Details

The rapporteur insisted that the compulsory labelling of all products was necessary, including industrially processed products (sterilised tinned food). The creation of two markets should be avoided whereby consumers would be faced, on the one hand, with labelled products which were more expensive because they offered an additional guarantee and, on the other, similar products at a cheaper price because their consumption was riskier. Commissioner Fischler said that the regulation in question should provide a guarantee of origin for beef and cattle, from the farm to the consumer, in order to win the latter’s confidence. This was why a compulsory labelling system was needed. In this respect, as imposing such a procedure would require a certain degree of preparation, Mr Fischler considered it appropriate to implement an optional system for a transitional period. Finally, the Commission was prepared to accept Article 100a as the legal basis for the regulation in question but Mr Fischler underlined that, in this case, the current debate would amount to a first reading. As a result the Commission would be unable to act with the requisite degree of urgency in this area.

Details

In its conclusions of 14 May 1996 the Council declared that TSE (transmittable spongiform encephalopathy) was a public health issue and took the view that all appropriate steps should be taken to eradicate the risk of possible transmission of BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy). It considered that there was a need for substantial improvements in the level of cooperation and coordination of research activities and in the exchange of information in this area and therefore called on the Commission to take suitable steps towards achieving this. It also called on the Commission to continue to provide updated information on the research work being carried out under the Fourth Framework Programme and, in particular, to give an account of recent calls for proposals concerning transmittable BSE and its possible link with neuro-degenerative diseases in humans. The Commission was to intensify its research activities in this field to include subject areas such as basic and applied biology, human and animal health and diagnostic procedures, particularly in association with the life science programmes. The Council agreed to look into this question again at the next Research Council meeting (5 December 1996) on the basis of the communication from the Commission, taking into account current research activities, including work under way or being planned in the Member States, and scientific opinion emanating from various expert groups, and in particular from that chaired by Professor Weissman and the Multidisciplinary Scientific Committee.

The Commission was to intensify its research activities in this field to include subject areas such as basic and applied biology, human and animal health and diagnostic procedures, particularly in association with the life science programmes. The Council agreed to look into this question again at the next Research Council meeting (5 December 1996) on the basis of the communication from the Commission, taking into account current research activities, including work under way or being planned in the Member States, and scientific opinion emanating from various expert groups, and in particular from that chaired by Professor Weissman and the Multidisciplinary Scientific Committee.

The creation of two markets should be avoided whereby consumers would be faced, on the one hand, with labelled products which were more expensive because they offered an additional guarantee and, on the other, similar products at a cheaper price because their consumption was riskier. Commissioner Fischler said that the regulation in question should provide a guarantee of origin for beef and cattle, from the farm to the consumer, in order to win the latter’s confidence. This was why a compulsory labelling system was needed. In this respect, as imposing such a procedure would require a certain degree of preparation, Mr Fischler considered it appropriate to implement an optional system for a transitional period. Finally, the Commission was prepared to accept Article 100a as the legal basis for the regulation in question but Mr Fischler underlined that, in this case, the current debate would amount to a first reading. As a result the Commission would be unable to act with the requisite degree of urgency in this area.
