Survey on Verification of Compliance with Commission Regulation (EC) No 2073 of 2005

Thursday, 18 December 2014

The Regulation aims to enhance food safety and facilitate fair trade by harmonising microbiological criteria that can be used to assess the acceptability of food.

The aim of this survey was to verify that food business operators registered with the Health Service Executive (HSE) comply with the microbiological criteria set in Commission Regulation (EC) No 2073/2005, as amended.

Food samples were collected from food establishments that were registered with the HSE and that manufactured, processed or prepared food for which there was a relevant criterion set in the Regulation.
