The FSAI is committed to creating an environment of openness and transparency. This public consultation process allows for those who may be affected by proposed changes to food safety legislation or who have an interest in the legislation, to contribute their views.

The majority of food safety legislation in Ireland originates from the European Union. All proposals from the EU that are relevant to food safety will be available here and all interested parties can submit their views on the possible impact of the proposals.

We will also, on occasion, invite views on some other FSAI documents such as draft Guidance Notes or Codes of Practice.
