Bulgarian Society for Microbiology (BSM)
BULGARIAN SOCIETY FOR MICROBIOLOGY (BSF) was found in 1927. Since 1946 it has become a member of Union of Scientists in Bulgaria. BSF unites around 200 microbiologists working in different fields as general and industrial microbiology, medical microbiology, veterinary microbiology, plant microbiology, soil microbiology and virology. Every 4 years the society held national congresses of microbiology since 1965. The last 13th National congress of microbiology was carried out in the town of Tryavna in 2014. The society organizes also the National congresses in Virology. The last, eighth congress was held in 2016. BSF was also a founder of the Balkan Society for Microbiology. BSF is a member of FEMS which provides financial support and specializations to young Bulgarian scientists in leading laboratories worldwide.
Bulgarian Food Safety Agency (BFSA)
BULGARIAN FOOD SAFETY AGENCY (BFSA) is an integrated body for control of safety and quality of food and feed in Bulgaria. Being established in the beginning of 2011, BFSA follows the best European practices for implementation of highest standards of control in the areas safety and quality of food, food- and feed additives, veterinary medicine and animal welfare, plant protection and fertilizers, phytosanitary control and border inspections. BFSA experts perform strict control throughout the complete food chain, i.e. from the field, farm to the table on daily basis. BFSA is exercising regular cooperation with European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) and with all other EU authorities.
