Establishment of the Food Safety Authority (FSA)

Currently, the food safety system in Qatar is managed by multiple agencies in different government ministries.
Qatar aims to build a world-class 'single' food safety authority as the sole regulator for managing food safety from ‘farm to table’ to ensure the highest level of consumer protection.The project will establish a new Food Safety Authority (FSA) and will work on clarifying roles among government agencies involved in food safety monitoring to deliver a world-class food safety system.

As the National Health Strategy Program 2011-2016 draws to a close, project information is currently being updated and will be available in the coming weeks.

For enquiries please contact the Program Management Office at the Ministry of Public Health.
