Other parliamentary activities 

Written explanations of vote 
Members can submit a written explanation of their vote in plenary. Rule 194

Zero tolerance for female genital mutilation (B8-0068/2018) DE  
 

Klare Unterstützung für die Forderung „Null Toleranz gegenüber Genitalverstümmelung bei Frauen“ in der gleichnamigen Resolution, die wir im Europäischen Parlament verabschiedet haben. Genitalverstümmelung ist eine grausame Form der Verletzung der Rechte von Frauen und stellt weltweit leider immer noch ein Problem dar. Die Forderungen betreffend den reproduktiven und sexuellen Rechte lehne ich entschieden ab und daher habe ich gegen die entsprechenden Anträge im Text gestimmt.

Objection to an implementing measure: scientific criteria for the determination of endocrine disrupting properties (B8-0542/2017) DE  
 

Ich habe mich bei dem Entschließungsantrag zu dem Entwurf der Verordnung der Kommission zur Festlegung wissenschaftlicher Kriterien für die Bestimmung endokrinschädlicher Eigenschaften enthalten. Die Evaluierung von wissenschaftlichen Kriterien soll keine politische Entscheidung sein, denn bei der Ausarbeitung selbiger waren Experten im Einsatz. Dem Vorwurf, dass der Verordnungsvorschlag nicht objektiv klassifizierbar wäre, steht die Gefahr gegenüber, dass die derzeit geltenden interimistischen Kriterien nicht geeignet sind, die endokrinen Disruptoren nach heutigem Stand der Technik zufriedenstellend zu regeln. Die Europäische Kommission ist aufgerufen, dieses Vakuum so schnell wie möglich zu schließen.

Written questions 
Members can submit a specific number of questions to the President of the European Council, the Council, the Commission and the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union, for written answer. Rule 138, Annex III

Declarations
