European food microbiology legislation scheme


The European food microbiology legislation scheme is designed for laboratories that examine foods for compliance with Regulation (EC) 2073/2005 and subsequent amendments.  It has recently been updated.

The European food microbiology legislation scheme assesses the participants’ ability to:

Test and interpret laboratory results in accordance with EU food safety
Process hygiene criteria

The samples are simulated foods to be tested for compliance with either the food safety or the process hygiene criteria.

A list of the updates can be found at the Public Health England site here.
