Association of Port Health Authorities

Port Health Controls

Port Health Authorities and Local Authorities have a number of different port health functions which together protect the Public, Environmental and Animal Health of the UK. These functions include ensuring infectious disease does not spread from vessels, enforcing controls on imported food and sampling shellfish beds for contamination. Port Health Authorities are also responsible for enforcing the new smoke free legislation and are an integral part of the strategy to deal with national emergencies.
