Regulation (EU) 2022/2379 - adopted by the co-legislators on 23 November 2022 - introducing a framework concerning statistics on agricultural input and output (SAIO). This is a text with EEA relevance.
Eurostat has compiled agricultural statistics for the European Union (EU) for decades. Such data collection was assessed in 2016 and were found to be in need of an update to take account of the changes in agriculture, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and other related policies of the European Union (EU). A major programme aimed at modernising EU agricultural statistics was launched - the Strategy for Agricultural Statistics for 2020 and beyond, as part of the REFIT programme.
This Regulation establishes an integrated framework for aggregated European statistics relating to the input and output of agricultural activities, as well as the intermediate use of such output within agriculture and its collection and processing. It introduces amendments to Commission Regulation (EC) No 617/2008. It also repeals Regulation (EC) No 1165/2008, Regulation (EC) No 543/2009, Regulation (EC) No 1185/2009 and Council Directive 96/16/EC.
The draft law was adopted by the European Commission on 2 February 2021 as part of the effort to modernise the European Agricultural Statistics System (EASS). The plenary of the European Parliament endorsed a negotiating position in October. The Special Committee on Agriculture (SCA) of the Council of the European Union adopted a negotiating mandate on 10 December. An informal agreement between the co-legislators on a compromise text for this file was reached on 2 June 2022. This was formally endorsed by Parliament on 4 October and by the Council on 8 November. The Act was signed by the co-legislators on 23 November 2022 and published in the Official Journal on 7 December 2022.
