Defra is seeking comments on a proposal by the European Commission to repeal the existing notification requirement and approval procedure for voluntary beef labelling by amending Council Regulation 1760/2000. However, the compulsory beef labelling provisions set out in the Regulation would remain in force; these apply throughout the supply chain and support effective traceability back to the point of origin.
The Commission’s proposal is based on the argument that the administrative burden and costs involved in applying the current voluntary beef labelling rules outweigh the benefits.
