Panel, new pandemic regulations

At its 111th meeting, the Council decided to adopt an important decision by written procedure. Article 10(6) of the International Agreement on Olive Oil and Table Olives 2015 states that “The Council of Members may take decisions by an exchange of correspondence between the Chair and the members without holding a session, provided that no member, excluding those members in arrears, objects to this procedure”.

The decision concerns the guidelines for managing an olive oil tasting panel in the event of a pandemic. In particular, the EU notified the Executive Secretariat of its support for this draft decision and requested it be reviewed at a later date.

The measure, attached hereto, was approved on 17 July 2020.

DECISION No. DEC-III.1/112-VI /2020 ADOPTING GUIDELINES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF VIRGIN OLIVE OIL TASTING PANELS IN CASE OF PANDEMIC.
