Chief Scientist's annual report published

The Agency has today published a review of its science and research during the past year.

The Annual Report of the Chief Scientist focuses on the following areas of work, which aim to reduce levels of foodborne disease in the UK:

  • highlights of the Agency’s science during 2010/11
  • a review of efforts to reduce foodborne disease
  • developments in research on emerging risks in food safety
  • efforts to improve science governance to support the open, science- and evidence-based approach to our work

Andrew Wadge, Chief Scientist at the FSA, said: 'Science is integral to the work of the Agency. I hope this report provides an opportunity for scientists and others with an interest in our work to see the practical way in which the Agency uses science to assess and manage food safety.'
