The Expert Group is a consultative entity whose tasks are to provide advice and expertise to the Commission services concerning:

  • the functioning of the agricultural commodity derivatives and spot markets,
  • the implementing of existing EU legislation and policies,
  • the preparation of legislative proposals and policy initiatives in this field.
