All I have (read) is linked from

In particular 

JURI report

Directive proposal from the European Commission

But this is not specially new. What do you need exactly, a version of
the directive as it would result if the JURI report was approved in
plenary? (that is: the amendments passed in JURI integrated in the CEC
proposal). Maybe I have missed that document, I don't know it exists.
Is it what Joao has sent?.

Since you want to talk to MEPs who have to vote in plenary (Sept 1st
2003) the JURI report, you may be interested in the 4 pages summary at
