Food safety: cross-check experts - apply for approval

Service Description

As part of the official monitoring of foodstuffs and consumer goods, random samples of foodstuffs, cosmetic products, consumer goods and tobacco products are regularly taken to check their marketability.

Only private experts who have been approved by the competent authority as counter-sample experts for this activity are authorized to examine the counter-samples or duplicate samples (with the exception of feedstuffs) specified in Section 43 (1) Sentence 2 of the German Food and Feed Code (LFGB) and Section 31 (3) Sentence 1 of the German Tobacco Products Act (TabakerzG).

Persons who are established in a Member State of the European Union or in another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area for the purpose of practicing the profession of counter-sampling expert and who wish to practice the profession of counter-sampling expert in Germany only temporarily and occasionally as a service do not require a license, but must notify the competent authority in writing or electronically prior to their first activity. For this, reference is made to the service description "Food safety: Notification of temporary and occasional cross-border provision of services by counter-sample experts".
