The FSAI comes under the ægis of the Minister for Health.
It currently has an nine-member Board, which is advised by the Scientific Committee and the Food Safety Consultative Council. The Chief Executive is the direct link to the FSAI Board.
The FSAI aims to fulfil its statutory obligation to foster the highest standards of food safety and hygiene in the food industry in Ireland. One of the ways it does this is through working closely with our stakeholders in the food industry fora in order to raise compliance.
Within the FSAI, there is the CEO's Office which includes Communications, Public Health Nutrition Policy and the Albania Project, and five functional areas:
- Corporate Affairs,
- Enforcement Policy,
- Audit, Incidents and Investigations,
- Regulatory Affairs and Compliance Building,
- Food Science and Standards.
