Segurança dos alimentos

01-02-2018

A política europeia em matéria de segurança dos alimentos tem um duplo objetivo: proteger a saúde humana e os interesses dos consumidores e fomentar o bom funcionamento do mercado único europeu.

Official controls along the food chain

10-03-2017

Controls undertaken by Member States to ensure the safety of our food are essential. The operating principals of the 'official controls' are to be updated and modernised. Parliament is expected to adopt during its March II plenary its second-reading position, following a trilogue agreement with the Council, on the proposal which aims to guarantee that food business operators are controlled with equal effectiveness in all Member States throughout the whole food chain.

Chernobyl 30 years on: Environmental and health effects

22-04-2016

In the early hours of 26 April 1986, an accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and the explosions it triggered caused a major release of nuclear radioactive material into the atmosphere. Radionuclides were scattered in the vicinity of the plant and over much of Europe. The Chernobyl fallout had a major impact on both agricultural and natural ecosystems in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine, as well as in many other European countries. Radionuclides were taken up by plants and later by animals. In ...

In the early hours of 26 April 1986, an accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and the explosions it triggered caused a major release of nuclear radioactive material into the atmosphere. Radionuclides were scattered in the vicinity of the plant and over much of Europe. The Chernobyl fallout had a major impact on both agricultural and natural ecosystems in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine, as well as in many other European countries. Radionuclides were taken up by plants and later by animals. In some areas, they were subsequently found in milk, meat, forest food products, freshwater fish and wood. Environmental impacts vary according to location and ecosystem. Forests and fresh water bodies have been among the most affected ecosystems. The impacts on wildlife in the vicinity of the Chernobyl plant are disputed. The impacts on human health have been extensively studied, although experts are not unanimous in their views. Official assessments by United Nations agencies have been challenged. The major population groups exposed were clean-up workers, evacuees and residents of contaminated areas of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. There has been no clear evidence of any measurable increase in radiation-induced adverse health effects in other European countries. The immediate and short-term effects resulting from heavy fallout exposure include radiation sickness and cataracts. Late effects are thyroid cancer, especially in children and adolescents, and leukaemia among exposed workers. The accident has also had important psychosocial effects.

The aim of the workshop was to provide background information and advice for the members of the ENVI Committee and to provide input for the EP draft implementation report on Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004. At the workshop, many of the speakers - including representatives of NGOs, industry and academia - called for further harmonisation of legislation governing food contact materials. As regards non-harmonised food contact materials, there was a general agreement regarding the need for EU level guidelines to support the risk assessment, enforcement and compliance of such materials.

Fighting food fraud

16-01-2014

Concern about the rising number of incidents of food fraud has led to calls for stronger action in this area, not least because the food chain in Europe is worth some €750 billion a year. Following the horsemeat scandal, which hit the EU at the beginning of 2013, the European Commission set about restoring consumer and market confidence through a number of measures, including proposals to strengthen controls along the food chain and toughen penalties for fraudsters.
