APPLICATION for revision of the judgment delivered by the Court of Justice on 7 July 1992 in Case C-295/90 Parliament v Council [1992] ECR I-4193,

THE COURT,

composed of: O. Due, President, C.N. Kakouris, G.C. Rodríguez Iglesias, M. Zuleeg and J.L. Murray (Presidents of Chambers), G.F. Mancini, R. Joliet, F.A. Schockweiler, J.C. Moitinho de Almeida, F. Grévisse, M. Diez de Velasco, P.J.G. Kapteyn and D.A.O Edward, Judges,

Advocate General: F.G. Jacobs,

Registrar: J.-G. Giraud,

after hearing the views of the Advocate General,

gives the following

Judgment

Grounds

1 By letter of 24 July 1992, received at the Court on 29 July 1992, the Council lodged an application under Article 41 of the Protocol on the Statute of the Court of Justice of the EEC and the corresponding provisions of the Protocols on the Statutes of the Court of Justice of the ECSC and EAEC for revision of the judgment delivered by the Court on 7 July 1992 in Case C-295/90 Parliament v Council [1992] ECR I-4193.

2 The applicant requests that the word "Council" be deleted from the beginning of paragraph 22 of that judgment and that the sentence "The Council expressed no view on this point" be added at the end of paragraph 22.

3 The Council maintains that it never expressed its views concerning any temporal limitation of the effects of the judgment, either in its pleadings or at the hearing. The other parties have indicated that they do not wish to submit any observations.

4 In considering the admissibility of the present application, it is appropriate to bear in mind that, according to the first paragraph of Article 41 of the Protocol on the Statute of the Court,

"An application for revision of a judgment may be made to the Court only on discovery of a fact which is of such a nature as to be a decisive factor, and which, when the judgment was given, was unknown to the Court and to the party claiming the revision".

5 However, the Council does not refer in support of its application to the discovery of any new fact of that kind. The error referred to by the Council constitutes a clerical error which has been dealt with in an order of the Court made today.

6 It follows that the application for revision must be declared inadmissible.

Decision on costs

Costs

7 Since neither of the parties has made any submissions concerning costs, they must be ordered to bear their own costs.

Operative part

On those grounds,

THE COURT

hereby:

1. Dismisses the application for revision as inadmissible;

2. Orders the parties to bear their own costs.
