The Norwegian Food Safety Authority (NFSA) is a governmental body, whose aim is, through regulations and controls, to ensure that food and drinking water are as safe and healthy as possible for consumers and to promote plant, fish and animal health. Our regulations cover ethical keeping of animals and encourage environmentally friendly production. We also regulate and control cosmetics and animal health personnel. Our broad expertise is employed to stimulate and improve our field.

The Norwegian Food Safety Authority’s role is to draft and provide information on legislation, perform risk-based inspections, monitor food safety as well as plant, fish and animal health and provide updates on developments in our field and plan for emergencies. We advise the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, the Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs and the Ministry of Health and Care Services.

The mission of the NFSA is to promote:

  • Safe, healthy food and water
  • Healthy plants, fish and animals
  • Ethical keeping of fish and animals
  • Environmentally friendly production
  • Good quality, honest production and fair trade
  • Innovation in the food sector

In addition, we aim to be a forward-looking and efficient organisation.
