About MegaPesca FishFiles|
The most important e-Service available for decision makers in
food and fisheries policy and development.
Love it or hate it, if you are involved with the EU fishery sector,
you are affected by EU policies and legislation. The Common Fisheries
Policy is here to stay, and food safety regulations are becoming
tougher as every year passes.
Market interventions, fleet adjustments, quotas, conservation measures, fisheries agreements all have a
major impact on supplies and the market. And the change almost on a weekly basis. If you are a manager and
decision maker (whether in the public or commercial sector), you need to keep up to date and have at hand
detailed information on what is going on at the European level.
The EU also sets hygiene and HACCP standards for EU suppliers of
fishery products. Third country suppliers (i.e. non-EU) must also
put in place health controls which are "at least equivalent" to
those laid down in EU Directives. Food safety requirements are changing
all the time; veterinary drug residue controls, new limits for heavy
metals in fishery products were introduced recently, traceability
requirements will come into force in 2005. If you trade in fishery
products, you need to keep up to date with changes like these.
You can spend hours each week on the Web tracking the Official Journal and all of the other sites. Or you
can let a respected consultancy firm in this field do the job for you. MegaPescaīs
FishFiles Professional service can keep you 100% up to date on all of these issues.
For an annual (and fully-inclusive) fee of just US$149, we send subscribers an email at the start of each
month with lists of all the new documents issued by the EU during the previous 30 days. For convenience these
are divided into two parts- Common Fisheries Policy and Fish Hygiene. Each entry has a brief note on the
contents, written by a leading expert in the field, indicating the relevance and content. Check if there is
anything of interest. A click on the hyperlink takes you to our password-protected Web page. Simply enter
your email address and password to access the document.
Most documents are in Adobe Acrobat format for you to print or to keep on your hard disk for reference.
Typical content will include:
Council Directives, Council Regulations and Commission Decision
published on the Official Journal of the European Communities. We
select items which are of most relevance to EU fisheries policy
and the international fish trade, with a special focus on fisheries
management and food safety issues.
Reports published by DG Fisheries and DG SANCO on technical issues, including reports of studies and
inspection missions to third countries.
Other reports, white and green papers containing policy proposals
which are likely to affect supplies and markets for fisheries products.
Selected items from the minutes of the relevant standing committees and questions in the EU Parliament of
the European Communities.
