A Few Considerations on Evolution Lines in Food Safety under Consideration of the Hygiene Regulations Package

Ana-Laura NEACSU, Maria TOFANĂ


Food quality and food safety rely on the efforts of all stakeholders involved in the complex chain including agricultural production, processing and transport as well as consume. According to the European Union and the World Health Organization food safety is a common responsibility of all citizens and authorities, beginning from the origins until the moment food reaches consumers tables. This integrated “farm to fork” approach is now a general principle for EU food safety policy.
In order to maintain food quality and safety throughout the above-mentioned chain, there is need for both special procedures ensuring the integrity of food, and monitoring procedures ensuring the finalization of the operations in best conditions.
In the present work, we will underline a few considerations regarding the regulation milestones in Food Safety, having in consideration the Commissions Report on the experience gained from the application of the hygiene Regulations (EC) No 852/2004, (EC) No 853/2004 and (EC) No 854/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004.
