2002 EN Official Journal of the European Communities C 229 E/61

€ 208,4 million, including a Community contribution of € 135,9 million. According to the Greek
authorities, all these funds have been committed at national level.

For the 2000-2006 programming period, the ‘Culture’ OP of the CSF has a total budget of € 604,9 million,
including € 414,3 million from the ERDF. The programme’s priorities are the protection and development
of the cultural heritage and the promotion of modern culture.

The European Union does not part-finance projects but regional and multiregional development
programmes. Evaluation and the selection of projects and the final beneficiaries of Community assistance
are not the responsibility of the Commission but of the regional and national managing authorities, to
which the projects are submitted. These authorities are required to keep the data available for the
Commission for inspection purposes. The Commission would therefore request the Honourable Member to
ask the Greek Ministry of Culture for an exact list of projects.

The Commission has not recovered any Community funds under these programmes.

(2002/C 229 E/068) WRITTEN QUESTION E-0189/02

by Massimo Carraro (PSE) to the Commission

(6 February 2002)

Subject: Labour medicine

On 12 December 2001 the Italian Senate adopted Act No 824, by which decree-law No 402 of
12 November 2001 on urgent measures relating to health personnel acquires the status of a law proper.

Article 1a of this act extends the right to take responsibility, as ‘competent doctor’, for health and safety
measures in the workplace to doctors specialising in either hygiene and preventive medicine or legal and
insurance medicine.

Does the Commission not consider this law to be in flagrant breach of the EU directive on health and
safety in the workplace, under which this competence is reserved for doctors specialising in labour

Does the Commission not consider further that doctors specialising in hygiene and preventive medicine or
legal and insurance medicine should be allowed to practice at national level only, given that their training,
unlike that of specialists in labour medicine, is not recognised at European level?

In addition, given the deficiencies of the existing training arrangements for specialists in hygiene and legal
medicine as far as workplace health and safety is concerned, does the Commission not consider that the
implementation of the above-mentioned Article 1a could jeopardise employees’ health and safety?

What action does the Commission intend to take to deal with this breach of Community law?
