Developed by the Scottish Food Enforcement Liaison Committee - Enforcement Resources Group, this guidance consists of three parts:
Part 1 – the original report which aims to assess sampling activity and provide guidance to LAs on targeting resources.
Part 2 – a summary of the main factors to be considered by those responsible for the management of food sampling activity.
Part 3 - a toolkit of resources for managers and frontline environmental health staff to encourage the most efficient and effective use of resources.
The food surveillance programmes undertaken by FSS involve gathering data about the safety, compositional standards and authenticity of food & feed in Scotland.
