It may not be the world record setting exercise in cutting red tape, but a small step to repeal outdated EU legislation.
If you want to see it with your own eyes, look at the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) 12.6.2009 L 149 to see 25 legislative acts become history at one fell swoop.
First, there is (page 1):
Council Regulation (EC) No 492/2009 of 25 May 2009 repealing 14 obsolete Regulations in the field of the Common Fisheries Policy.
Then there is (page 62):
Council Decision 2009/447/EC of 25 May 2009 repealing Directive 83/515/EEC and 11 obsolete Decisions in the field of the Common Fisheries Policy.
If this continues, my fellow EU law bloggers and I may run out of things to write about in a few thousand years.
