New EU Action Plan suggests no major revisions of the SE legislation
The new Action Plan on EU Company Law and Governance, published on 12 December 2012, contains no proposal for revising the SE Directive or Regulation. Instead, it is stated that the Commission will try to promote and improve "awareness awareness of the European Company (SE) and the European Cooperative (SCE) Statutes."
Specifically, on page 14 of the Action Plan: "The Commission will, in 2013, launch an information campaign to increase awareness of the European Company (SE) Statute through a comprehensive website bringing together practical advice and relevant documents on the Statute and will examine how a similar action can be undertaken for the promotion of the European Cooperative (SCE) Statute."
