Question for written answer E-012833-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Norbert Erdős (PPE)

 Subject:  Level of antibiotic residues detected in animal feedstuffs imported into the EU
 Answer in writing 
In its answer to my Written Question 8332/2015, the Commission acknowledged that ‘[t]he Commission is aware that outside the EU, antibiotics are used to control the bio-ethanol production process, which has been proven to lead to residues in its by-products. Immediately after the first detection of antibiotic residue in bio-ethanol by-products at our border controls, the Commission alerted the competent authorities in the Member States and asked them to specifically focus in their control plans on antibiotic residues in these products.’ In the light of the above I have the following questions for the Commission:
1. Precisely how many tests to detect the presence of antibiotic residues did the individual Member States’ relevant authorities carry out on feedstuffs imported into the EU in the last five-year period?
2. Precisely how many of these tests, broken down by Member State, gave a result exceeding the EU limit value for residues?
