european food safety policy


Assurance of a high level of food safety within the EU through coherent farm-to-table measures and adequate monitoring, while ensuring an effective internal market. The implementation of this approach involves various actions, namely:
	 assure effective control systems and evaluate compliance with EU standards in the food safety and quality, within the EU and in third countries in relation to their exports to the EU; 
	 manage international relations with third countries and international organisations concerning food safety; 
	 manage relations with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and ensure science-based risk management.
