The Council adopted a common position and a statement of reasons at first reading, with a view to the adoption of the Regulation on Community statistics on public health and health and safety at work. The Regulation aims to establish a framework for the systematic production of Community statistics in the two aforementioned areas.
The statistics should take the form of a harmonised and common data set and would be produced by the European Statistical System (i.e. Eurostat, together with the national statistical institutes and all other national authorities responsible for the provision of official statistics in these areas).
