The Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) is a crucial tool for facing emergencies concerning food safety in the European Union. The essay examines its main features taking into account the Commission Regulation No. 16/2011 laying down the relevant implementing measures, which sheds light, in particular, on the issue of the information to be notified through the system and on the role of the Commission as manager of the network. Finally, the need for a minimum of guarantees protecting the interests of food and feed business operators is advocated.
