event of transfers of undertakings, businesses or parts of undertakings or businesses1 codifies Council Directive 77/187/EEC2, as amended by Council Directive 98/50/EC3. Article 7b) of Directive 98/50/EC states: "The Commission shall submit to the Council an analysis of the effects of the provisions of this Directive before 17 July 2006. It shall propose any amendment which may seem necessary." That Article was incorporated into Directive 2001/23/EC as Article 10. The object of this report is therefore to examine the provisions of the Directive in the light of the experience which has been acquired and, in particular, of the case-law of the Court, taking into account the answers of the Member States and the social partners to the questionnaire which was sent to them by the Commission (cf. Annex I) with a view to proposing possible changes. A detailed report on the implementation of the Directive in each of the 25 Member States will be prepared by the Commission departments in 2007.
