Consumer Voice Newsletter goes electronic
"Consumer Voice", the new monthly electronic newsletter from the European Commission's Directorate General for Health and Consumer Protection, is now available on the Europa web site. It brings together two previous paper publications "Prevention" and "Consumer Voice" into one publication and covers the full range of the responsibilities of the Directorate General : food safety, public health and consumer protection.
"I am personally committed to providing information on all of our activities in the most transparent manner possible, " Health and Consumer Protection Commissioner David Byrne said. "This new newsletter is part of the European Commission's drive towards making the range of initiatives undertaken on behalf of our citizens more readily and rapidly accessible."
The idea is to touch on and give background to the legislative, administrative, scientific and political decision making of the Health and Consumer Protection Directorate General. Links throughout direct the reader back to the source document to help access more in-depth information on the topics described.
Consumer Voice is now available at the following address: http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/health_consumer/newsletter/ in English, French and German. If you would like to receive the newsletter in text regularly by e-mail in English, French or German, please notify: email@example.com.
