Food Sampling Procedure Updates

March 11, 2013

The set of 5 food sampling procedures have been updated. The main addition is a reference to the new national database called the UK Food Surveillance System (UKFSS). The database will enable searches of anonymised datasets for trends and to inform future sampling programmes. Each Local Authority will have its own unique password protected access to UKFSS and the database has an e-learning tool and validation process. For assistance with the database, the Food Standards Agency has a help desk IT.servicedesk@foodstandards.gsi.gov.uk
