Endocrine disruptors: motion of censure on the Commission lapsed

Met dank overgenomen van Europees Parlement (EP) i, gepubliceerd op donderdag 19 mei 2016, 18:17.

16 MEPs from the GUE/NGL group withdrew their signature from a motion of censure on the Commission which was announced in plenary on Thursday 12 May.

The drafted by Piernicola Pedicini i (EFDD, IT) said that the Commission has failed to comply with its legal obligation to publish scientific criteria for defining endocrine disruptors.

It was initially signed by a sufficient number of EFD, GUE, ENF and NI members. After the withdrawal, it doesn't meet the required number of signatures (one-tenth of MEPs) anymore and lapsed. The procedure is closed.
