FSA supports National Audit Office’s report
Food safety remains our priority after EU exit says Chief Executive 

In the middle of May the National Audit Office (NAO) published its report on food safety in Britain after the EU exit and the Food Standards Agency’s (FSA) Chief Executive, Emily Miles, has responded by offering the Agency’s full support. 

The report by the NAO examined in detail the effects on food safety in this country following the UK’s departure from the EU. 

It is a response that is fully supported by Aerona Customs Clearing Agency Ltd, who is deeply involved in the import and export of foodstuffs to and from the UK following the country’s departure from the EU. 

In response to the recent NAO report, FSA Chief Executive, Emily Miles said: 

“We note the findings in this report, which recognises the significant growth of the FSA’s responsibilities since the UK left the EU. We have ensured, at all stages, that food remains safe and is what it says it is, and this continues to be our top priority.” 

As a major service provider to the foodstuffs and food products sector and with a huge involvement involving the movement of products into and out of the UK, Aerona is keenly interested in all changes to relevant legislation and it takes note of service improvements with extreme seriousness. 

The FSA have taken on a number of new functions and the body is now wholly responsible for the approval of new food products and ingredients that come into or are exported out of the UK.  

The organisation also recognises that it now has an enhanced role concerning import controls for food and food products entering the country and it has also expanded its work to tackle the growing menace of food fraud. 

Whilst recognising that it no longer has full access to EU data alerts, the FSA has strengthened its links to more that 180 countries with an overwhelming emphasis on food safety notifications. 

The FSA continues to work extremely closely with partner organisations such as Aerona, who remain on the ‘front line’ when it comes to import and export monitoring and food safety.
