Parliamentary questions
16 July 2012
E-007069/2012
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Dan Jørgensen (S&D)

 Subject: Public hearing process in relation to Regulation (EC) No 998/2003 and Directive 92/65/EEC
 Answer(s) 

The Commission arranged a public hearing in relation to the proposed revision of Regulation (EC) No 998/2003 and Directive 92/65/EEC. In the spring of 2012 the animal welfare organisation Europetnet (EPN) asked its members in 23 EU Member States whether they were aware of the hearing in relation to the revision of Regulation (EC) No 998/2003 and Directive 92/65/EEC. Apparently, the only member who had heard about this hearing was the Danish member organisation (the Danish Dog Register).

I have furthermore been told that at two European conferences on animal welfare in the EU, held in Brussels on 12-13 and 19-20 June with participation from DG SANCO, the president of EPN asked representatives from DG SANCO about the number of answers/comments received. No answer was given by the DG SANCO representative.

1. I would therefore like to ask how many answers/comments has the Commission received in relation to the revision of Regulation (EC) No 998/2003 and Directive 92/65/EEC?

2. From a democratic perspective, does the Commission regard the hearing process in relation to the revision of Regulation (EC) No 998/2003 and Directive 92/65/EEC as one that lives up to the ideals of involvement of the interested parties?
