‘Fur Free Europe': Commission decides to register new European Citizens' Initiative on banning fur in the EU
Today, the European Commission decided to register a European Citizens' Initiative entitled ‘Fur Free Europe'. The organisers of the initiative call on the Commission to introduce an EU-wide ban on keeping and killing animals for the purpose of fur production. They also ask for a ban on placing such fur and products containing it on the EU market.
As the European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) fulfils the formal conditions, the Commission considers that this it is legally admissible. The Commission has not analysed the substance of the proposal at this stage.CONTINUE READING ON: ec.europa.eu
