EU Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed – RASSF
The European Union (EU) has one of the highest food safety standards in the world – largely due to EU legislation, which ensures that food is safe for consumers. Created in 1979, RASFF enables information to be shared efficiently between its members: EU national food safety authorities, EU Commission, EFSA, ESA, Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Switzerland. It provides a round-the-clock service to ensure that urgent notifications are sent, received and responded to collectively and efficiently.
