The European Union (EU) and the Vietnam’s Food Hygiene and Safety Department (FHSD) coorganised a workshop on the rapid alert system for food and feed (RASFF) on November 3 in Hanoi.

The EU-ASEAN workshop aimed to maintain the sustainable national and regional RASFFs in the ASEAN region and deepen cooperation with the EU’s RASFF.

FHSD’s deputy director Nguyen Hung Long said Vietnam and other nations in the region are setting up a rapid alert system for food and feed which provides control authorities with effective tools for information exchange on food safety measures.
