A copy of the guidance is available on this site. See: Effective imported food control Making every inspection count
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has today published guidance on effective imported food control for local authority food services. 'Effective imported food control' draws on experience gained from the Agency's programme of auditing local authority imported food services
FSA audits of local authorities’ food law enforcement arrangements have identified core service areas critical to maintaining effective service provision and improving imported food controls. This advice highlights some simple and practical issues which have featured in relevant published audit reports as critical areas of good practice or areas for improvement.
The guidance seeks to provide local authority Service managers with some key information on prompts that may assist in managing and monitoring inland imported food controls and at smaller seaports and airports.
