In addition two task forces with a limited number of Member States representatives were held The possibility decretp fully adjust the control effort to the level of risk is however limited by two different factors: In Junethe discussion paper was also sent to decreo Chief Veterinary Officers CVOs in order to identify any specific issues concerning in particular animal health laboratories. A similar requirement exists in relation to the residues monitoring plans of third countries exporting animals or animal products to the EU.

Overview of the legislative framework applicable to official controls along the food chain.

EUR-Lex Access to European Union law

FEFAC is of the opinion that the dedreto for an operator to call for a second expert opinion should be systematic. The report showed that the new rules have introduced important changes to the way competent authorities “CA” organise and carry out official controls, establishing a more ddcreto approach which ensures confidence in the agri-food chain across the EU. In particular, this can give an indication of the charges which may result from the expansion of decreti scope of mandatory fees assuming that MS generally devote similar levels of effort to official controls, guaranteeing equivalent levels of efficiency.

The Commission started a second consultation of MS through an ad hoc MS experts working group which met on 7 September In addition to discussions with MS, stakeholder consultation was a key element of the two studies dfcreto out to external consultants in the field of the financing of official controls. The main problems identified and the provisional options were also presented and discussed at meetings of the Heads of Food Safety Agencies on 29 June-1 July and on 8 December The main purpose of this exercise is to reinforce dereto safety of the dwcreto chain in its broadest meaning by strengthening the enforcement mechanisms of the relevant EU rules and enable a more efficient implementation of the harmonised framework which applies to food, feed, animals, seeds and plants.


As regards the financing of official controls, the control activities covered by a mandatory fee would remain unchanged with the only exceptions being in the field of plant health, where mandatory fees will be introduced for official controls linked to plant passport obligations, and in the field of PRM, where it is envisaged that the principle of full cost recovery through fees would be established for certification.

In fact, safety of goods from third countries is ensured not decretl through risk based controls carried out by national authorities at any stage of the food chain, but, most importantly, by sanitary checks carried out at the outer borders of the EU on goods which present an decretoo risk for human, animal or plant health.

Safety — Increased efficiency of the risk based use of resources would ensure a better enforcement of agri-food chain rules covered by the Regulation food and feed law, including rules on residues of veterinary medicines[71], FCM and GMOs, and animal health and welfare rules and thus a higher level of protection of the safety of the agri-food chain.

Data available from MS currently charging such fees shows that when these are levied upon all operators subject to controls irrespective decrrto whether an inspection is actually carried out during a reference period the amounts are modulated according to the size or the throughput of the business and represent a rather negligible fraction of production costs.

It varies therefore from one sector and from one category of business to the other. Moreover, certain sectors pertaining to the agri-food chain were not included in the scope of the Regulation – i. In order to afford European Union EU citizens a high level of human, animal and plant health, and guarantee the functioning of the internal market, Union legislation provides for a set of harmonised rules to prevent, eliminate or reduce the level of health risk to humans, animals and plants, which may arise along the agri-food chain.

In turn, economic operators would benefit from a more focused, and fully risk based system of controls. Moreover, by expanding the scope of the list of mandatory fees, this option also addresses other issues, giving rise to the further effects detailed below.

Thus, national CAs responsible for the implementation and enforcement of agri-food chain rules are mainly affected by the present review[34] currently, there are over FTE staff involved in the delivery of official controls within the 27 MS.


The Animal Health Law, including related controls aspects, was discussed at numerous Chief Veterinary Officers’ working group meeting since early Current rules are based on the principle of cost recovery where fees are mandatory.

Given the new Commission policy on “Minimizing regulatory burden for SMEs — Adapting EU regulation to the needs of micro-enterprises”, the possibility of exempting micro-enterprises or SME’s from the performance of official controls was considered. This is expected to result in a positive increase of the legitimacy of the financing system.

As the establishment and application of cost based fees in all areas would require some adjustments in the MS current systems, a transition period of 3 years would be provided. Inefficient use of control resources including at the EU borders could imply the perpetuation of avoidable administrative costs and burdens for operators. The analysis carried out above is fully in line with the views of competent authorities and industry.

Inconsistencies and legal gaps are due to the fact that EU legislation on official controls has in the areas of plant health, PRM and ABP developed separately from the general framework established by the Regulation, and overlap in control requirements derived from 5523-09 co-existence, for animal health related controls, of the Regulation with pre-existing sectoral legislation.

A final draft was sent to the group, whose members provided comments at a last meeting on 27 January which have been incorporated into the IA. Increased efficiency of the risk based use of control resources and mobilisation of dedicated financial resources reducing pressure on national finances allow progress towards the primary objective of maintaining efficient controls and safety of the agri-food chain.

Such fees include transport costs, document control and verification procedures and are claimed to represent full cost recovery.

The assessment of each option in terms of environmental impacts and of impacts on employment rates has not identified significant impacts either negative or positive. Current rules require MSs to publish and communicate to the Commission fees’ calculation methods.

To ensure agri-food chain decrreto are enforced by Member States MS across the EU in a harmonised manner, a legislative framework for the organisation of official controls has been established.
