Czech Republic - Agriculture

Short-term priorities

  • to take the measures needed to implement the common agricultural policy;
  • to continue with alignment and modernisation of the inspection facilities;
  • to modernise production sites for meat and milk products with regard to hygiene and public health;
  • to harmonise the identification system for bovine animals.

Assessment (November 2000)

Some progress has been made in implementing the common agricultural policy. Little has been done to improve veterinary and plant health inspection methods or modernise production sites for meat and milk products. Progress has been made on the cattle identification system.

Assessment (November 2001)

Progress continues as regards the implementation of the common agricultural policy, rural development and the livestock identification system. Progress is still needed in the veterinary field and on modernising production facilities for meat and milk products.

Assessment (October 2002)

Progress continues to be made. The Czech Republic must continue its alignment with the Community acquis in the veterinary sector.

Assessment (November 2003)

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

Medium-term priorities:

  • completion of alignment with the agricultural acquis (notably in the phytosanitary and veterinary fields, and particularly as regards external border controls);
  • developing the necessary capacities for implementing and applying the common agricultural policy, particularly the basic management mechanisms and administrative structures needed to control agricultural markets and implement structural and rural development measures;
  • adopting and implementing veterinary and plant health rules;
  • upgrading certain food processing centres and some testing and diagnostic facilities;
  • restructuring the agri-food sector;
  • land restitution process in particular and creation of an operational property market.

Assessment (October 1999)

These priorities have not been respected.

Assessment (November 2000)

Progress has been made on the establishment of management mechanisms for the common agricultural policy and on the animal identification system. The hazard analysis critical control points system was introduced.

Assessment (November 2001)

Despite satisfactory progress in implementing the common agricultural policy and as regards alignment on the acquis, progress is still needed on all aspects of the acquis.

Assessment (October 2002)

Progress continues to be made. The Czech Republic must continue its alignment with the Community acquis in the veterinary sector.

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.
