(Brussels, 12 October 2017) Ahead of the last trilogue on agricultural issues in the Omnibus Regulation, FoodDrinkEurope warns that amendments, which go beyond simplification, could significantly change the 2013 political agreement on the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Major changes proposed by the European Parliament and the Council should be given appropriate consideration and be preceded by an impact assessment, in line with Better Regulation. Hence, such changes should not be accepted.
