Bosnia and Herzegovina: EC Finds BiH is in Early Stage Preparations in Agriculture and Fishery Areas

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On October 6, the European Commission (EC) released its opinion on Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH) application for European Union membership, noting that preparations in the areas of agriculture and fisheries are at an early stage, while the country has achieved some level of preparation in the area of food safety, veterinary and phytosanitary policy. The EC particularly noted that in the future BiH should improve its administrative capacity for participating in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and ensure that its legislation and agricultural information systems are aligned with the EU acquis. It should also improve its food inspection services and testing laboratories, adopt the OECD seed schemes, and an EU – like strategy on fisheries and aquaculture.
