Report produced by the European Parliament's Committee on Legal Affairs, calling for a legislative initiative concerning the establishment of a statute for European cross-border association and non-profit organisations.
This report calls on the European Commission to put forward a Directive on common measures for Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) and also a Regulation establishing a statute for European cross-border associations and non-profit organisations. The document recognises that while NPOs are an integral part of the European Union's economy, they face multiple legal and administrative challenges when attempting to operate across borders. It maintains that minimum EU standards and the possibility to acquire a legal personality would help NPOs overcome these barriers.
The report was adopted by the Committee on 9 December 2021.
