Our Mission
Our Mandate: Protection
AGES is THE leading expert organisation for minimising healthcare risks, food safety risks, food
security risks and consumer protection risks.
Our Responsibility: Austria
AGES is a limited liability company fully-owned by the Republic of Austria, which carries out
services based on the Health and Food Safety Act (GESG), special administrative laws and the
relevant European directives.
Our Tool: Knowledge
AGES works at interdisciplinary levels. Thus, we use bundled, scientifically proven expert
knowledge. AGES is a partner in national and international networks.
Our Competence: Comprehensive Solutions
The AGES service range encompasses analysis, assessment, monitoring, certification and
licensing. We use an approach based on risk assessment principles to maximise healthcare,
food safety and consumer protection within AGES’s reach: we assess risks, provide risk
communications, give advice on risk management and also conduct risk management in
government agencies.

  • 2. www.ages.at 2 Our Vision “Health for Humans, Animals and Plants”
  • 3. www.ages.at 3 Our Mission Our Mandate: Protection AGES is THE leading expert organisation for minimising healthcare risks, food safety risks, food security risks and consumer protection risks. Our Responsibility: Austria AGES is a limited liability company fully-owned by the Republic of Austria, which carries out services based on the Health and Food Safety Act (GESG), special administrative laws and the relevant European directives. Our Tool: Knowledge AGES works at interdisciplinary levels. Thus, we use bundled, scientifically proven expert knowledge. AGES is a partner in national and international networks. Our Competence: Comprehensive Solutions The AGES service range encompasses analysis, assessment, monitoring, certification and licensing. We use an approach based on risk assessment principles to maximise healthcare, food safety and consumer protection within AGES’s reach: we assess risks, provide risk communications, give advice on risk management and also conduct risk management in government agencies.
