The meetings will be open to stakeholders and the public and will provide attendees with an opportunity to hear more about the proposals and share their views.

FSA Board Members and policy officials will host the meetings.

On 25 May, at its open meeting, the FSA Board will discuss future charging policy for meat official controls. The comments made at the public meetings will be included in the evidence that the Board will consider as part of its decision-making process, as it will enable Board Members to better understand the views of stakeholders and the public.

The FSA’s consultation on this subject attracted many responses. A summary of these will be published on the Agency’s website on 13 May along with all the papers for the May Board meeting.

The dates and locations of the public meetings are as follows:

  • Durham 16 May
  • Bath 16 May
  • Carlisle 17 May
  • Colchester 17 May

The Food Standards Agency in Scotland, in Wales and in Northern Ireland have a different system through which to hear the views of stakeholders. Discussions of this issue there will be held in Food Advisory Committee open meetings, which will take place during the same week as the public meetings in England.
