The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is a non-ministerial department and asked the National Audit Office to undertake an efficiency review in order to identify whether it was delivering the official controls required for the United Kingdom meat industry under European and UK legislation as efficiently as possible. The review took place early in 2013 and encompassed both frontline operational and support functions. Findings were presented to the FSA Board in July 2013, and an action plan developed in response.
