Revised National Control Plan published
The Agency and the four agriculture/rural affairs departments in the UK have
recently reviewed the UK's National Control Plan for the period January 2007
to March 2011, and a revised version has been published.
The purpose of the plan, which is a requirement of EU Regulation 882/2004 on
official controls, is to ensure that effective control systems are in place
for monitoring and enforcing feed and food law, animal health and animal welfare
rules, and plant health law.
Regulation 882/2004 requires that plans be kept under review and revised regularly.
The third review of the UK plan has recently been completed. No substantive
amendments have been made as a result, but the plan has been updated to reflect
organisational and legislative changes.
