Archives

Short-term priorities

Agriculture

  • Continuation of legislation alignment in the veterinary and plant health sectors and the establishment of border checkpoints.

Assessment (November 2000)

Progress has been made in the veterinary area. A new law has been adopted which alters the law on veterinary practice. There has been no further improvement of border checkpoints.

Assessment (November 2001)

Efforts have continued as regards veterinary and plant health matters and controls at the future external borders.

Assessment (October 2002)

Slovenia has continued to adapt. Efforts must be made to set up a system of veterinary and plant health controls.

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Medium-term priorities

Agriculture

  • Establishment of a reliable system for registering land ownership;
  • Strengthening structural and rural development policy, in particular by bringing it into line with the Community acquis (including in the veterinary and phytosanitary sector, and especially as regards inspections at external borders);
  • Improving the capability to implement the common agricultural policy (CAP), with particular emphasis on the basic management mechanisms and the administrative structures necessary for monitoring agricultural markets and implementing structural and rural development measures;
  • Adoption and implementation of Community rules in the veterinary and phytosanitary sector;
  • Upgrading of certain food processing centres and certain testing and diagnostic facilities;
  • Restructuring of the agri-food sector.

Assessment (October 1999)

The plan for the reform of agricultural and rural development policy was adopted in October 1998. It should lead to progress in market liberalisation and the establishment of CAP mechanisms.

Assessment (November 2000)

The new agriculture law constitutes the legal basis for continued alignment with the common agricultural policy. The introduction of management mechanisms and administrative structures for the common agricultural policy has been set in motion by the creation of the agricultural market and rural development agency, as well as by the adoption of the 2000-06 rural development plan. An independent service responsible for identifying animals and registering cattle has been established. The legal framework for the system of hazard analysis and critical control points has been adopted.

Assessment (November 2001)

Efforts have continued as regards reinforcing the management mechanisms and administrative structures of the common agricultural policy, veterinary and plant health matters, and inspection at the future external borders. There have also been efforts to modernise agro-industry and restructure the food processing sector.

Assessment (October 2002)

Slovenia has continued to adapt. It must strengthen its administrative capacity and complete the introduction of management mechanisms for the common agricultural policy.

Fisheries

  • Reinforcement of the capacity to implement and apply the common fisheries policy, particularly by the establishment of institutional resources and adequate facilities to carry out inspections and controls.

Assessment (November 2000)

There has been an increase in personnel responsible for fisheries within the ministry. Preparatory measures for the creation of an interministerial control centre have been adopted.

Assessment (November 2001)

Decisions have been taken regarding the location of various departments of the interministerial control centre.

Assessment (October 2002)

Despite the efforts made, alignment with the acquis must be completed and implementation capacity improved.

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Following the signing of the Accession Treaty on 16 April 2003, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia acceded to the European Union on 1 May 2004.
