Currently, the way official controls shall be carried out is under revision. FVE is concerned that this revision of the legislation might be misused as an opportunity to save money.
In light of the several animal disease outbreaks in Europe (e.g. African swine fever), food frauds (e.g. illegally treated animals) and the frequent occurrence of food or feed risks, FVE calls upon the EU Institutions to strengthen the consumer protection and the position of the veterinarian in the official controls.
