Consumer, Health and Food Executive Agency

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Consumer, Health and Food Executive Agency (CHAFEA; until 2014 known as the Executive Agency for the Public Health Programme, PHEA) of the European Commission was established in 2005 to improve the implementation of the Community public health programme . In 2008, the European Commission transformed PHEA into the Executive Agency for Health and Consumers which on 1 January 2014 changed its name to the current one. The agency is entrusted with new tasks in the field of consumer protection and food safety training, and its mandate was extended until the end of 2015.

On 1 January 2014, the Executive Agency for Health and Consumers (EAHC) changed its name to Consumers Health And Food Executive Agency (CHAFEA). The CHAFEA is the legal successor of the former EAHC. It is a temporary EU agency, and it reports to the Health and Consumer Protection Directorate General. It is located in Luxembourg.
