Sofia. The European Parliament did its job on double standards, now the Bulgarian government has to transpose the directive as quickly as possible into national law, MEP Momchil Nekov, Socialists and Democrats Group, told Focus Radio, and specified that the ball was now in the hands of the government to protect Bulgarians. He recalled that six years ago the battle against double standards seemed unthinkable, whereas now the European directive will come into effect within just a few weeks. Bulgaria needs a body to monitor if food products offered on the local market are of a lower quality than the same products in Western Europe, the MEP said. He thinks the Commission for Consumer Protection could be tasked with the monitoring, while the Joint Research Centre in Belgium or national laboratories will do the analysis. In his words, the sooner the directive is transposed in each member state, the sooner the companies will not dare to break this law, given the hefty fines. Momchil Nekov specified that the European regulation was addressing both goods and services and could be consolidated upon a review in two years. According to him, its scope will be extended to car manufacturing and other services with differences between the markets of Western and Eastern Europe.
