- Après le vote:


  Marianne Thyssen, Member of the Commission. – Madam President, I take note of this resolution adopted by the European Parliament. Allow me to affirm that the draft Commission regulation is in line with the procedural steps set out in Council Decision 1999/468/EC on comitology and Regulation No 396/2005 and that it is therefore within the implementing powers conferred on the Commission in this latter regulation. I would also like to remind you that the Standing Committee has given a favourable opinion on the draft act and the Council has already decided not to oppose it.

I find it regrettable that Parliament has rejected this measure, which is based on the scientific assessment of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Such decisions undermine the EU’s well-established, science—based approach to food safety.

That is what I wanted to declare in the name of the Commission.
