Since being hired as a legal officer in the Ministry of Agriculture in 1990, I have been involved with the food sector both in relation to the regulatory framework and the organization of the control. Over the years, I have been involved in the implementation of the Single European Market, the revision of food law to one law, the jointing of food and veterinary controls under national auspices and the implementation of the Smiley scheme. I was the Danish chief negotiator on the new control regulation, which sets the framework for the Member States' control within the agro-food chain. Currently I am - amongst others - the Danish representative in the EU Food Fraud Network, which in addition to representatives of the EEA countries consists of the Commission and EUROPOL. I am also affiliated with Karnov as author in the comments on the Food Act.
