Food and Veterinary Office Programme of Audits 2013
This document sets out the audit programme for 2013 of DG Health and Consumers' Food and Veterinary Office (FVO). It also contains a short report on the execution of its audit programme 2011. In its function as "eyes and ears" of the Commission, the FVO verifies on the spot that EU requirements in the areas of food safety and quality, animal health and welfare, plant health and public health are properly implemented and enforced by Member States and also by third countries exporting to the EU. By contributing to the improvement of national control systems, the effective enforcement of requirements in the EU and third countries is enhanced.
