Countering terrorism financing, BPA in food container and Pleanary preparations – this week at the European Parliament

MEPs are back in Brussels for a week of committee and political group meetings. From new rules to counter terrorism financing to BPA in food containers we have selected the highlights.



Terrorist financing.  New rules to better equip EU countries to freeze and confiscate criminal assets across the EU will be voted on by the Civil Liberties Committee. Part of a package aimed at strengthening the fight against financing terrorism and organised crime, the draft legislation would also allow national authorities to temporarily freeze assets that are at risk of suddenly being moved, if no action is taken. (Thursday)

Endocrine disruptors. A proposal by the European Commission setting new limits for the use of the endocrine disruptor bisphenol A (BPA) in varnishes and coatings that come into contact with food will be up for a vote in the Environment and Public Health Committee. In 2016, Parliament asked for a ban on BPA in all materials which come into contact with food.  (Thursday)
