FSA Consultation Letter, 28 January 2008
ENFORCEMENT - Review of the Food Standards Agency's Scheme for Audit of Local Authorities
A copy of the consultation letter is available on this site. See: L.A. Audit Consultation
The proposed revisions to the Agency's arrangements for audit of local authorities' feed and food law enforcement activities. Responses are requested by 21 April 2008.
The key changes are for audits:
- to take more account of, and to build upon, local authorities' own audit activity of their feed and food law enforcement services, where these local audit arrangements can be verified as sufficiently robust to meet European Union (EU) audit criteria
- to be more risk-based in their approach and in the selection of local authorities'
- to have a greater focus on local authorities' feed and food law enforcement service outcomes
The proposals take into account the wider government agenda on the performance management framework for the public sector, and EU requirements on Competent Authorities relating to the audit of Official Controls of feed and food law.
