Risk-based meat inspection in a Nordic context
Responsible organisation
2007 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The Regulation of official control on products of animal origin gives the opportunity for amending or supplementing existing procedures for meat inspection, whilst taking into account scientific and technical progress. It means tailoring the meat inspection to the actual risks and with respect to the holding, region or country of origin, using the principles of risk analysis and taking into account resources. It is important to make use of those possibilities in the Regulation to obtain a meat inspection system in the Nordic countries, which is more risk-based, and to optimise the use of resources to maximise the effectiveness of meat inspection. These aspects, the organisation of meat inspection in the Nordic countries and results from national projects are among the topics presented in this report. This report is an outcome of the project with the main objective to investigate and test solutions to achieve an efficient and modern meat inspection in the Nordic countries based on a future risk-based EU legislation. The project was realised within the vision of risk-based meat inspection based on a sustainable Nordic primary production with healthy animals providing safe meat to the consumers.
