Following the long term cooperation of the two institutions, the BiH Food Safety Agency and the Croatian Food Agency (HAH), USAID/Sweden FARMA II project organized the meeting of these organizations in Osijek (Croatia).

At this meeting, the Croatian Food Agency (HAH) presented its work related to the establishment of a database and risk assessment in line with the requests from the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA). The BiH Food Safety Agency requested assistance in establishing the appropriate databases in order to be able to enter the information relevant for risk assessment.

Having in mind that Croatia is the most recent country to join the European Union, and given the fact that HAH has the necessary experience to fulfil the requirements and resolve the obstacles that our institutions will face in the upcoming period, the Croatian Food Agency expressed the willingness to assist in the implementation of all requests defined by the European Food Safety Agency.
