Published 12-03-2010
The EFTA Standing Committee and EEA Joint Committee met on 11 and 12 March 2010 respectively.

In the Standing Committee, the EEA EFTA States discussed the entry into force of the Services Directive and the Food Law Package.

The Joint Committee adopted 19 decisions incorporating 51 legal acts and discussed the EEA Joint Committee Annual Report for 2009, which they decided to adopt by written procedure the following week. The Committee also brought up the entry into force of the Food Law Package. The Icelandic delegate informed the Committee that the Food Law Package had started to apply provisionally on 1 March 2010 and that constitutional requirements would be lifted before the end of March. This means that the Food Law Package will enter into force on 1 May 2010.
