EU – EU helps strengthen food safety controls in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Food Safety News

The European Union is providing more than 30 vehicles for use by authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina for phytosanitary inspections as well as food controls and monitoring.

The 33 new off-road vehicles worth €467,000 ($540,000) will be used by authorities in the country to support alignment with EU standards. Bosnia and Herzegovina is not yet an EU member country.

Food and feed chain monitoring will be faster, the delay from taking a sample during border inspections until the final analysis will be shortened, and the time spent on issuing phytosanitary certificates will be reduced.
