ENSURING SYNERGIES BETWEEN FOOD SAFETY AND TRADE FACILITATION

This session will provide an overview of the different areas in which synergies between food safety and trade facilitation are possible. The way in which food safety measures are designed and enforced is key in this respect, including the use of science-based measures and international standards. Risk-based inspections and simplified procedures can help ensure that resources available for inspections and controls are focused where they have the biggest impact. Transparency assists producers and traders in finding information on relevant food safety measures and procedures. Cooperation among border agencies can ensure effective and efficient food safety controls, facilitating safe trade.
