AMI Briefing - FSA & EU Exit

The Society for Applied Microbiology responded to a consultation from the Food Standards Agency on their proposed approach to retained EU law for food and feed safety and hygiene. 

Although the expertise of the Society’s membership lies predominantly in scientific research and application, and not law, the potential impacts of EU Exit on food safety risks and UK science remain a particular concern for the Society. In July 2018 the Society held an expert roundtable discussion on the topic of EU Exit and food safety. This consultation response highlights a number of issues raised at that meeting.
