OFFICIAL CONTROL - Guidance on new EU Official Feed and Food Controls Regulation

The Food Standards Agency is issuing Q&As for enforcement authorities on the new EU Regulation on official feed and food controls (882/2004).

Regulation 882/2004 sets out general requirements for competent authorities, or enforcement authorities, that are responsible for checking that businesses comply with feed and food legislation.

The Q&A notes are designed to explain the provisions of the Regulation and to provide informal and non-statutory advice.

They are aimed primarily at the enforcement authorities in the UK, but may also provide useful information for the feed and food industries, and for consumers.
