FSA commissions new meat control study

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is due to commission a new study into official meat controls and is seeking a new contractor to carry out the research.

The FSA is looking to gather information that can improve meat controls and protect public health, animal health and animal welfare.

It would aim to tackle inspection of cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry and possibly production systems. And it would also seek to discover “what constitutes key food chain information (FCI) data and collection and communication of inspection results (CCIR) data that would support a more risk-based and effective meat inspection system”.

Contractor applications must be submitted by 13 November.
