This 90-minute training webinar has been developed to give officers an opportunity to build upon the learning from the FSA’s Imported Food Legislation and Enforcement training, with a special focus on the value of capturing intelligence in this area.
Verification of imported food inland is a responsibility of all LAs. This course will focus on a variety of foodstuffs and scenarios, how to verify and deal with them, when found. The gathering, recording and dissemination of intelligence is vital in this context and this training will focus on how and when this should happen.
