From the legal issues of financing official controls of foodstuffs
Sulle questioni giuridiche legate al finanziamento del controllo ufficiale degli alimenti

Languages of publication



The purpose of these deliberations is an attempt to answer the question of whether the legal instruments concerning the financing of statutory food controls ensure proper functioning of this form of supervision. In particular, the functioning of the system of fees in various EU Member States has been analysed. It has been found out that despite the fact that the EU legislator has regulated the system of financing official controls of foodstuffs, most national regulations do not provide sufficiently for the proper functioning of the control system, and do not ensure that all costs incurred are recovered. Moreover, the unclear criteria according to which the financing system operates reduces confidence in public administration bodies.
L’obiettivo delle considerazioni è di rispondere alla domanda se gli strumenti giuridici relativi al finanziamento del controllo ufficiale degli alimenti svolto da parte degli organi dello Stato riescano a garantire il suo corretto svolgimento. L’autrice ha fornito una descrizione generale del funzionamento del sistema di pagamenti in vari Stati membri dell’UE. Nella parte conclusiva, ha affermato che, benché il legislatore dell’UE abbia disciplinato il sistema di finanziamento dei controlli ufficiale degli alimenti nazionali, nella maggior parte dei casi le regolazioni non garantiscono la copertura di tutti i costi delle attività di controllo svolte. Inoltre, il loro finanziamento in base a criteri vaghi porta ad abbassare il livello di fiducia nelle amministrazioni pubbliche.
