Directory Of Food Safety Laboratory Services
Foreword
The Food Safety Promotion Board (FSPB) is one of the six all island implementation bodies established under the British-Irish Agreement Act, 1999. The functions of the Board include linking laboratories, specialised laboratory services, scientific cooperation, promotion of food safety, surveillance of foodborne disease, communication of food alerts, and food safety research.
There are many laboratories on the island of Ireland carrying out food safety analysis. The range of services they provide is extensive. However, these services and the technical competence of these laboratories remain generally unknown to their colleagues, the wider scientific community and the general public.

In collaboration with scientific experts, the FSPB has identified that a Directory Of Food Safety Laboratory Services, available in both Northern Ireland & the Republic of Ireland, would assist public health professionals, regulatory authorities, the food industry & research establishments in their work. In addition, it will also most certainly inform the wider community of the significant work currently being undertaken.


This Directory gives an overview of the wide ranging food safety analytical services available on the island. The laboratories that are included in this first edition are Official & Official Agency labs, non-departmental public body/state agency laboratories & Approved/Authorised laboratories. The Directory will be updated on a regular basis and we look forward to increasing the range and number of laboratories included.
