EUR-Lex Access to European Union law
In this context, the significance of controlling smaller businesses, including micro-enterprises, becomes apparent. Current rules only require mandatory fees to be charged for official control activities on businesses handling meat, fishery products, and milk, for the approval of feed establishments and for most controls at the borders.
Competitiveness – Option 4 addresses the perceived unfairness of the current system, which only requires certain categories of operators to participate in the financing of controls, by ensuring that mandatory fees are applicable to a wider array of operators within the food production chain.
They also reflect the Commission’s objective of ensuring proper enforcement of EU law, as this is the original objective of the Regulation on official controls.
On the contrary, stakeholders and MS argue that, given the current economic crisis, the problems affecting the sustainability of controls could worsen if MS decisions result in fewer resources being allocated to the operation of national control systems. The review of the Regulation was considered a good opportunity to take account of the findings of the report and consolidate controls where possible.
Inefficient use of control resources including at the EU borders could imply the perpetuation of avoidable administrative costs and burdens for operators. CAs are not provided with any rule on how to trigger cooperation requests, on what the request content could be and what can be expected as a result of it etc. Safety — A decrease in the availability of resources would inevitably reduce the resources available to CAs to perform official controls potentially leading to fewer controls being carried out.
Provisions on fees in particular ensure that businesses, which benefit directly from efficiently performed controls, participate to the financing of the latter, so as to minimise the dependency of control funding on public finances. Also in this area, a task force with MS experts and the Commission was set up to discuss the feasibility of the inclusion of seeds and propagating material within the scope of the general framework for official controls.
This IA considers the possible impacts of reviewing such a framework. This will provide the Commission on a regular basis with data and information about the indicators listed above and more generally about the fulfilment by MS of the objectives pursued by the legislation.
Simplification – The repeal of decreot EU framework would result in a more complex legislative landscape as decerto in national rules on the financing of controls are likely to increase.
Following this meeting the board issued an opinion on 30 March emphasising four main points as well as 253-09 presentational issues to be addressed in the final version of the report. This would generate additional costs for the initial accreditation and for the annual audits: This rationale, which is still valid, underpins the existing rules on official controls. In particular, the Regulation includes:.
In the options considered below, the exemption of micro-enterprises from the application of fees is therfore replaced by a mechanism which aims to respond to both the abovementioned shortcomings i. Simplification – Option 3 would ensure a harmonised approach to official controls along the entire agri-food chain, while taking into account the specificities of every sector where necessary.
Reduce occurrence of unsatisfactory enforcement results in FVO reports attributed to resources shortages. FEFAC highlights that EU legislation gives priority to analytical controls, in particular for the control of the presence of contaminants or constituents. As a follow-up to these meetings, a discussion paper was drafted with the purpose of summarising the main issues identified during the discussions as well as the corresponding suggestions for improvement from the MS.
Annex XV lists a number of significant cases where, recreto the last 4 years, EU inspectors have reported dcreto the reason for identified shortcomings in control activities or for unsatisfactory or insufficient levels of controls is attributed to the lack or shortage of resources.
decrsto The limited number of official controls is currently regulated by a set of 12 Council Directives on the marketing of plant reproductive material. However, official or CEN methods are tested and validated for certain matrixes or sample types.
However, they are not in favour of a publication of this performance rating by individual companies. Benefit Stable funding in areas already charged i. Whilst it is not possible to decrwto the shortcomings identified in financial terms, it is clear that the regime established by the legislation is not serving the public to its full potential. The review of the EU legislative framework applicable to official controls along the agri-food chain aims at improving the efficiency and consistency of the system, and ensuring its long term sustainability.
While they are primarily responsibile for preventing that unsafe products enter the agri-food chain, the system of own controls that they are required to establish could not deliver fully if it was not complemented by a dedicated, complex and costly system of official controls maintained by each MS, requiring from CAs an effort which goes beyond “normal” market surveillance duties.

Such fees include transport costs, document control and verification procedures and are claimed to represent full cost recovery. This, coupled with the fact that the modalities of calculation of the fees, and figures on the amounts collected through the system and on the use made of such revenues, contributes to the perceived unfairness of the fees deccreto in the eyes of those currently charged as was repeatedly noted in consultation with stakeholders.
Thus, introducing full cost recovery would see in some cases an additional part of the costs of controls being transferred to, and distributed amongst, agri-food chain operators. This IA analyses the likely social, economic and environmental impacts — be they direct or indirect — of the different policy options.
The EU’s ability to export towards third countries relies on the reputation of the high production standards and added value that the EU goods can prove to have compared to the ones produced outside Europe.
