Food monitoring

Every consumer expects flawless and safe food. First of all, it is everyone who is entrepreneurs in the food chain who is responsible for this.
Food surveillance authorities shall verify, through risk-based, systematic checks and sampling, whether food business operators have implemented and comply with the requirements of food law and, where appropriate, enforce them.
If deficiencies are found, it is the responsibility of the official food monitoring system to ensure that they are rectified immediately and that infringements of existing legislation are punished.
Similarly, monitoring of cosmetic products, tobacco products and consumer goods is organised.
Further information can also be found on the website of the Lower Saxony State Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (LAVES).
