EP: EC must reconsider withdrawal of ‘Made in’ regulation

The European Parliament urged the European Commission to reconsider its decision to withdraw its proposal for a regulation on origin marking, called "made in". The European Parliament has itself lent firm support to this text at the October 2010 first reading, and considers that the Commission should have consulted MEPs before taking such an initiative of withdrawal. The resolution urges the Council to finally address this issue which arouses great expectation on the part of European industry.
Niccolo Rinaldi (IdV, Italy), ALDE spokesman on this regulation, said: "The EU must give a strong and concrete signal to consumers as well as businesses that have not relocated and continue to produce in Europe. The Commission's justification to withdraw its proposal is at the very least questionable. Relying on a recent adverse WTO (World Trade Organisation) judgment against cattle tagging in a dispute between the United States and Canada is not a credible argument because the regulation "made in" rightly excludes agriculture. This legislation rather is in line with the WTO and resembles many origin marking devices already in force in all major trading powers.”
