National Control Plan for the United Kingdom
The National Control Plan for the United Kingdom details the roles and responsibilities of the different authorities and organisations involved in the monitoring compliance with, and enforcement of, feed and food law, animal health and welfare rules and plant health requirements.
It also provides an overview of how these authorities and other bodies work together to safeguard public, animal and plant health, to protect consumers and to promote animal welfare.
It is a European requirement that all member states have a national control plan. The plan provides the basis of assessments of the performance of the UK's national control systems by the European Commission's inspection services.
Progress on implementation of the National Control Plan is monitored on an ongoing basis and annual reports are prepared and submitted to the European Commission. The annual reports can be found at the links below.
