Oficiul Comunitar pentru Soiuri de Plante

A system for the protection of plant variety rights has been established by Community legislation. The system allows intellectual property rights, valid throughout the Community, to be granted for plant varieties. The Community Plant Variety Office (CPVO) implements and applies this scheme. In 2009 the Centre submitted a corpus of documents to the CPVO in order to extract the terminology, the whole project scheduled for completion in 2010.

The European Maritime Safety Agency contributes to the enhancement of the overall maritime safety system in the Community.

Autoritatea Europeană pentru Siguranța Alimentară

EFSA was set up in January 2002 as part of a comprehensive programme to improve EU food safety, ensure a high level of consumer protection and restore and maintain confidence in the EU food supply. The Centre and EFSA’s internal experts/proofreaders carried out a joint project ‘EFSA Terminology Watch’, the aim of which was to expand the existing glossaries of EFSA key terms, have them validated by the Agency and import them into IATE. EFSA independently continues to collect new terms for insertion into IATE through daily proofreading and processing of translations from the Centre.

The EMCDDA was set up to provide the EU and its Member States with a factual overview of European drug problems and a solid evidence base to support the drugs debate. In 2009 the EMCDDA started work on the compilation of a major glossary, essentially with the aim of achieving consistency and an agreed common understanding of English terms, both in-house and within the National Focal Points.
