The Malta-EU Steering and Action Committee (MEUSAC) will be organising a consultation session on the ‘Proposal for a Regulation on official controls and other official activities performed to ensure the application of food and feed law, rules on animal health and welfare, plant health, plant reproductive material, plant protection products'.

The purpose of this consultation session is to seek stakeholders' views on the European Commission's proposed Regulation on official controls, which would replace the existing Regulation and adopt measures aimed at strengthening the enforcement of health and safety standards for the whole agri-food chain. All businesses and relevant stakeholders operating within the plant, animal and food sectors (the agri-food chain) and enforcement bodies carrying out official controls (competent authorities) are invited. Food safety is essential to ensure consumers' confidence and the sustainability of food production.

Comments on the likely impacts of the changes being proposed on consumers and industry, in particular food and feed businesses would be welcome during this session.
