    Text proposed by the Commission

    Amendment

    (3) Under Article 118(1) of Regulation (EU) 2019/6, third country operators exporting animals and products of animal origin to the Union are required to respect the prohibition of the use of antimicrobials for growth promotion and yield increase, as well as the prohibition of the use of antimicrobials reserved for treatment of certain infections in humans in order to preserve the efficacy of those antimicrobials.

    (3) In accordance with Regulation (EU) 2019/6, a more prudent and responsible use of antimicrobials in animals is ensured, inter alia, by way of the prohibitions on the use of antimicrobials for growth promotion and yield increase and on the use of antimicrobials reserved for treatment of certain infections in humans. Under Article 118(1) of Regulation (EU) 2019/6, third country operators exporting animals and products of animal origin to the Union are required to respect those prohibitions. As set out in Recital (49) of that Regulation, it is important to consider the international dimension of the development of antimicrobial resistance by taking non-discriminatory and proportionate measures, while respecting Union obligations under international agreements.

    Justification

    The Parliament is currently drawing up an INI report on the Farm to Fork strategy. As the Parliament position on the strategy is not yet adopted, it is not considered appropriate to add comments on the strategy into this piece of legislation, which is based on what was laid down in the Regulation on veterinary medicinal products.

    Amendment  5

    Proposal for a regulation

    Recital 5 a (new)

     

    Text proposed by the Commission

    Amendment

     

    (5a) In accordance with Article 18(7)(g) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625, the Commission is to adopt specific rules for the performance of official controls on criteria and conditions to determine, in relation to Pectinidae, marine gastropods and Holothuroidea, when production and relaying areas are not to be classified. Holothuroidea are a class of the phylum Echinoderms. Echinoderms are generally not filter feeder animals. Consequently, the risk of such animals accumulating micro-organisms related to faecal contamination is remote. In addition, no epidemiological information has been reported which could link public health risks to Echinoderms that are not filter feeders. For this reason, the possibility laid down in Article 18(7)(g)of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 to derogate from the requirement to classify the production and relaying areas should be extended to all echinoderms which are not filter feeders, for example those belonging to class Echinoidea, and not be limited to Holothureoidea. For the same reason, it should be clarified that the conditions for the classification and monitoring of classified production and relaying areas to be laid down by the Commission apply to live bivalve molluscs, echinoderms, tunicates and marine gastropods, except those marine gastropods and echinoderms that are not filter feeders. The terminology used in Article 18(6) to (8) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 should be aligned accordingly.

    EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

    Antimicrobial resistance to medicinal products for human use and veterinary medicinal products is a growing health problem in the Union and worldwide. Due to the complexity of the problem, its cross-border dimension and the high economic burden, it has become a global public health concern that affects the whole of society and requires urgent and coordinated action across different sectors.

     

    The prudent use of antimicrobials is a cornerstone in addressing antimicrobial resistance also with regard to the international dimension. It was therefore clearly stated in recital 49 of the regulation on veterinary medicinal products (regulation (EU) 2019/6 of 11 December 2018) that it should be ensure that operators in third countries respect certain basic conditions relating to antimicrobial resistance for animals and products of animal origin exported to the Union. Any such action should respect Union obligations under relevant international agreements. This should contribute to the international fight against antimicrobial resistance, in particular in line with the WHO Global Action Plan and the OIE Strategy on Antimicrobial Resistance and the Prudent Use of Antimicrobials.

     

    Amending the Official Controls Regulation to cover verification of compliance with the rules on prudent use of antimicrobials is the only effective way of ensuring that the rules are complied with in relation to imports of animals and products of animal origin from third countries. The rapporteur is therefore supporting the aim of this proposal and understands the importance of having all the necessary controls in place with regard to imported animals and animal products at the same time as the regulation on veterinary medicinal products start applying on 28 January 2022.

    OPINION OF THE COMMITTEE ON AGRICULTURE AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT

    for the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety

    on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Regulation (EU) 2017/625 as regards official controls on animals and products of animal origin exported from third countries to the Union to ensure compliance with the prohibition of certain uses of antimicrobials

    (COM(2021)0108 – C9‑0094/2021 – 2021/0055(COD))

    Rapporteur for opinion: Ivan David

     

    SHORT JUSTIFICATION

    Regulation (EU) 2019/6 of the European Parliament and of the Council on veterinary medicinal products, which will replace the legal framework for veterinary medicinal products laid down by Directive 2001/82/EC and Regulation (EC) No 726/2004, will enter into force on 28 January 2022. Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 and Directive 2001/82/EC currently in force, and Regulation (EU) 2019/6, constitute the substantive part of the comprehensive EU legislation on the use of antimicrobials in agriculture and food.

    Article 118 of the Chapter on ‘Supply and Use’ (of veterinary medicinal products) of Regulation (EU) 2019/6 lays down the conditions for importing animals and animal products from third countries. Specifically, paragraph 1 lays down two basic restrictions on operators in third countries, applied simultaneously within the Union:

     a prohibition on the use of antimicrobials to enhance performance (a reference to Article 107(2)), and

     a prohibition on the use on animals of selected antimicrobials, or groups of antimicrobials, which are reserved by EU legislation for the treatment of certain human diseases (a reference to Article 37(5)).

    The purpose of those provisions is to maintain the effectiveness of the relevant antimicrobials. The use of such medicines, in the first case globally for non-medical purposes, and in the second in veterinary medicine in general, could result in the development or spread of microbial resistance and thus lead to reduced effectiveness or ineffectiveness of those antimicrobials in treating serious infections, in humans in the first case, as well as, in animals.

    Animals which have been treated in breach of the above obligations will be prohibited from being imported into the EU, as will products from such animals.

    Article 118(2) of the Regulation further states that the Commission is to adopt delegated acts to supplement the provisions of Article 118 with detailed rules on the application of paragraph 1.

    Unlike other legislation that lays down rules for animals and products of animal origin, Regulation (EU) 2019/6 does not contain any basic provisions on import conditions or on official controls on compliance with those import requirements.

    Since the end of 2019, the issue of official controls in the food chain, including controls on imports of animals and animal products, has been governed by the uniform regulatory framework laid down by Regulation (EU) 2017/625 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 March 2017 on official controls and other official activities performed to ensure the application of food and feed law, rules on animal health and welfare, plant health and plant protection products. Regulation (EU) 2017/625 forms the procedural part of the comprehensive EU legislation on the use of antimicrobials in agriculture and food. This provision lays down the procedural rules for performing controls on compliance with the prohibition on the use of antimicrobials in agriculture and food, including controls on compliance with that prohibition in respect of commodities imported from third countries.

    However, Article 1(4)(c) of the Official Controls Regulation states that that Regulation does not apply to official controls for the verification of compliance with Directive 2001/82/EC on veterinary medicinal products. As soon as Regulation (EU) 2019/6 enters into force, the reference to the directive will become a reference to that regulation. The current wording of Article 1(4)(c) thus excludes the whole of Regulation (EU) 2019/6 from its scope, thereby effectively preventing effective controls on imported commodities to establish whether or not they contain antimicrobials, or residues thereof, whose use is prohibited in the EU in accordance with Article 118 of the “Veterinary Medicinal Products Regulation”.

    In order to ensure the operation of the system for controls on compliance with the rules on the use of antimicrobials in agriculture and foods, including with respect to commodities imported from third countries, it is necessary to harmonise and interconnect the substantive and procedural regulation of this issue in EU law.

    In order to create a level playing field for producers within and outside the EU, restrictions and prohibitions on the use of antimicrobials with which producers in EU countries must also apply to commodities imported from third countries. The rules on the presence of antimicrobial residues in animal bodies and animal products imported from third countries are laid down in Article 118 of the “Veterinary Medicinal Products Regulation”as an express obligation on operators importing such commodities from third countries to ensure that only animals and products of animal origin which meet the requirements laid down by EU law for such commodities are imported into the common market of the Union.

    The current form of Regulation (EU) 2019/6 does not allow effective control procedures to be established because it was designed as a framework for national legislation on the surveillance of medicines. Furthermore, controls of imported animals and animal products generally falls within the scope of the Official Controls Regulation. In the absence of an amendment to Article 1 of this Regulation, which defines the scope of this Regulation, it would not be possible to control compliance of the above prohibition in accordance with Article 118 of Regulation (EU) 2019/6.

    The objective of this amendment is to modify the wording of Article 1 of the Official Controls Regulation to integrate controls to verify compliance with Article 118 of Regulation (EU) 2019/6 into the scope of the Official Controls Regulation.

    AMENDMENTS

    The Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development calls on the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety, as the committee responsible, to take into account the following amendments:

    Text proposed by the Commission

    Amendment

    (3) Under Article 118(1) of Regulation (EU) 2019/6, third country operators exporting animals and products of animal origin to the Union are required to respect the prohibition of the use of antimicrobials for growth promotion and yield increase, as well as the prohibition of the use of antimicrobials reserved for treatment of certain infections in humans in order to preserve the efficacy of those antimicrobials.

    (3) Under Article 118(1) of Regulation (EU) 2019/6, third country operators exporting animals and products of animal origin to the Union are required to respect Union standards and the prohibition of the use of antimicrobials for growth promotion and yield increase, as well as the prohibition of the use of antimicrobials reserved for treatment of certain infections in humans in order to preserve the efficacy of those antimicrobials.

    Amendment  3

    Proposal for a regulation

    Recital 4

     

    Text proposed by the Commission

    Amendment

    (4) Article 118 of Regulation (EU) 2019/6 builds on the One Health Action Plan against antimicrobial resistance (‘AMR’)9 , by enhancing the prevention and control of AMR and promoting a more prudent and responsible use of antimicrobials in animals. This is also reflected in the Commission’s Farm to Fork Strategy10 , in which the Commission has set the ambitious target of reducing by 50% overall EU sales of antimicrobials used for farmed animals and in aquaculture by 2030.

    (4) Article 118 of Regulation (EU) 2019/6 builds on the One Health Action Plan against antimicrobial resistance (‘AMR’)9 , by enhancing the prevention and control of AMR and promoting a more prudent and responsible use of antimicrobials in animals. This is also reflected in the Commission’s Farm to Fork Strategy10 , in which the Commission has set the ambitious target of reducing by 50% overall EU sales of antimicrobials used for farmed animals and in aquaculture by 2030. Even as the use of antimicrobials in Europe has decreased, the work should continue and the fight against misuse and overuse of antimicrobials should be upheld across the whole world. There is therefore a need for a consistent global approach against AMR that establishes, when possible, reduction targets for countries, taking countries' starting positions and specific prerequisites into account.

The 2017 RONAFA report calls for more preventative measures in the combat against AMR. Higher animal welfare standards and better implementation of animal welfare legislation, together with the use of preventative tools such as vaccines and the use of innovative animal health technologies such as diagnostics, can reduce the need for antimicrobials.
