Food safety is a scientific study that refers to handling, preparation, and storage of food in numerous ways to prevent food-borne diseases. The occurrence of two or more cases of similar illnesses due to ingestion of a common food is identified as a food-borne disease outbreak. If the common food has led to food borne outbreak, the regulations are strictly applied to constrain the growth of the outbreaks through food. Food is governed by a complexity of laws and regulations by food processing and services industries such as European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF.) These bodies ensure that the food is safe and has adequate quality across all the countries. The General Food Law Regulation is implemented as it ensures great level of protection to the human life.

General Food Law (Regulation (EC) No 178/2002) this law imposes general obligations to provide safe food.

Regulation (EC) No 852/2004 is imposed on the hygiene of foodstuffs, food businesses.

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is imposed to transform nation’s food safety system as it helps to shift the focus from responding to foodborne illness to preventing foodborne illness.

Regulation (EC) 178/2002, the General Food Law Regulation, lays down definitions, principles, and obligations covering all stages of food/feed production and distribution.

EU Regulation No. 2073/2005 is on microbiological criteria for foods. This legislation is for the food testing and to maintain its hygiene
