France takes over the EU Council Presidency

The 1st of January marks the beginning of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union. During the first half of 2022, INSEE will chair the Council Working Party on Statistics (CWPS). The main objective is to direct the legislative work in the field of statistics and to formulate the joint positions of the Council in view of the discussions to be held with the other co-legislator, namely the European Parliament, and with the European Commission.

On this website, you will find the latest developments of the legal statistical files discussed at the CWPS (ESA2010 revision) and in the trilogues with the European Parliament and the European Commission (SAIO). Furthermore, we aim to keep you updated on the main events and achievements of the French Presidency and on the progress of the negotiation of the new data regulations (including the Data Act and ePrivacy).

During the French Presidency, INSEE will organise, together with Eurostat (the statistical office of the EU) a high-level meeting. This meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss the content of the revision of the 223/2009 Regulation, the European statistical law. The high-level meeting is to be held on 7 and 8 April 2022 in Lyon.
