Most countries throughout the world have a government-connected authority to monitor food safety issues from production to sale. Such authorities advise on national legislation and deliver food safety requirements for home-produced and imported goods. Examples include the Food Standards Authority in the UK, the US Food and Drug Administration, and the State Food and Drug Administration of China. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) conducts risk assessments on food and feed safety in close collaboration with national authorities and provides independent scientific advice and clear communication on existing and emerging risks.

The HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) guidelines published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization are an integral part of the key food safety standard being developed by the International Standards Organization (ISO), ISO22000.
