Risultati ottenuti dalla commissione per le petizioni durante la legislatura 2014-2019 e sfide per il futuro

03-07-2019

Durante la legislatura 2014-2019 l'Unione europea, e in particolare il Parlamento europeo tramite l'apposita commissione per le petizioni (PETI), ha continuato a garantire il diritto dei cittadini di presentare una petizione al Parlamento europeo per sollevare questioni e preoccupazioni e chiedere di avviare una procedura di ricorso in ambiti di competenza dell'UE, mobilitando le istituzioni e gli Stati membri sia su temi al centro del dibattito politico che su questioni "orfane" o "dormienti". ...

Durante la legislatura 2014-2019 l'Unione europea, e in particolare il Parlamento europeo tramite l'apposita commissione per le petizioni (PETI), ha continuato a garantire il diritto dei cittadini di presentare una petizione al Parlamento europeo per sollevare questioni e preoccupazioni e chiedere di avviare una procedura di ricorso in ambiti di competenza dell'UE, mobilitando le istituzioni e gli Stati membri sia su temi al centro del dibattito politico che su questioni "orfane" o "dormienti". Per assicurare un miglior servizio ai cittadini dell'Unione, la commissione ha creato un portale web delle petizioni allo scopo di agevolare la presentazione delle petizioni, consentire una maggiore interazione e fornire servizi di informazione. Ha inoltre adottato nuove linee guida aggiornate per semplificare il trattamento delle petizioni e il relativo processo decisionale, ed è riuscita ad apportare modifiche migliorative al regolamento del Parlamento europeo. La collaborazione con le altre commissioni del Parlamento europeo è diventata più intensa e proficua, anche grazie alla creazione di una rete di petizioni. Per la prima volta, la commissione PETI ha istituito uno speciale gruppo di lavoro sulle questioni relative al benessere dei minori, incaricato di esaminare alcune petizioni sui diritti dei minori e di riferire alla commissione proponendo raccomandazioni. La commissione PETI ha mantenuto buoni rapporti di lavoro con la Commissione, il Consiglio, gli Stati membri e il Mediatore europeo. Ha collaborato fianco a fianco con i servizi del Parlamento europeo, soprattutto con il Servizio giuridico; inoltre, ha incrementato in misura esponenziale il ricorso alle competenze di ricerca sia del dipartimento tematico Diritti dei cittadini e affari costituzionali (per preparare studi e seminari) sia del servizio Ricerca del Parlamento europeo (EPRS). Nel corso della legislatura 2014-2019 ha anche organizzato un numero significativo di audizioni pubbliche. Peraltro, dal confronto tra il numero di relazioni, pareri, interrogazioni con richiesta di risposta orale, risoluzioni e missioni d'informazione delle legislature 2014-2019 e 2009-2014 si evince che la commissione è riuscita anche a mantenere sostanzialmente stabile l'ordinaria attività parlamentare (cfr. allegato I). In tale contesto, la commissione per le petizioni ha continuato a esaminare un numero elevato di petizioni su temi che interessano tutti i settori di attività dell'Unione europea: diritti fondamentali, migrazioni, diritto di petizione, cittadinanza, libera circolazione, discriminazione, iniziativa dei cittadini europei (ICE), diritti dei minori, ambiente, benessere degli animali, disabilità, politiche sociali e occupazione, Brexit, miglioramento della legislazione e applicazione del diritto dell'UE, apertura, trasparenza, accesso ai documenti, conflitto di interessi, accordi internazionali. La commissione PETI si è inoltre occupata di temi estremamente specifici, ad esempio della legislazione ipotecaria e degli strumenti finanziari di rischio, e si è dedicata in modo particolare al tema della disabilità, in ragione dell'importante ruolo che riveste nell'identificazione delle violazioni dei diritti delle persone con disabilità (il cosiddetto "ruolo di protezione" nel quadro dell'UE istituito per attuare la convenzione dell'ONU sui diritti delle persone con disabilità a livello dell'Unione e degli Stati membri).

Food Labelling for Consumers – EU Law, Regulation and Policy Options

15-03-2019

This study, commissioned by the PETI Committee of the European Parliament, provides a brief overview of the relevant EU labelling legislation Member States have to comply with, with regard to labelling of food, including organic products, for consumers, with emphasis on the requirements of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011.

This study, commissioned by the PETI Committee of the European Parliament, provides a brief overview of the relevant EU labelling legislation Member States have to comply with, with regard to labelling of food, including organic products, for consumers, with emphasis on the requirements of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011. It critically assesses these laws and discusses progress - or lack thereof -, in particular with regard to aspects such as safety, health effects, effects for disabled people, etc. It explores and elaborates on the question of whether the current labelling requirements actually result in clearer information to help citizens to better understand the composition and health effects of food. The study also provides brief analyses/assessments of several petitions provided by the PETI Committee. Where possible, this study makes (policy) recommendations for EU institutions and/or Member States, taking into account their respective remits.
