Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
833. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if a regulatory impact analysis of the farm to fork strategy has been carried out; if so, if the analysis will be made available; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5518/20]
The Farm to Fork Strategy is currently under development by the EU Commission. The Strategy is scheduled for publication later this month.
The Commission have advised that no impact assessment will be carried out ahead of the adoption of the strategy as a whole. They have also advised that Relevant Better Regulation tools will be applied to the individual initiatives of the strategy. Impact assessments will be carried out where such initiatives are expected to produce significant environmental, social or economic impacts.
