FSA News Item, 10 September 2002
The Food Standards Agency in Northern Ireland has published the first of its audit reports that examine the food law enforcement work carried out by councils.
The audits are part of the Food Standards Agency's arrangements to improve consumer protection and confidence in relation to food. The first audit report, of Lisburn Borough Council, revealed a good level of compliance with the standard, particularly in relation to investigative work, prosecutions and formal cautions.
The Agency in Northern Ireland aims to publish five audit reports in 2002, with a further five planned in 2003.
