Resilience of critical entities: extracts from the vote and statement by Michal ŠIMEČKA (Renew, SK) - LIBE Committee


The Civil Liberties Committee (LIBE) has endorsed a trilogue agreement on new rules to better protect the EU’s essential infrastructure. The new rules would establish harmonised minimum rules to ensure that different member states classify the same providers as essential, and risk assessments for essential infrastructure to boost its resilience in the face of disruptions and hazards. The scope would be expanded to eleven sectors in total, including energy, transport, banking, financial market infrastructures, health, drinking water, waste water, food, digital infrastructure and space. This topic come into the news recently with the Nord Stream gas pipelines sabotage in the Baltic Sea.
