  • [01] La Commission approuve l'enregistrement d'une huitième liste de produits agricoles et alimentaires

    La Commission européenne a approuvé un règlement préparé par M. Franz Fischler, Commissaire pour l'agriculture et le développement rural, visant à enregistrer 12 dénominations de produits agricoles et alimentaires en vertu de la législation approuvée par le Conseil des Ministres sur la protection des indications géographiques (IGP) et des appellations d'origine (AOP). Ces 12 produits proviennent d'Allemagne (six bières), de Grèce (trois fruits et légumes et deux huiles d'olive) et d'Italie (un produit à base de viande). Ils s'ajoutent aux 464 dénominations déjà protégées par sept décisions précédentes. Cet enregistrement implique que l'utilisation des dénominations enregistrées soit réservée aux producteurs d'une zone délimitée qui respectent des règles et critères de production bien précis pour ces produits.

    [02] Commission says : "No ban on car advertising"

    The European Commissioner responsible for Transport policy, Neil Kinnock, categorically denied that the Commission has any plans whatsoever to introduce a ban on car advertising. "These stories are totally false and do great harm by creating unnecessary concern. I wish to reassure everybody, industry and consumers, that there are no plans to ban car advertising." The origins of this false story lie in the fact that, the UK, in preparing for its Presidency of the European Union (which ran from 1 January to 30 June this year), asked the services of the Commission (DGVII) to investigate informally whether there would be any benefit in extending throughout Europe a voluntary code of conduct. Under this code, UK advertisers voluntarily agree not to link base publicity for cars on their speed performance. A note was therefore drafted detailing the UK code and some elements of explanation and widely circulated to manufacturers, advertisers, consumer associations, etc. There was very little support for such a proposal and the Commission itself does not support it. The UK, as is the right of a presidency, nonetheless tabled the issue for discussion at a high level working group that meets regularly to discuss safety issues.
