Organizational changes for better regulation

10 November, 2014

Following the EU elections, Europe starts with a new Parliament and a new Commission of the mandate of the 2015–2019. With the new Commissioners working closely together as a team, led by the Vice-Presidents, several changes may impact future regulations:  pharmaceutical products will be shifted from the Directorate-General for Health and Consumers (DG SANCO) to DG Enterprise, and food waste and biocides will be shifted from DG Environment to DG SANCO, at the latest in early 2015. Work on endocrine disrupter criteria will be shifted to DG SANCO, and ECHA will come under the responsibility of the new DG for Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship, and SMEs. Link
