jfThe Animal Welfare Intergroup Members Jacqueline Foster (ECR), Janusz Wojciechowski (ECR), Anja Hazekamp (GUE/NGL), Marlene Mizzi (S&D), Jörg Leichtfried (S&D), Pavel Poc (S&D), Marit Paulsen (ALDE), Catherine Bearder (ALDE), Ivo Vajgl (ALDE), Keith Taylor (Verts/ALE), Franc Bogovič (PPE) have recently published the written declaration 22/2015 on the creation of a one-stop shop for animal welfare at the European Commission .

The “one-stop shop” would aim at streamlining animal welfare concerns under the existing directorates-general structure and to act as a single and central point of information and expertise.

The Commission should also task the one-stop shop with responding quickly to information received from the public and interested parties in order to ensure that cases of non-compliance with EU requirements are directed to, and dealt with by, the appropriate Commission officials within seven days.

The Animal Welfare Intergroup encourages all MEPs to support this initiative and to sign the written declaration at the earliest convenience. The lapse date is set for 27 August 2015
