The FSAI is responsible for the enforcement of all food legislation in Ireland. The FSAI carries out this enforcement function through "service contracts" with official agencies. Section 48 of the FSAI Act, 1998 gives the legislative basis for this. These contracts outline an agreed level and standard of food safety activity that the agencies perform as agents of the FSAI.
