ABOUT THE COMMITTEE

The European Parliament’s Public Health and Food Safety Committee is responsible for legislation relating to environmental policies. It also works on European solutions to health problems, and scrutinises food safety regulations.

MAIN ECR PRIORITIES

Climate change

One of the most significant conservation challenges Europe faces today is climate change. While we recognise the urgent need to address this issue, Europe needs solutions that work, and should not be to the detriment of jobs and growth. Our parliamentarians have been leading efforts to support the move to a low carbon economy, while acknowledging the differing capabilities of Member States to develop climate solutions that are economically feasible and implantable, and tested for their impact on European competitiveness.

Food safety

Our MEPs are at the forefront of negotiations to improve the existing regulatory framework for food and food additives, through the strengthening of surveillance, labelling and enforcement measures

Public health

ECR MEPs have worked tirelessly on legislation to enhance the safety of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, as well as campaigns highlighting the fight against counterfeit medicinal products, measures to combat drug resistance, and recommendations to improve patient safety provisions.
