European Standardization in the field of food and feed contributes to improving levels of food safety and protecting the health of consumers. CEN provides validated test methods that are used by food companies for internal checks and also by the competent public authorities for official control purposes. Many of the standards adopted by CEN are developed in response to formal requests from the European Commission, and these standards are used to support the implementation of relevant European legislation.
