Parliamentary questions
16 August 2011
E-007162/2011
Answer given by Mr Dalli on behalf of the Commission

The issue of the tapeworm Echinococcus multilocularis has already been addressed by the Commission in its reply to the previous Written Question E‑004928/2011 by Mr Tannock(1).

Following extensive expert consultation, the Commission adopted on 14 July 2011 Commission delegated regulation supplementing Regulation (EC) No 998/2003(2) as regards preventive health measures for the control of Echinococcus multilocularis infection in dogs (C(2011) 5016 final). For certain Member States, including the United Kingdom the proposed measures maintain the same level of protection against the parasite as previously established by their national legislation, as long as no occurrence of the infection is recorded in the framework of the harmonised wildlife surveillance programme they are to implement.

This proposal was submitted to the European Parliament and Council for a 2+2 months scrutiny. If the Parliament and Council do not oppose this act it could be published in the Official Journal of the European Union and enter into force before the aforementioned national measures expire on 31 December 2011.
