ENFORCEMENT - Local authority enforcement activity data published

The Food Standards Agency has published a summary of the 2006/07 food law enforcement monitoring data sent to the Agency by local authorities.

Member States of the European Union (EU) are required under article 14 of the Official Control of Foodstuffs Directive 89/397 (OCD) to send to the European Commission annual returns on official food enforcement activities. The Commission uses this information to ensure that foodstuffs are subjected to appropriate food controls across the EU.

The Agency is responsible for collecting returns from all UK local authorities and arranging for the summary data to be submitted to the Commission.

An information paper reporting on the 2006/07 data will be presented to the FSA Board tomorrow, Wednesday 12 March.

The Board paper can be found at the following link: UK Inspection Data 2006/07
