Book – “RASFF history and future challenges” in “Lecciones de Derecho Alimentario 2016”

For the Spanish speaking readers recently has been published an interesting collective opera about food law, which touch many of the main issue on the table nowadays, “Lecciones de Derecho Alimentario 2015-2016”, Aranzadi.

I have been invited from Prof. Luis Gonzalez Vaqué, coordinator of the book, to write down a short history of the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) system, explaining in a practical way its functioning, its actual changes and the future challenges. Special attention was dedicated to its relationships with other existing systems (from the WHO Infosan to the Food Fraud Network) and to the REFIT exercise of the EU Commission on Regulation (EC) No 178/2002.

Many other interesting topics are touched, from food labelling to food frauds, from the new Chinese Food Safety Law to food supplements.
