(1999/C 289/027) WRITTEN QUESTION E-3070/98


by Mary Banotti (PPE) to the Commission

(9 October 1998)

Subject: Legal requirement to carry identity cards

Could the Commission say which Member States legally require their members to carry identity cards?

Could the Commission supply any up-to-date information on proposals for a standardised identity card
throughout the Member States for the future?

Answer given by Mr Monti on behalf of the Commission

(11 December 1998)

On the basis of the information available to the Commission six Member States require their citizens to carry
identity cards (Belgium, Greece, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal).

Not all Member States require identity cards. A proposal on the harmonization of the layout of identity cards is
not among the priorities fixed by the Commission’s work programme.

(1999/C 289/028) WRITTEN QUESTION E-3083/98


by Pedro Marset Campos (GUE/NGL) to the Commission

(16 October 1998)

Subject: Standard qualifications for cinema and video projectionists and technicians working in cinemas and
theatres in the EU

Given that professional qualifications for cinema and video projectionists and technicians differ across EU
Member States:

1. Is the Commission aware of the professional status of cinema and video projectionists and technicians in
the Member States?

2. Will it say whether in all the Member States except Spain, cinema projectionists having completed the
relevant course then obtain professional qualifications which are standardised across EU Member States in
such a way as to enable them to practise their profession in any other Member State?

3. Is it aware that in contrast to the practice in other EU Member States, cinema projectionists in Spain are
not awarded professional qualifications in line with European standards? Will it explain why this is so?

4. As guardian of the Treaties, does it not believe that this situation discriminates against Spanish cinema
projectionists and thus fails to comply with the spirit of the EU Treaties?

Answer given by Mr Monti on behalf of the Commission

(14 December 1998)

The mutual recognition of cinema and video projectionists’ and technicians’ diplomas or qualifications is
governed by the general system for the recognition of diplomas within the Community. This system is based
on two directives: Council Directive 89/48/EEC of 21 December 1988, which establishes a general system for
the recognition of higher-education diplomas awarded on completion of professional training of at least three
years’ duration (1), and Council Directive 92/51/EEC of 18 June 1992, which establishes a second general
system for the recognition of professional education and training (2). Depending on their level of training,
cinema and video projectionists’ and technicians’ qualifications are therefore covered by one or other of these
directives.
