Pre-Accession Study tour to the Irish Food Safety Authority

Dublin , 23 April 2013

This study tour was organised within the EFSA Pre-Accession Programme 2011-2014 for the Candidate and Potential Candidate countries financed by the European Commission under the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) Component.

The study tour aimed to provide the participants with an overall knowledge on the role of the Irish Food Safety Authorities in the area of risk assessment, risk communication and risk management. Visit to the Food and Veterinary Office (FVO) was organised as well. In particular, the study tour gave the participants knowledge on how the food safety authorities in the EU Member State work and by that gave them possibilities to improve their own work and also a good starting point for networking and sharing of information.
