C.i Notifications under Article 63.2
22. The representative of the European Communities expressed his appreciation for the statement made by Romania. He welcomed the fact that a country which might benefit from a transition period under Article 65 had submitted its legislation for review before the year 2000. As said before, a huge number of laws would need to be reviewed as from the year 2000 and it would, consequently, be useful if other delegations were to follow the Romanian example and allow review of their legislation in advance of the year 2000, without prejudice to Article 65. He also wished to draw the Council's attention to the issue of new notifications and their examination, in particular whether they should be reviewed individually or only after a certain number of such notifications had been received.
