01-03-2016

The proposal for a regulation on animal health, presented by the European Commission in May 2013 as part of a wider package of initiatives on the agri-food chain, aims at integrating and simplifying EU legislation related to the control of transmissible animal diseases. Following trilogue negotiations in view of an early second reading agreement, a compromise has been reached and a vote in plenary is scheduled for the March session.
