Résumé

The following objectives, principles and procedures for food law shall form a general framework to be followed when measures are taken. Fishery Product Legislation shall (i) pursue a high level of protection of human life and health and the protection of consumers’ interests, including fair practices in food trade, taking account of the protection of animal health and welfare and the environment; (ii) aim to achieve the free movement in the world of fishery products and feed for aquaculture animals manufactured or marked according to the general principles and requirements of these Regulations; (iii) aim at the protection of the interests of consumers and shall provide a basis for consumers to make informed choices in relation to the fishery products they consume; (iv) aim at the prevention of (aa) fraudulent or deceptive practices, (ab) the adulteration of food, or (ac) any other practices which may mislead the consumer; and (v) be based on risk analysis except where this is not appropriate to the circumstances or the nature of the measure. Risk assessment shall be based on the available scientific evidence and undertaken in an independent, objective and transparent manner. Risk management shall take into account the results of risk assessment, and in particular, factors legitimate to the matter under consideration and the precautionary principle, in order to achieve the general objectives of the Fishery Products Legislation. In specific circumstances where, following an assessment of available information, the possibility of harmful effects on health is identified but scientific uncertainty persists, provisional risk management measures necessary to ensure the high level of health protection chosen in The Gambia may be adopted, pending further scientific information for a more comprehensive risk assessment. There shall be open and transparent public consultation, directly or through representative bodies, during the preparation, evaluation and revision of food law except where the urgency of the matter does not allow it.
