Key points:

The Committee welcomes the Commission's initiative and considers that:

  • it would be appropriate to define the nature of, and a minimum threshold for, sanctions for which provision has to be made in the laws of the Member States;
  • the Commission should take account of the remarks made by the EESC in a previous opinion regarding the need to improve coordination and step up market surveillance activities;
  • as regards legal protection in the EU market, there should be a move towards a new system for determining the origin and traceability of products, so as to improve information for consumers.
