Hygiene surveillance in establishments; carrying out of control inspections

Regular or unscheduled inspections shall be carried out to ensure that hygiene requirements are met in establishments handling food of animal origin, e.g. meat or poultry meat processing, milk, eggs and fish processing.

In industrially structured establishments, which must be approved in accordance with European legislation, comprehensive inspections, e.g. of occupational, operational and personnel hygiene, are carried out regularly by experts from the competent authority. Only if the food hygiene requirements are met can the approval be maintained.

Artisanal butchers and agricultural direct marketers are also subject to strict hygiene controls.
