Report on the proposal for a Regulation on the transparency and sustainability of the EU risk assessment in the food chain
The proposal aims at amending the General Food Law Regulation1 (the “GFL Regulation”), and eight related legislative acts2 when it comes to risk assessment in the food chain. The Commission proposal was based on Article 43 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), on agriculture, Article 114 TFEU on harmonisation in the internal market, and Article 168(4)(b) TFEU on public health. An amendment tabled in ENVI seeks to add Article 192(1) TFEU, on the environment, to the legal basis.
