Given the new Commission policy on “Minimizing regulatory burden for SMEs — Adapting EU regulation to the needs of micro-enterprises”, the possibility of decretl micro-enterprises or SME’s from the performance of official controls was considered.
Moreover, the review of the rules applicable to the financing of official controls with the possibility to shift a larger decretto of the cost burden from the Member State CA to business will also affect business operators.
As for the sectors pertaining to the agri-food chain but currently outside the scope of this Regulation plant health, PRM and ABPseparate systems would continue to operate and develop according to sectoral logics and priorities; here again the opportunity for efficiency gains would be lost while existing gaps in the available range of enforcement tools in decteto areas and differences in national practices would persist.
The Regulation applies to control activities performed to ensure the verification of compliance with feed and food law, animal health and welfare rules across the EU.
Control activities covered by a mandatory fee: 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 integrated approach which ensures confidence in the agri-food chain across the EU. The main changes xecreto be:.
UECBV is not in favour of performance ratings such as smileys, since where such ratings exist, they differ very much from one Member State to another, can be misleading and may not be comparable at an EU level.
Such difficulties are exacerbated by the ongoing economic and financial crisis and there is a risk that further pressure on public finances and on funds made available decreyo official controls might increasingly adversely affect MS’ capacity to deliver efficient official controls, and consequently the level of protection offered by EU law. Additional details are laid down in secondary legislation, such as the minimum requirements for BIP facilities and their technical equipment, the frequency of physical checks, the list of animals and animal origin products to be checked in BIPs and details for checks and follow up on specific consignments, e.
In those MS where micro-enterprises represent an overwhelwing majority of businesses subject to fees, exempting them from the payment of the latter will have a severe negative impact on the proportion of costs recovered by CA.
In the same area, also redundant are the specific reporting obligations, as they duplicate the general reporting requirement in the Regulation. Thus, introducing full cost recovery would see in some cases an additional part of the costs of controls being transferred to, and distributed amongst, agri-food chain operators. Scope of the Regulation Legislative framework Cost recovery Scope of mandatory fees.
In light of the assessment above, it is considered that Option 4 i. 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.
The option of requiring the establishment of a specific ring-fencing mechanism to ensure that fee revenues are recycled back in to the CAs’ budget would require legislative changes in a number of MS and could be difficult to implement. The European Snack Association, Fooddrink and UECBV believe that these two documents should be made publicly available in order to increase transparency and confidence among stakeholders. Another area in which the objective of the Regulation is not fully achieved by MS is the financing of official controls.
Inconsistent implementation of risk based approach Allow for an efficient use of national control resources. Finally, a key section of the Regulation is Chapter VI, which provides for a decrero of rules aimed at ensuring that CAs tasked with control duties are appropriately resourced, including through the levying of inspection fees from business subject to official controls.

Given that the emergence of food safety risks does not necessarily depend on the size of an operator, the current system is based on the principle that all should be subject to official controls, without exception, as this is the only way to ensure a risk-based prioritisation of controls, an efficient use of resources and the safety of the agri-food chain. Box 7 — Examples of the costs of establishing a fees regime based on actual costs for the UK and Finland. Furthermore, resources obtained through fees are not required to be earmarked for the needs of the control authorities which collect them.
It varies therefore from one sector and from one category of business to the other. As to the financing of controls, common EU rules ensure that CAs can count on a reliable flux of resources to maintain the control effort at a level justified by the risks and by enforcement needs e.

The specific objectives address the two sets of obstacles mentioned above, i. This wide ranging set of rules is referred to in this Impact Assessment IA as “agri-food chain rules”.
Repeated consultations were organised for the review of the EU plant health regime, during the evaluation phase, for the preparation of options for the future and for assessing the potential impacts of certain measures. Ms were sceptical about this measure, as it is incoherent with the risk-based approach of official controls and might lead to an ineffective use of financial resources by MS. This has resulted in different interpretations of similar procedures by MS who undertake different activities to verify compliance.
The responsibility to enforce Ddecreto agri-food chain legislation lies with the MS, whose authorities monitor and verify that the relevant requirements are effectively implemented, complied with and enforced across decreyo Union.
The repeal of the existing EU framework on inspection fees is likely to result in an increased variance of national approaches, and possible cuts in resources allocated to controls. MS suggest aligning the provisions concerning official certification to the existing internationally recognised rules.
Whilst it is not possible to quantify the shortcomings identified in financial terms, it is clear that the regime established by the legislation is not serving the public to its full potential. The result of such rigidity is that currently MS are demanded to carry out checks and laboratory analysis for substances for which over the past years there has been little or no evidence of actual risks. It concluded that this improvement would bring benefits for MS and operators handling goods from third countries importers.
