Veterinary inspections


The Authority, as guardian of the EEA Agreement, is under an obligation to ensure that the EFTA Countries apply EEA legislation correctly. Within the field of food and feed safety, animal health and welfare that is partly done through on-the-spot inspections.

The Authority co-operates with the Food and Veterinary Office (FVO) of the European Commission, which carries out similar inspections in the EU Member States. To ensure a harmonised approach, inspectors from the Authority participate regularly as observers in inspections carried out by the Commission, and vice versa.

Each year the Authority issues an inspection plan which, in addition to being published on this site, is sent to Iceland and Norway and the FVO:
