And this, no matter how strange it sounds, the European market can be deadly for domestic producers. Here is an example: a few days ago in Latvia spread the message about the coming closing of the manufacturer of meat smoked Rubeņi. The reason is simple: in September of this year will come into force new EU requirements for smoked products, and Rubeņi use of smoked products and the wood in the finished products are too big level бензпирена.
Reader you may remember the story of the многострадальными Latvian sprats in which insidious benzpyrene discovered the Rosselkhoznadzor. But not only that office, going through with the glorious Onishchenko, critically looks at this traditional products: colleagues from Estonia and Hungary decided to go ahead европаровоза and in advance limit the sale of sprat. New restrictions on бензпирену are contrary to earlier decisions of 2010, when the European Commission agreed to keep in шпротах acceptable level of carcinogenic бензпирена - as we can see, for a short while.
Now new European regulations threaten already all smoked foods, so popular in Northern Europe. Instead, you are offered, of course, use the "liquid smoke", but as an experienced user with a half century of experience say that this is not the same... and consistency is not the same, and the scent of some kind of "chemistry".
do Not drink, do not smoke, do not eat bread rolls
It not the first and not the last Directive of the European Commission, which disturb the European average people. Especially the EU tries to прищучить smokers. 10 October 2013 European Parliament deputies have prepared a decision requiring that packs were no less than 20 cigarettes, warning labels on them held 65% of the surface area will be prohibited flavored cigarettes and testing was introduced for electronic cigarettes.
Here and local authorities do not lag behind: here Finnish bureaucrats are going to ban Smoking on the balcony of your own apartment - the truth, in Finland the apartment is not quite is absolutely your property, and in any case one should take into account the rules of your partnership. But there is just a matter not about rules жилтоварищества, and on the state regulation. The new limit will enter into force in April 2014, and then it will be clear how it will be implemented in practice.
In Denmark bureaucrats in the process of fight against Smoking is going to be denied liquorice candy, which, if properly fantasy easily be mistaken for a cigarette. Children begin to play with candy-cigarettes, well and all is involved in addiction.
The Denmark has been a pioneer in the introduction of a tax on fatty products, which, unfortunately, have not justified hopes of: rehabilitation of the people did not happen, and that's agriculture and trade as the закручинились. Now Swedish experts have found that low fat food - it was a nonsense, we must have pure fats, but restrict carbohydrates. I think the Danes do not become upset -- they are enthusiasts who want to push through the European structures bill on the special contribution for dessert.
the Reason the appearance of such bills is very simple: the EU must be as healthy people, healthy and inexpensive in terms of social and medical services. Meanwhile, the social structure suggests the contrary: the level of health of Europeans far from ideal, Europe is aging, retirement age will increase, but it is still necessary to survive.
Of course, the main problem lies in drunkenness. For example, in Finland each year, about four thousand Finns die from diseases associated with the excessive consumption of alcohol. Direct and indirect budget expenditures on treatment of drunks are hundreds of millions of euros and have a tendency to grow. It is quite logical that are preparing new legislation, further complicating access to alcohol for the Finns. We cannot purchase alcohol at the weekend, after 18 hours on weekdays, and from supermarkets and grocery stores will be deleted beer and cider fortress more than 3.5%. You cannot drink at stadiums and in cemeteries.
Single евроунитазный standard
Restrictions the use of harmful food products of the same series. The logic of lawmakers is simple: if you are receiving for your money, you can eat anything. Buy a mansion, get a smoker, distillery, smoke, drink, and get better health for its own account - you have the right. But if you're receiving money society, it will be good, not ухудшай their health with their hands, the company is not required to pay for your vices and weaknesses. That is money and, in this society is embodied freedom. Or, if you like-it exists for those who have money.
But in addition to restrictions on unhealthy products, the EU restrictions that seem at first sight absolutely funny. In the teeth навязли restrictions on the shape and curvature of cucumbers. In particular, it was stipulated that the deviation of the longitudinal axis shall not exceed 10 mm for every 10 cm of length of a fetus. Curve cucumber subject to processing, resulting on the shelves of the European Union there appeared a lot of cheap pickled cucumber thin slices.
funny law was lobbied by trading companies, which found that in standard mailbox breaks a lot more "correct" cucumbers, than all sorts of curved weaklings. At the end of July 2009 this odious cucumber abolish the law, but this is only the beginning of the struggle with maniacal desire еврочиновничества standardize everything. Sometimes the consequences of their decisions literally kill business.
So, in 2011, the EU has put forward new rules on the content of laying hens. The proposed changes were simply very heavy for entrepreneurs. European authorities have warned the 11 countries on the possible prosecution, if the requirements for the new content of chickens will be satisfied. In the end, one of the Latvian companies, which failed to resettle chickens, simply destroyed all poultry stock. And the marvelous thing: it is believed that Latvia Directive complied, laying hens are more in cramped cages are not sitting, and, consequently, judicial sanctions it passed. How these directives help entrepreneurs rhetorical question.
Even Commission President Barroso admitted that the EU should remove unnecessary burden on business, so it is easy to create jobs and stimulate economic growth. He proudly reported that since 2005, the European Commission abolished 5590 laws, and thus in the period between 2007 and 2012 the administrative burden on businesses reduced by 26% in monetary terms.
Barroso says that until the end of the current year against rampant lawmaking rebound will stop the process of adoption of standards on the heels of the hairdressers for the solution of the problem of back pain among the representatives of this profession. With Barroso is difficult to accept, when he says that useless laws weaken the necessary laws, but there is контрвопрос: maybe you should not give birth to these endless laws and regulations to their then cancel?
The not less immediately reported that in the bowels of the European Commission is maturing a fundamentally new bill which will force the parliamentarians of all countries of biting the nails from envy. Standardise drains all the toilets of a United Europe. Namely, their volumes. Small plum - 3 liters, large - up to 6. The British, however, wanted minimal in 4 liters, but their claims rejected as polluting.
Officials the disingenuous, claiming that the implementation of the new regulation in production of toilets will be voluntary. During the production of voluntary, and the construction of the use of new sanitary ware will be required. Perhaps it is an important, but not what to him were of European officials for three years. And on the approach new initiatives are talking about the need to reduce sugar candy and other products for children.
One of the reasons irrepressible growth of bureaucratic law - making grandiose Brussels lobbying. This does not in itself), but in theory it should be limited by persuasion and belief in the benefits of different solutions. However, the practice is that some laws are made in the interests of corporations, and the officials of the EU are quite willing to make a deal for appropriate consideration.
For example, the former Minister of internal Affairs of Austria and MEP Ernst Strasser was sentenced to four years in prison - exactly one year ago, in January 2013, his appeal was dismissed. Strasser was caught on a bribe of 100 thousand euros, which he asked for a small correction in the European legislation on acceptance of electronic scrap with two masters, in fact caught journalists of the British Sunday Times. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case. And we can only guess who was disturbed Latvian sausage that Brussels decided to ban it.
