What if crop protection were environment-friendly?

11-02-2020

Pesticides are indispensable in modern agriculture, but the EU wants crop protection to be responsible and eco-friendly. What options are there to reduce the use of synthetic pesticides?

New plant-breeding techniques: Applicability of EU GMO rules

10-10-2019

New plant genetic modification techniques, referred to as 'gene editing' or 'genome editing', have evolved rapidly in recent years, allowing much faster and more precise results than conventional plant-breeding techniques. They are seen as a promising innovative field for the agri-food industry, offering great technical potential. There is, however, considerable debate as to how these new techniques should be regulated, and whether some or all of them should fall within the scope of EU legislation ...

New plant genetic modification techniques, referred to as 'gene editing' or 'genome editing', have evolved rapidly in recent years, allowing much faster and more precise results than conventional plant-breeding techniques. They are seen as a promising innovative field for the agri-food industry, offering great technical potential. There is, however, considerable debate as to how these new techniques should be regulated, and whether some or all of them should fall within the scope of EU legislation on genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Those who take the view that the new techniques should be exempt from GMO legislation generally argue that the end product is very similar to products generated using conventional breeding techniques, or that similar changes could also occur naturally. Those who consider that the new techniques should fall within the scope of GMO legislation contend that the processes used mean that plants bred using the new techniques are in fact genetically modified. In July 2018, the European Court of Justice gave a judgment ruling that genome-edited organisms fall under the scope of European GMO legislation. While welcomed by some, the judgment has also sparked criticism and calls for the new European Commission to amend EU GMO legislation. This is an updated edition of a 2016 Briefing.

Hearings of the Commissioners-designate: Stella Kyriakides - Health

26-09-2019

This briefing is one in a set looking at the Commissioners-designate and their portfolios as put forward by Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen. Each candidate faces a three-hour public hearing, organised by one or more parliamentary committees. After that process, those committees will judge the candidates' suitability for the role based on 'their general competence, European commitment and personal independence', as well as their 'knowledge of their prospective portfolio and their communication ...

This briefing is one in a set looking at the Commissioners-designate and their portfolios as put forward by Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen. Each candidate faces a three-hour public hearing, organised by one or more parliamentary committees. After that process, those committees will judge the candidates' suitability for the role based on 'their general competence, European commitment and personal independence', as well as their 'knowledge of their prospective portfolio and their communication skills'. At the end of the hearings process, Parliament votes on the proposed Commission as a bloc, and under the Treaties may only reject the entire College of Commissioners, rather than individual candidates. The Briefing provides an overview of key issues in the portfolio areas, as well as Parliament's activity in the last term in that field. It also includes a brief introduction to the candidate.

Renewing the approval for glyphosate

23-10-2017

Glyphosate, one of the world's most widely used active substances in herbicides, has recently become the subject of controversy. The European Commission now proposes to renew its approval for 10 years. The ENVI committee has adopted a motion for a resolution calling for glyphosate to be phased out by 2020, and a vote on this issue is expected during the October II plenary session.

Parliament rejects criteria for endocrine disruptors

12-10-2017

On 4 October 2017, the European Parliament voted to object to the European Commission's draft regulation setting out criteria for identifying endocrine disruptors in the area of plant protection products (PPPs). The vote followed the Parliament's Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) backing a motion for resolution to reject the criteria. The Commission says it needs now to reflect on the next steps to take.

Agreement on criteria for endocrine disruptors

On 4 July 2017, the European Commission's Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (SC PAFF), made up of experts from the EU Member States, voted on the Commission's draft regulation setting out criteria for identifying endocrine disruptors in the area of plant protection products (PPPs).

EU-Politik und Rechtsvorschriften auf dem Gebiet der Pestizide: Pflanzenschutzmittel

19-04-2017

Stoffe, die zur Bekämpfung und Vernichtung von Schadorganismen oder vorbeugend gegen solche Schadorganismen eingesetzt werden, werden unter dem Begriff Pestizide zusammengefasst. Hierzu zählen Pflanzenschutzmittel (Verwendung bei Pflanzen in der Landwirtschaft, im Gartenbau, in Parks und Gärten) und Biozidprodukte (Verwendung in anderen Bereichen, beispielsweise zum Schutz von Materialien oder zur Desinfektion). Die Verwendung von Pestiziden ist mit verschiedenen Vorteilen verbunden, wie etwa Bekämpfung ...

Stoffe, die zur Bekämpfung und Vernichtung von Schadorganismen oder vorbeugend gegen solche Schadorganismen eingesetzt werden, werden unter dem Begriff Pestizide zusammengefasst. Hierzu zählen Pflanzenschutzmittel (Verwendung bei Pflanzen in der Landwirtschaft, im Gartenbau, in Parks und Gärten) und Biozidprodukte (Verwendung in anderen Bereichen, beispielsweise zum Schutz von Materialien oder zur Desinfektion). Die Verwendung von Pestiziden ist mit verschiedenen Vorteilen verbunden, wie etwa Bekämpfung von Krankheiten und höheren Erträgen in der Landwirtschaft. Dennoch bergen sie auch einige Nachteile, insbesondere Auswirkungen auf die Umwelt, Risiken für die menschliche Gesundheit und Auswirkungen hinsichtlich des Pflanzenschutzes. Mit den EU-Rechtsvorschriften über Pestizide soll ein hohes Schutzniveau im Bereich der menschlichen Gesundheit und der Umwelt sichergestellt und das Funktionieren des Binnenmarkts verbessert werden. Pflanzenschutzmittel und Biozidprodukte unterliegen einem zweistufigen Zulassungsverfahren: Wirkstoffe werden auf EU-Ebene genehmigt und die Produkte dann in den einzelnen Mitgliedstaaten zugelassen. Darüber hinaus wurden harmonisierte Höchstgehalte für Pflanzenschutzmittelrückstände in Lebensmitteln festgelegt und ein Aktionsrahmen für den nachhaltigen Einsatz von Pestiziden geschaffen. Verschiedene Aspekte der EU-Politik im Bereich Pestizide können als Chancen oder Herausforderungen betrachtet werden, was insbesondere die Kosten für den Wirtschaftszweig, die Zulassungsverfahren und die Nachhaltigkeit betrifft. Die Rechtsvorschriften über Pflanzenschutzmittel und ihre Rückstände werden gegenwärtig von der Europäischen Kommission überprüft. Die entsprechenden Schlussfolgerungen werden Ende 2018 erwartet.
