In April 2010, AGRI launched the Impact Assessment (IA) on the 'CAP twd 2020'. The adoption of the legal proposal is foreseen for autumn 2011. The new legal framework will enter into force by 1 January 2014 until end 2020. SANCO was associated to this exercise as a member of the IA Steering group (IASG) right from the start.
During the IA exercise, AGRI has requested the assistance of Commission services to contribute to the analysis. SANCO responded to this call by creating the project for 'Assessing the impacts of EU rules in the area of animal health and welfare, plant health, consumer choice, food and feed safety and public health on agriculture and the food sector'. The outcome of this project is the enclosed background paper which summarises the findings of the assessment in order to provide input for the elaboration of the IA Final report.
SANCO background paper 'CAP towards 2020 - Health and Consumer perspective' can be found here.
