This introductory volume presents the main scope and objectives of the Tool. It takes the reader through its structure (dimensions, sub-dimensions, competencies and assessment criteria) and presents the assessment approach, from the ratings to the descriptive analysis supporting the allocation of scores. The volume also contains a glossary and a list of the Codex documents referenced in the Tool. The FAO/WHO Food Control System Assessment Tool provides a harmonized, objective and consensual basis for analysing the performance of a national food control system, with the aim of protecting the health of consumers and ensuring fair practices in the food trade. It seeks to support countries in identifying and prioritizing areas of improvement and planning activities to reach expected outcomes and monitor progress. The Tool is based on Codex principles and Guidelines for National Food Control Systems as well as other relevant Codex guidance.
