The European Union Agriculture Council has adopted key legislation on food and feed controls and hygiene rules, completing the extensive review of these sectors proposed by the European Commission.

David Byrne, Commissioner for Health and Consumer Protection, welcomed the Council adoption of the Regulation on Food and Feed Controls and the Regulation on Feed Hygiene, in addition to the package of food hygiene legislation which was just recently finalised. All of these new laws will apply from 1 January 2006.

“These laws will radically improve our food safety systems and involve important structural reforms. These rules significantly strengthen consumer protection in the EU,” Byrne said.
