DG SANCO 16-11-2006 Food and Veterinary Office - Special Reports : General Overview Reports - General Overview Report of a Serie
requires javascript Overview reports provide a summary of a series of individual audits and seek to identify key findings of relevance and interest to all stakeholders. They thus allow feedback on the sector or legislation in question, rather than on individual country performance. They illustrate examples of areas where legislation has poor or varied implementation, as well as examples of good practice. They are used to discuss with Member States, through Standing Committees or through targeted training meetings, the overall effectiveness of enforcement measures and how these measures can be improved. This is also important in reviewing whether legislation is working as intended. This page allows you to list all the overview reports or to identify those reports for a particular sector. Latest reports Overview reports can be retrieved from our database in PDF file format (for more information about PDF files please see the EUROPA FAQ section on PDF). Search Form

IRLANDE 17/07/07 Results of 2006 National Residue Monitoring Plan The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food today released the results of tests carried out under the National Residue Monitoring Plan for 2006, which it implements under Service Contract to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI). During 2006, some 28,000 samples were tested following sampling on both a targeted and suspect basis from 11 domestic food-producing species and from products imported from Third Countries. The tests covered 18 distinct residue groups (each residue group is in turn comprised of a number of sub-groups) which fall into three broad categories: banned substances such as growth-promoting hormones and beta-agonists, approved veterinary medicines (these usually arise where animals enter the food chain before expiry of the prescribed withdrawal period for the medicine concerned) and finally, environmental contaminants. As regards domestic production, the overall level of positive samples in 2006 was 0.17%. 17 July, 2007

CONSEIL DE L EUROPE - Convention européenne sur la protection des animaux en transport international (révisée) The revised Convention builds on the lessons learnt from the last 30 years of experience and scientific results made available during this period. It contains provisions designed to overcome defects and to facilitate the implementation of the principles of the Convention. It was built as a framework convention laying down essential principles applying to all species. It provides for technical protocols which can be amended following a simplified procedure, facilitating thereby their updating in the light of scientific evidence and experience acquired. The revised Convention provides for the denunciation of the original Convention (ETS No. 065) which ensures that the Parties are thus not simultaneously bound by contradictory undertakings.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question P-008172-16 Live cattle exports Last week it was reported that there had been further decreases in the number of live cattle being exported from Ireland. Recent figures have found that there has been a 24.3% decrease, or a fall of 35 364 compared with the corresponding period in 2015. While the biggest drop (20 167, a drop of 52.4%) can be attributed to trade North and South due to a period of serious exchange rate volatility, the problem is the same with Britain (2 713, a drop of 39.1%). On top of this there are emerging problems with live exports to Italy, currently Ireland’s fifth biggest export destination. Due to the relative closeness of the Irish and Italian beef price, Italian processors have been found to discriminate in favour of domestic produce, causing prices to drop.
