Work programmes

Our annual work programme identifies the work priorities in context of identified risks, legal obligations and Commission priorities.

About work programmes

DG Health and Food Safety develops and publishes an annual work programme. Work priorities are identified following a careful process, based on legal obligations, risk posted in the sectors concerned and the Commission´s political priorities and in particular the Farm to Fork Strategy. As there may be changes to the programme due to availability of resources, changes in risk or emerging issues, an update of the programme is usually presented in June.
