Self-checking systems of food chain operators - Supervision by the Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (Afsca-FAVV)

general assembly on February 1, 2017

The Belgian Court of Audit has examined in its report to the Federal Parliament whether the Afsca supervises the food chain operators efficiently while they implement the compulsory self-checking systems. The Court has recommended a series of measures in order to enhance the supervision of the food chain operators by way of verifications of their self-checking systems and to improve the inspections intrinsically. Furthermore, the Court of Audit has advised to complete the information registered during the self-checking operations and improve the supervision of the certification bodies in charge of these systems validation.
