Mission & Responsibilities
Operating since 1979, RASFF is one of the great success stories of the EU’s integrated approach to food safety, showing the power of communication and collaboration. By providing a system for the swift exchange of information between member countries and the coordination of response actions to food safety threats, it has become an indispensable tool for protecting and reassuring European consumers.
The European Commission - together with the countries and organisations belonging to RASFF - continue to work hard in further shaping this essential tool that is contributing to high food safety standards in the EU, preventing dangerous food or feed from reaching the consumer and allowing swift action to be taken to remove such products from the market.
RASFF has come a long way since its beginnings in 1979. Looking to the future, the number of notifications continues to rise and the system is moving into new regions and parts of the world. International cooperation will likely be one priority area for action, for example with other systems like the International Food Safety Authorities Network (INFOSAN) of the World Health Organization.
EFET is the national contact point for Greece since 2005, according to the Common Ministerial Degree 18386 (Government Gazette 1745/Β’/14.12.05).
