Celebration: 30 years Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed


DG Sanco is currently celebrating the 30th year of the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF).


The celebrations started with a kick-off meeting with RASFF members, representatives of third countries and WHO, during which the future of RASFF and other alert systems around the world was discussed and how cooperation between these systems could be enhanced. This meeting was followed by a high-level conference on 16 July 2009. More than 90 countries participated to learn what role RASFF has played in food safety in Europe in the past and which developments are foreseen for the future. For more information: Weblink
