Multi Annual National Control Plan (MANCP)


The Official Controls Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2017/625 or OCR) provides that the competent authorities must carry out official controls on the basis of a Multi Annual National Control Plan (MANCP).The MANCP describes the strategy of the Member State (for a particular period) in order to guarantee an efficient result of controls and the preservation of the respect of food and feed law, as well as the rules on animal health and welfare, plant health and plant protection products, by operators. It includes among others a description of the competent authorities, of the general organization and of the management of official controls, and of the different control systems.

Measuring Outcome Brussels, 3-4/04/2014

The MANCP is drawn up by the FASFC – in collaboration with the other competent authorities – as this competent authority is in charge of most of the official controls with regard to the OCR. As far as the FASFC is concerned, the duration of the MANCP is the same as that of the business plan of the CEO of the FASFC. This way the strategic and operational objectives of the FASFC are linked to those of the MANCP.

Belgium's first MANCP (2006-2008) was only digitally available, and so hardly accessible for third persons. For reasons of readability and transparency, the following MANCPs were made in book form.

The second MANCP of Belgium (2009-2011) is available in a French, a Dutch, and a German version. There is also a summary in English that describes the most important operational aspects of this MANCP: Risk-based controls & the MANCP (2009-2011) : approach of the Belgian Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain.

The third MANCP (2012-2014) and the fourth MANCP (2015-2017) are available in a French and Dutch version. There is also an English version of the fourth MANCP. The current MANCP, available in a French and Dutch version, is valid for the period 2018-2020.

A report on the evolution of the MANCP is given each year to the European Commission. The basis for this report is the annual activity report of the FASFC.

Additional data regarding the results of the controls in the framework of the MANCP are available via
