This contract is a framework contract for the provisions of a Public & Agricultural Laboratory Service and a Public & Agricultural Analyst Service.
The North East region’s submission of samples for analysis is generally distributed throughout the year.
Samples are procured by the individual food authorities in the North East region further to delivery of annual compositional sampling programmes. Samples are also taken by individual councils in conjunction with their Food Authority regulatory enforcement roles which require examination and analytical testing when circumstances dictate and are directed by;
·         Food poisoning investigations
·         Concerns about safety or compositional quality of food because of practices or procedures observed during the inspection of food businesses
·         Complaint investigations
·         Controls exercised under the home authority principle
·         Verification of process monitoring undertaken be a food manufacturer or processor
·         National, regional or local surveys organised by the HPA, LGR, FSA or the North East Food Liaison Group.
With regards to the surveys a joint annual sampling plan is agreed. This generally involves a monthly sampling project that individual councils have the option to support. The Public & Agricultural Analyst will advise on and be closely involved in the plan development.
