nanotechnology406Europski parlament danas (12. ožujka) izglasao je odbijanje novog nacrta pravila o označavanju nanomaterijala u prehrambenim proizvodima. Zeleni su predložili odbijanje jer bi izuzeli sve postojeće aditive za hranu iz zahtjeva za označavanje.

After the vote, Green food safety and health spokesman Carl Schlyter said: “MEPs have today voted to prevent a backdoor attempt by the Commission to exempt additives in food products from EU labelling rules on nanomaterials. This rejection is a vote for consumer protection and will ensure that consumers are able to know about all nanomaterials contained in the food they consume, including food additives in nano-form.

“The rules proposed by the Commission would have meant nanomaterials used in food additives would no longer have to be labelled on food products. However, given it is precisely as food additives that nanomaterials are mostly used in food products, if at all, this would have totally undermined the proposed labelling rules. Consumers would essentially have remained in the dark about the presence of nanomaterials in food products despite the clear provisions in the existing law to have   labelling of all engineered nanomaterials in food products . Thankfully, the European Parliament stopped the Commission in its tracks and defended existing labelling provisions. Consumers have a right to know what is in the food they are eating.”

Europska komisija predložila je delegiranu uredbu o uključivanju konstruiranih nanomaterijala u uredbu EU-a o informacijama o hrani za potrošače, ali uključila je izuzeće za aditive u hrani. Ovo odbijanje znači da će Komisija sada morati iznijeti novi prijedlog.
