Target 3 – To ensure the regulatory system is effective and contributes to protecting public health by taking risk-based action on the findings from surveillance of residues in foodproducing animals

Target 4 – To ensure that the appropriate infrastructure is in place to achieve targets 1, 2 and 3 and provides value for money and the VMD achieves full cost recovery
