Traduction en anglais : Comments on the discussion on preconditions for the issuance of foodstuff certificates by the German public health office : 18 of the Federal Epidemics law and 43 of the law for protection against infections (draft).
The Public Health office of the city of Frankfurt am Main processed from 1994 to 1995 a total of 13,434 applications for health certificates in accordance with 18 of the Federal Epidemics law.
In 78 applicants (=0.56%) the certificate was refused or the applicants barred from exercising their profession because of positive findings in their faeces (usually salmonellae).
Other examining offices had also arrived at clearly less than 1% (0.3-0.6%) positive findings.
These results support the projected change in the revision of the Federal Epidemics law (Law of Protection against Infections) providing for omission of the once-only performed examination of faeces, in favour of an intensive and annually repeated training of personnel in matters of hygiene.
Infection epidemiology data also show that hygiene in the processing of foods of animal origine is of prime importance for the incidence of infections caused by foods, the other important factor being the ways and means of keeping, breeding and producing the animals concerned.
