Establish General Food Safety Legislation Responsibility System——Suggestion for the Amendment of the Legislation Responsibility in “Food Safety Law”

April 7, 2016

Abstract: Considering that the low illegal cost constitutes the primary reason for the frequent food safety affairs, the operable comprehensive food safety law responsibility system should be established. We should establish the concept of enterprise as the first responsible person, regard the civil liability as the primary responsibility for food safety, complete articles of liabilities for tort, add articles about domestic supervisory system and responsibility for breach of contract, and establish the operable compensation mechanism; we should introduce administrative compensation responsibility system, and specific institution and procedures of existing administrative accountability; realize the linkage of criminal law responsibility and administrative penalties through judicial interpretation.
