Politische Maßnahmen der EU im Interesse der Bürger: Schutz europäischer Verbraucher

28-06-2019

Die Rechte der Verbraucher wurden in der Europäischen Union seit den 1970er Jahren durch die allmähliche Einführung von Verbraucherschutzvorschriften gestärkt. Infolgedessen gilt das Schutzniveau in der EU heute als eines der höchsten der Welt; dennoch besteht auch in der EU im Bereich des Verbraucherschutzes weiterhin Handlungsbedarf.

Die Rechte der Verbraucher wurden in der Europäischen Union seit den 1970er Jahren durch die allmähliche Einführung von Verbraucherschutzvorschriften gestärkt. Infolgedessen gilt das Schutzniveau in der EU heute als eines der höchsten der Welt; dennoch besteht auch in der EU im Bereich des Verbraucherschutzes weiterhin Handlungsbedarf. Den neuesten verfügbaren Daten zufolge gab 2016 jeder fünfte Verbraucher an, er habe in den vergangenen zwölf Monaten Grund für eine Beschwerde gehabt, und diese Zahl hat sich seit 2008 kaum verändert. Seit 2014 wurden Bemühungen in einer Reihe von Bereichen unternommen, darunter eine verstärkte grenzüberschreitende Zusammenarbeit zwischen den für Verbraucherschutz und Marktüberwachung zuständigen nationalen Behörden. Insbesondere hat die Kommission im April 2018 eine „Neugestaltung der Rahmenbedingungen für die Verbraucher“ vorgeschlagen, damit Verbandsklagen zum Schutz der gemeinsamen Interessen von Verbrauchern eingereicht werden können und die Verbraucherschutzbestimmungen in der EU modernisiert werden. Zu den sektorspezifischen Maßnahmen gehören die Abschaffung der Roaming-Gebühren in der EU im Jahr 2017, Rechtsvorschriften, um die Teilhabe der Verbraucher am digitalen Binnenmarkt zu erleichtern, Reformen der Vorschriften zum Schutz der Privatsphäre und zum Datenschutz, die Ausweitung der Rechte von Energieverbrauchern und Fahr- und Fluggästen und die Bemühungen um die Vermeidung unterschiedlicher Qualitätsniveaus von Markenlebensmitteln. Die Haushaltsmittel der EU für den Verbraucherschutz sind relativ bescheiden, da die Bestimmungen zwar auf EU-Ebene festgelegt werden, ihre Um- und Durchsetzung jedoch den Mitgliedstaaten obliegt. Das Verbraucherschutzprogramm verfügt für den Zeitraum 2013-2020 über Haushaltsmittel in Höhe von 188 Mio. EUR oder umgerechnet etwa 0,05 EUR pro Bürger und Jahr. Dies kann sich mit dem neuen mehrjährigen Finanzrahmen ändern, da der Verbraucherschutz Teil eines umfassenderen Binnenmarktprogramms wird, das Synergien zwischen den einzelnen Komponenten erwarten lässt. Die zukünftigen politischen Strategien könnten sich auf eine längere Produktlebensdauer, Kennzeichnungs- und Qualitätsanforderungen für nichtlandwirtschaftliche und industrielle Produkte, eine fairere Lebensmittelkennzeichnung und Finanzdienstleistungen für Privatkunden konzentrieren. Dies ist eine aktualisierte Fassung eines Briefings, das vor der Europawahl 2019 veröffentlicht wurde.

What if policy anticipated advances in science and technology?

What if blockchain revolutionised voting? What if your emotions were tracked to spy on you? And what if we genetically engineered an entire species? Science and policy are intricately connected. Via monthly 'What if' publications, the Scientific Foresight Unit (STOA; part of the European Parliamentary Research Service) draws Members of the European Parliament's attention to new scientific and technological developments relevant for policy-making.

The unit also provides administrative support to the Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA), which brings together 25 Members from nine different parliamentary committees who share a strong interest in science and technology in the context of policy-making.

EU fertilising products

26-06-2019

Fertilising products are used to improve plant growth, mainly in agriculture, enabling higher crop yields. However, they are associated with some challenges as regards security of supply, the environment and health. Although the 2003 Fertilisers Regulation, which aimed at ensuring an internal market in fertilisers, has been effective, it mainly addresses mineral fertilisers and deters the introduction of new types of fertilisers. In March 2016, the Commission put forward a legislative proposal on ...

Fertilising products are used to improve plant growth, mainly in agriculture, enabling higher crop yields. However, they are associated with some challenges as regards security of supply, the environment and health. Although the 2003 Fertilisers Regulation, which aimed at ensuring an internal market in fertilisers, has been effective, it mainly addresses mineral fertilisers and deters the introduction of new types of fertilisers. In March 2016, the Commission put forward a legislative proposal on fertilising products, as announced in the circular economy action plan. The proposal modernises the conformity assessment and market surveillance in line with the ‘new legislative framework’ for product legislation, covers a wider range of fertilising products (including those manufactured from secondary raw materials), and sets limits for the presence of heavy metals and contaminants in fertilising products. After completion of the legislative procedure, the final act was signed on 5 June 2019. The regulation will apply in full from 16 July 2022. Fifth edition of a briefing originally drafted by Didier Bourguignon. The ‘EU Legislation in Progress’ briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.
