Question for written answer E-001474-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ana Miranda (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  Importation of products from Israel
 Answer in writing 

The correct labelling of products imported from non-EU countries is a fundamental right of EU citizens allowing them to obtain information on the origin and quality of products.

However, the labelling of products coming from Israel is somewhat problematic, because some of these products have been produced in illegally occupied Palestinian territories and are not properly labelled as such. The EU has rules regarding importation of products and services from non-EU countries.

Could the Commission clarify which entity within the EU gives the actual stamp of approval for importation of products and services from third countries?

What is the procedure for requesting importation notices?

Can the Commission confirm whether such importation constitutes a legal act?
