FNSEA Welcomes New Registration Measures

29 July 2013

FRANCE - The French farming union FNSEA has welcomed the moves by the French government to set out a registration system for pig farms.

The move is part of the simplification of the system that was laid out in the strategic plan for the French pig sector is April.

A spokesman for FNSEA said that although the measure only partly meets the union’s initial request for harmonisation of the regulations classifying farms in the EU, it is a welcome move.

The union said it is the first step to simplifying the administrative procedures in the sector and cutting red tape and easing the financial burden.

“This is an encouraging sign, which has been eagerly awaited by pig farmers, who are in favour of modernisation of farms. It will produce a significant improvement in performance in the environmental, health, economic aspects of the sector and will help to increase competitiveness.”

The union urged the government to produce the documents for the new measures and promised to keep a close watch on their implementation to ensure they do produce flexibility and that they do not fail.
