Question for written answer E-007875-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Piernicola Pedicini (EFDD)

 Subject:  Indication of country of origin: national and European rules
 Answer in writing 

Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers does not require the country or place of origin to be indicated for all foods.

On a trial basis, Italy has for two years introduced decrees requiring the following information to be provided on labels:
The origin of milk and of dairy products, in force since 19 April 2017 (Decree of 9 December 2016);
The origin of rice and durum wheat for durum wheat semolina pasta, entering into force with effect from 16 and 17 February 2018 respectively (Decrees of 26 July 2017);
The registered place of business and the address of the establishment of production or packaging, in force since 22 October 2017 (Legislative Decree of 15 September 2017).

On 21 October 2017, moreover, a decree on the origin of tomatoes for canning and the production of juices and derivatives from them was also announced.

1. Did the EU deliver an opinion before each of these national decrees entered into force, pursuant to Article 45 of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011?

2. Has an impact assessment of the various national origin rules, including those in Italy, been launched, as requested by some Member States?

3. When will the Commission adopt the implementing acts referred to in Article 26(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011, which would cause the Italian decrees to lapse?
