Regulatory Committees

Regulatory Committees assist the European Commission in the development of food safety measures at all stages of the food chain. The “from the farm to the fork” approach covers areas such as food and feed safety, animal health, animal welfare and plant health.

The Committees play a key role in the EU decision-making process as Committee members are representatives of the EU Member States. The Commission may consult the relevant Regulatory Committee on a proposal. The Committee can then deliver an Opinion which may allow the measure to be formally adopted by the Commission in accordance with the appropriate procedure.

In the interests of transparency, agendas and summary reports of the following Regulatory Committees meetings are on the internet.

There are also several other Regulatory Committees:

International Affairs
Import Conditions
Pets and Animal Welfare
