Cloning of animals kept and reproduced for farming purposes

02-09-2015

In 2013 the European Commission proposed a directive according to which Member States would temporarily ban the use of the technique of cloning in mammals used for farming purposes. The EP is now set to adopt its first reading position on the dossier, based on a report drawn up jointly by the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development (AGRI) and the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI). Supporting such a ban, albeit through a regulation rather than a directive, the two ...

In 2013 the European Commission proposed a directive according to which Member States would temporarily ban the use of the technique of cloning in mammals used for farming purposes. The EP is now set to adopt its first reading position on the dossier, based on a report drawn up jointly by the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development (AGRI) and the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI). Supporting such a ban, albeit through a regulation rather than a directive, the two Committees envisage extending it to all animal species used for farming purposes. The report also proposes to prohibit imports of any products, notably food, derived from cloned animals and their descendants. Possible restrictions on imports of cloned-animal-derived food in the EU are the subject of a parallel proposal by the Commission for a Council directive.

It does not attempt to deal with the substance of the proposals and is drafted for informational and background purposes to assist the AGRI committee and its Members in their work.

Animal-based Welfare Monitoring

16-03-2009

The study examines the potential for introducing a European system of on-farm assessment of animal welfare using animal-based indicators. Part 1 describes the scientific and techno-logical state-of-the-art regarding animal-based welfare indicators and monitoring technology. Part 2 studies the socio-economic impact of introducing an animal-based welfare monitoring system on livestock production in EU Member States.
