Building Convergence in Food Safety Standards and Regulatory Systems

Welcome! This 4-day APEC program seeks to build capacity among APEC economies, particularly developing economies to build assurances of a safe food supply to improve public health outcomes, enable producers to trade their food commodities in regional and global food supply chains, and to build food security.

This series of workshops are the first piece of a three-year APEC project that was approved in December 2012. With a globalized food supply, the need for cross-border cooperation to prevent food incidents and ensure food safety has become extremely urgent. Australia and China demonstrated foresight and leadership in establishing the Food Safety Cooperation Forum (FSCF) which has been recognized by APEC Leaders as a priority each year since 2007. This project will support on-going engagement of regulators, industry, and academic experts at FSCF meetings, related workshops and PTIN capacity building trainings. The April activities will address strengthening food safety regulatory systems, food incident management, and risk assessment, and supply chain management.
