Within its competencies, CAFIA checks foodstuffs, raw materials for their production, agricultural and tobacco products. The above competences apply to production, storage, transport, and sale (including import). This comprehensive conception of inspections allows focusing efficiently on commodities, analytes or places with the highest estimated number of deficiencies, or where the maximum effect of inspection could be expected. It is therefore a targeted inspection, whose objective is not only monitoring but also the protection of economic interests of both consumers and the state – consumers’ protection from foodstuffs that are unsafe, misleadingly labelled, sold despite their expired use-by-date or of unknown origin. Conditions during manufacturing and sale comprise integral parts of targeted inspections.
