The cooperation with the hygiene service and veterinary administration bodies particularly involves mutually initiating inspections if a breach of legal regulations stipulated in the food act is observed involving the sphere of activity of another regulatory body and passing on the information necessary for the performance of regulatory activities.
In the same way, the CAFIA passes information to the relevant Czech Republic Police bodies if a suspicion of crime arises during the regulatory activity. It also cooperates during the criminal investigation.
The CAFIA closely cooperates with other state administration bodies in the area of preparing amendments to legal regulations, with the goal of attaining mutually interconnected and harmonised legal regulations and uniform procedures in the area of European integration.
Close cooperation with tax authorities results, apart from other things, from the fact that tax authorities are competent to claim penalties imposed in administrative proceedings for breaching legal regulations in the production of food or its putting into circulation.
The CAFIA also cooperates with the Intellectual Property Protection Authority, for example, on checking facts necessary for the inspection of foodstuffs or products which are fakes or inadmissible imitations.
When performing registry services, the CAFIA cooperates with the State Central Archive.
The CAFIA acquires important information from the customs administration bodies regarding foodstuffs imported to our country from abroad. In consultation with trade licensing authorities, it checks the validity of Trade Licences submitted by the persons inspected and passes information on serious breaches of trade performing legal obligations to the relevant licensing authority.
