FSA in England and Northern Ireland launch consultation on the Food Law Code of Practice, Practice Guidance and Competency Framework


Dec 02, 2020

We’ve launched a formal four-week consultation on proposals to amend the Food Law Code of Practice (the Code) and Food Law Practice Guidance (the Practice Guidance), and implement the FSA knowledge and skills for the effective delivery of official food and feed controls and other activities (Competency Framework). This formal consultation follows a series of stakeholder engagement events over the last four weeks.

The Codes in England, Northern Ireland and Wales sets out instructions and criteria to which local authorities and port health authorities, in England and Wales, and District Councils in Northern Ireland must have regard to when discharging their duties in relation to the delivery of official food control activities.
