HNUT40100 Food Regulatory Affairs (O/L)
Academic Year 2021/2022
This module is for students taking the Graduate Diploma or MSc in Food, Nutrition and Health.
Food Regulatory Affairs is an interdisciplinary subject that integrates science, law and policy as they apply to the regulation of the food chain from farm to fork. In this module, you will study the role of European Union (EU) institutions in the development of food regulation, the evolution of the EU approach to food regulation from the early days of “recipe law” and mutual recognition, to the present focus on consumer protection. The role of international organisations with a food regulatory remit will be studied including Codex, WHO, WTO FAO. The development of a risk-based approach to food safety underpinned by science, and current regulatory issues e.g.food fraud and adulteration, food additives and contaminants, legislation on food information for consumers, nutrition and health claims, and food hygiene will be explored.
