NAM criticizes proposed changes in EU poultry regulations.
Press Release Summary:
June 3, 2008 - Commenting on proposed changes in EU regulations on access for imported poultry into EU markets, Shaun Donnelly of NAM said that the Commission is not living up to high-level political commitments to eliminate the non-tariff barrier to U.S. poultry exports to the EU. The long-awaited proposal is fraught with loopholes, delays, reporting requirements, and conditions. It has been acknowledged, even by EU authorities, that there is no scientific basis to continue the decade-long ban.
