The Milk Hygiene Section and Dairy Controls and Certification Division approve and supervise food business operators involved in the production of milk and milk-based products.
Why controls are needed
Controls verify that legal standards of quality and safety for human consumption are maintained from production at farm level, through to manufacturing and storage.
Staff from the Dairy Controls and Certification Division carry out monitoring and enforcement, including inspections, audits and product sampling, to verify compliance with legislation. The control programme certifies dairy products for export to third-country markets.
