30 March 2021

Article: 55/1307

From 1 April 2021, Food Standards Scotland (FSS) will take on formal responsibility for making sure businesses comply with laws ensuring feed for animals is safe in Scotland. FSS will pick up this role from Scottish local authorities, who have been responsible for delivering the service at present.

FSS will provide additional support and funding to organisations involved in this work and, under new regulations introduced by the Scottish Parliament, will be able to delegate functions to other qualified organisations to help with delivery.
