Revised UK Multi-Annual National Control Plan (MANCP) published
The UK Multi-Annual National Control Plan (MANCP) has been revised and extended to March 2023.
The Food Standards Agency yesterday published an updated version of the UK Multi-Annual National Control Plan (MANCP).
The MANCP is produced by the FSA, with contributions provided by:
- Defra and its agencies
- Department of Health and Social Care
- Health and Safety Executive’s Chemicals Regulation Directorate
- Scottish Government Agriculture, Food and Rural Communities
- Food Standards Scotland
- Welsh Government Natural Resources

It is a European Commission requirement that all member states have a national control plan. The purpose of the plan is to ensure that effective control systems are in place for monitoring and enforcing feed and food law, animal health and animal welfare rules, and plant health law.
The plan provides the basis of assessments of the performance of the UK's national control systems by the European Commission's inspection services. Progress on implementation of the MANCP is continually monitored and annual reports are prepared and submitted to the European Commission.
Regulation 882/2004 requires that the plan be kept under review and revised regularly. The MANCP has therefore been revised and extended to March 2023. There will be a further in-year review during 2019 to take account of the new Official Controls Regulation (EU) 2017/625, which will replace Regulation (EC) 882/2004 on 14 December 2019.

The updated MANCP and associated documents can be found on the FSA website.
