On 1 June 2018, as part of the work on the EU's 2021-2027 multiannual financial framework, the European Commission proposed a package of three regulations with the aim of reshaping and modernising the common agricultural policy (CAP). One of these proposals, the Amending Regulation, introduces changes to rules governing the common market organisation (CMO) in agricultural products (including the rules on wine), the EU quality schemes (geographical indications) and the support measures for remote ...

EU food quality scheme

Auf einen Blick 08-07-2019

The quality of European agricultural products often relies on their geographical origins, the traditional recipes used to make them, and the methods used in production and processing. These human and geographical factors are intrinsic to making a product unique. In 1992, the EU developed a quality scheme for foodstuffs, including the designation of their origin. The objectives of the EU quality scheme are to provide consumers with clear information, allowing them to make a more informed choice, and ...

In connection with the next reform of the CAP post 2020, the Commission has proposed a new Regulation (COM(2018)394 of 1 June 2018) on the common market organisation, amending Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of 13 December 2013 (amended by Regulation (EU) No 2017/2393 of 13 December 2017). This draft regulation does not, however, cover questions on the relationship between the CAP and competition; the proposal does not contain any provisions concerning the responsibilities of professional and interbranch ...

Large and intensive olive plantations or small traditional olive orchards, together with ancient olive groves and even monumental olive trees, some of which are 2 500 or 3 000 years old – all these are emblematic of the Mediterranean basin's landscape, cultural heritage and culinary traditions. Olive-based products are primary elements in the agricultural economy of the EU's southern countries, with about 5 million hectares of plantations and more than €7 000 million in production value every year ...

Ergebnis diese Studie war die Ermittlung der folgenden vier wesentlichen künftigen Möglichkeiten und Herausforderungen in Zusammenhang mit der Präzisionslandwirtschaft (Precision Agriculture, PA) in der EU, für die das Europäische Parlament jetzt vorausschauende Maßnahmen beschließen könnte: 1. Die PA kann einen aktiven Beitrag zur Ernährungs- und Lebensmittelsicherheit leisten; 2. durch die PA wird die Nachhaltigkeit der Landwirtschaft gefördert; 3. mit der Umstellung auf die PA werden entsprechende ...

The EU and the USA are currently negotiating the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), an agreement which could have major consequences for trade in agricultural products. In a document explaining the EU's TTIP proposal on agriculture, the European Commission said that it is aimed at increasing EU-US imports and exports by reducing tariffs and non-tariff protection, while respecting the individual agricultural models and standards of the EU and USA. This infographic gives an overview ...

In light of the challenges currently facing the agriculture sector in the EU, an effective promotion policy becomes an important instrument in helping European agriculture to compete on world markets. Given the contribution the agri-food sector makes to total EU exports, it is essential for it to improve its competitiveness and market share. To support this objective, a new promotion policy for EU agricultural products has been developed, applicable since 1 December 2015. Based on a new Regulation ...

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment accompanying its proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on information provision and promotion measures for agricultural products on the internal market and in third countries (COM (2013) 812 final which was submitted on 21 November 2013. It analyses whether the principal criteria laid down in the Commission’s own Impact Assessment Guidelines ...

Development of the outermost regions is hindered by a number of geographical and economic factors. To offset these, the EU has introduced specific measures (POSEI) for the agricultural sector. The Commission proposes to revise the POSEI Regulation to align it with the requirements of the Lisbon Treaty and to update and simplify some provisions.

Non-tariff barriers and regulatory divergence are considered as the main challenge for a potential comprehensive EU-US trade and investment agreement. Stemming from different values, public preferences and different approaches towards risk management, these regulatory issues are greatest in the fields of protection of health, safety and the environment. Efforts in transatlantic regulatory cooperation date back to the 1990s, but progress has been difficult to achieve.
