Following a report by Food Standards Agency Chief Executive, Tim Smith, the FSA Board announced the Agency’s intention to review the food safety official controls delivery within the UK.

Although the strategic aims and objectives of the review are still unclear, a coalition of collaborating professional organisations within Scotland has been formed to gather evidence for submission to the review and to make the evidential suite available to the wider profession in Scotland to assist in any submission those individuals or bodies wished to make.

SFELC Chairman George Fairgrieve, seen here receiving the award of a REHIS Fellowship from Colin Wallace in 2009, is the Chairman of the group currently gathering evidence to submit to the FSA.

The joint statement is attached.
