The UK FSA is undertaking a policy review of food law enforcement by local authorities (LAs). The aim of the review is to provide LAs with ‘flexible interventions for improving business compliance’, thereby enabling LAs to focus resources more effectively. The review, Changes to Local Authority Enforcement (CLAE), will implement ideas raised in the 2004 Hampton Review, which considered how to reduce administrative burdens on business without compromising the UK’s regulatory outcomes. It will also implement the top five priorities for enforcement in the Agency, as set out in a 2005 paper. The review is due to be completed by December 2007.
