Question for written answer E-006313-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ismail Ertug (S&D)

 Subject:  Timetable for the drafting of the implementing act pursuant to Article 36(3)(b) of the Food Information Regulation on information on suitability of food for vegetarians and vegans
 Answer in writing 

Since 2011, Article 36(3)(b) of the Food Information Regulation, Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011, has stipulated that the Commission is to adopt an implementing act on the suitability of food for vegans and vegetarians. The Commission has so far failed to do so. In 2017, the REFIT Platform addressed an opinion to the Commission encouraging it to take action in this area as soon as possible. In the Commission Work Programme for 2018 it is stated that work on the implementing act will begin in 2019.

1. Does the Commission intend to start working on the implementing act on information about the suitability of food for vegetarians and vegans before the end of the current parliamentary term, and how will the Commission ensure that this work continues in the next parliamentary term if necessary?

2. What is the Commission’s timetable for drafting the implementing act on the suitability of food for vegetarians or vegans?
