The paper aims to present the main international organizations with responsibilities in food safety. Not incidentally, these organizations issue legal regulations in this area. Even if they are very popular, few know their responsibilities and competencies. The main international organization that develops food safety regulations, some of them have exclusive competences in the field of food safety, as European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) or the Codex Alimentarius Commission, and others have only a component of food safety, such as World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), United Nations for Food and Agriculture (FAO), World Health Organization (WHO) and World Trade Organization (WTO).
