Westminster Food & Nutrition Forum

Next steps for food regulation in the UK

Morning, Tuesday, 30th April 2019

Central London


This seminar will provide an opportunity to discuss the future of food regulation.

Delegates will assess the ongoing implementation of the FSA’s ‘Regulating Our Future’ (ROF) programme which aims to create a modernised regulatory system for food that is risk based, agile and resilient.

Discussion is also expected on the impact of changes on local authorities and food businesses, along with the potential impact of amendments to the Food Law Codes of Practice for England, Wales and Northern Ireland, aimed at supporting the implementation of ROF.

Further sessions will consider the future of food regulation following the UK’s exit from the European Union - assessing scenarios for collaboration and standards going forward, as well as the impact of any changes on trade with and beyond the EU.
