Last autumn, the Ministry of Agriculture of Denmark requested a report about the costs of the veterinary inspection official controls. According to this report, more than €3.35 million could be saved.
The report compared the controls in the exporting abattoirs and gave ten recommendations. Now, the appropriate discussions with the abattoirs regarding the implementation of the recommendations will start.
The inspections carried out by the DVFA in the Danish abattoirs play a very important role, because they guarantee that the products have high safety levels, and this improves the access of this products in the exportation markets. The total cost of the controls performed in the abattoirs during last year reached €33.1 million.
