An amending directive was published on July 10, dealing with consequential amendments as a result of the EU's adoption of a new “comitology” procedure in 2006. The new procedure increases the European Parliament's rights of oversight of implementing measures and gives the European Parliament the right to exercise scrutiny of draft implementing measures, and also extends the grounds on which the European Parliament may oppose a draft measure or may propose amendments.
