    Abstract / Zusammenfassung

    n Europe, meat inspection procedures have been established in the course of the last century. Techniques available at that time were used. This traditional approach has been taken over with the regularization in the EEC. However, in order to scrutinize this approach, as well as to specify modern tasks of meat inspection, a scientific and more basic approach is required and may involve: (1) identification of the tasks of meat inspection as wanted by the specific society (human health, animal health and welfare, as well as a certain quality level of the product); (2) collection of particular criteria in order to ensure every task mentioned above. This could be addressed by the use of a system based on the principles of Risk Analysis (identification and characterization of a hazard (or unwanted item), assessment of consumer"s exposure). (3) After having deduced the required criteria, an appropriate method must be available for each. Only then may an overall system be suggested, and only then may particular techniques be discussed. There is a need to re-evaluate current meat inspection systems
