JUILLET 2011 : la Communauté Européenne reporte la révision de sa directive sur les produits du tabac

Message par béavapote le Jeu 21 Juil - 1:28

Voici les toutes dernières informations de la Communauté Européenne :

la CE veut se pencher sur les nouveaux produits du tabac, notamment sur les cigarettes électroniques, et reporte donc la révision de sa directive 2001/37/EC concernant les produits du tabac jusqu'en 2012 !

Et je vous avoue que je ne sais pas si c'est un bien ou un mal Rolling Eyes

Revision of tobacco products directive not likely before 2012
By Sophie Petitjean | Wednesday 13 July 2011

Revision of Directive 2001/37/EC on the manufacture, presentation and sale of tobacco products is likely to be a difficult exercise, as evidenced by the lunch-debate, held on 12 July, at the invitation of MEP Csaba Tabajdi (S&D, Hungary). Two opposing views clashed, although the tobacco industry (as such) was not represented: on one side, tobacco growers urged decision makers to avoid any disproportionate measures that might have an impact on jobs and on the industry’s earnings, and on the other, anti-tobacco organisations denounced tobacco’s effects on health.

Commissioner John Dalli (health and consumers) adopted a very clear position: “Tobacco control measures aim to save lives, not to make farmers’ lives more complicated. The highest costs, in my mind, are the costs to health. Growers want to protect their crops. The tobacco industry wants to protect its business. Policy makers must protect people’s health. We must protect those 650,000 lives that are lost every year [because of tobacco],” he declared, saying he would present his proposal in 2012.

In spite of this apparent commitment, the anti-tobacco camp fears the revision may be postponed under pressure from the industry. “In principle, the Commission was supposed to present its proposal at the end of 2011. It is rumoured that it won’t do so until the end of 2012 under the Cypriot EU Presidency, on the one hand because the impact study is extremely complicated (it should have been completed by now) and on the other because the consultation gave rise to 80,000 responses orchestrated by the tobacco industry,” explained Florence Berteletti, head of Partenariat sans fumée. “If the proposal comes out in mid-2012, the problem is that Parliament and the Council will have only one year to work out an agreement. That is impossible on such a complicated issue.”

Partenariat sans fumée supports the introduction of a health warning covering 80% of both sides of the pack, as well as the use of neutral packs. “We then wish to see a ban on flavourings and if possible on ingredients added to make the tobacco less bitter. Lastly, we seek to maintain the ban on snus (sucking tobacco).” “The revision of the directive on tobacco products is one of the most important pieces of legislation coming up on Parliament’s agenda. It is crucial that the Commission comes forward with proposals early next year as promised,” added Socialist MEP Glenis Willmott (UK).
According to the spokesman for Commissioner Dalli, the proposal is set to be presented “in early 2012, not before then”.

OPTIONS

In accordance with the proposals contained in the public consultation launched in September 2010, the Commission plans to: 1. improve rules on warnings and packs so that consumers have precise and effective information on the products they select; 2. regulate the use of additives in tobacco products, such as flavourings; 3. regulate access to tobacco more strictly to limit minors’ exposure to tobacco products; and 4. cover a number of products that have cropped up on the market, such as electronic cigarettes.

Copa-Cogeca, the organisation of European farmers and their cooperatives, was represented at the lunch-debate. It urged the European Commission to ensure fair earnings for growers and to enable them to procure most of their income from a stable and effective market. “The European tobacco sector represents a source of income and jobs for 100,000 growers and 400,000 people working on farms, as well as the whole industry upstream and downstream,” explained Francesca Bignami, the organisation’s policy adviser. “The tobacco products advisory group hopes to see the European Commission give consideration to the economic and social impact that could result from discriminatory and disproportionate ingredient bans on domestic tobacco production.” The International Tobacco Growers Association suggested that the Commission limit the ban to fruit flavourings, which attract young people. It could also accept a regulation reducing the toxicity and addictiveness of tobacco products.

AUSTRALIA VS PHILIP MORRIS

It is rumoured that the delay in presenting the proposal may be related to the lawsuit under way in Australia pitting the government against Philip Morris. On 27 June, the tobacco manufacturer took legal action against the policy to require neutral cigarette packs on the Australian market from 1 January 2012. According to the government’s plans being debated by Australia’s parliament, in the future, cigarette packs will have to be olive green and covered with warnings illustrating the consequences of tobacco use on human health. The only thing distinguishing one pack from another will be the brand name and the name of the specific product, which will be shown on all packs with the same lettering. Asked about this by Europolitics, Commissioner Dalli replied: “We are not waiting for the outcome, in any case. However, we are going to continue to progress on our own studies and evaluations and I am sure that the results will be very interesting”.
“Tobacco control measures aim to save lives, not to make farmers’ lives more complicated”

Background
Directive 2001/37/EC requires that all tobacco products sold in the EU at least show the minimum written warning “Smoking kills” or “Smoking is extremely harmful to your health and to the health of those around you”. The directive also bans misleading expressions, such as “light”, “mild” or “low-tar” and obliges manufacturers to inform member states of the ingredients they use. It also bans tobacco for oral use (except in Sweden) and sets maximum levels of tar, nicotine and carbon monoxide in cigarettes.
