The Health and Food Audits and Analysis is a Commission service (part of DG SANTE) which has for main goal to ensure food and feed safety, animal health and animal welfare by checking that EU legislation is properly enforced. A team of some 170 professionals from most EU Member States conduct audits or inspections to ensure the national authorities are fulfilling their legal obligations. This can be done during on-the-spot audits, or by desk based exercises or collation of Member States data. The audit focuses on the control system rather than individual premises and it culminates in a written report. On the basis of a multi-annual programme, each year DG SANTE publishes a work programme. This is produced in consultation with other Commission services and in consultation with Member States. It considers risk and trade factors, plus the status of legislation, to prioritise visits. The programme provides a balance between EU Member States and non-EU countries.
