Project Summary

Developing economies need assurances of a safe food supply to improve public health outcomes, enable producers to trade food commodities in regional and global food supply chains, and build food security. A globalized food supply necessitates cross-border cooperation to prevent food incidents and to ensure food safety.  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.  The World Bank has launched the Global Food Safety Partnership (GFSP) that is modelled on and builds upon the capacity building activities of the FSCF and the public-private FSCF Partnership Training Institute Network (PTIN) approach that APEC pioneered. 

This project supports engagement of regulators, industry, and academic experts at FSCF and PTIN meetings, related workshops and capacity building trainings.  Project activities promote alignment in priority areas of strengthening food safety regulatory systems, food incident management, laboratory capacity, risk analysis and supply chain management. This project represents APEC’s commitment to the initial three years of the GFSP’s work plan.  Australia, Indonesia, Korea, the People’s Republic of China, and the United States, will lead components of the project and commit resources to ensure the project’s success.

Relevance

This work is consistent with the Osaka Action Agenda and offers numerous benefits with respect to APEC’s goals in the areas of regulatory cooperation and convergence, human security, regional economic integration and trade facilitation. 

The APEC region accounts for 41% of world population and nearly 50% of global food production.  It is home to the world’s largest agricultural producers with total agricultural exports approximately $500 billion.  This project supports trade facilitation and supply chain performance by reducing behind the border barriers and supply chain impediments to food-related commerce.  Reducing food safety incidents contributes to the free flow of traded food products and provides SMEs with access to global supply chains, thereby contributing to regional economic growth.

The FSCF and its PTIN promote greater alignment in regulatory approaches, including APEC economies’ use of science-based international standards and best practices as well as consistency in risk assessment, laboratory testing, and approaches to conformity assessment.  Strengthening food safety is also critical to improving public health outcomes, enabling producers to trade food commodities with regional and global partners and ensuring greater food security.


This project is
also fully consistent with ongoing efforts by the SCSC to reduce the negative effects that differing standards and conformance measures can have on trade and investment flows in the APEC region. The FSCF and PTIN work stream is one of the showcase activities of the SCSC’s focus on regulatory cooperation and convergence to ensure that divergent regulatory requirements do not create unnecessary obstacles to trade.  The FSCF meetings create the opportunity for regulators from APEC economies to come together to exchange experiences and best practices and agree on common approaches to addressing the most critical food safety capacity building needs. Specific workshops and training programs build connectivity in the agreed priority areas of supply chain management, food safety regulatory systems, laboratory capacity, risk analysis; and food safety incident management.

Objectives

1) Strengthen alignment with science-based international standards and best practices to encourage food safety systems consistent with the WTO TBT and SPS Agreements, thereby supporting regional economic integration;

2) Facilitate the free flow of traded food products by building information sharing networks and regional capacity to respond to high priority food safety hazards, minimize food safety incidents, and improve public health;

3) Develop and implement sustainable training modules focused on agreed priority food safety areas which will contribute to supply chain efficiencies and boost consistency in regulatory approaches.

Multi-Year Approach

The stream of funds and activities possible with a multi-year approach will assure sustainable implementation of the 2011 APEC FSCF-World Bank MOU which sets forth a plan for the organization and execution of projects in food safety that will strengthen domestic food regulatory systems, advance harmonization of standards, bolster human capabilities, and enhance application of preventative controls in the regions’ food supply chain over multiple years.  This meshes with the implementation of the three year FSCF PTIN work plan which was agreed to at SOM 2 in Big Sky, Montana in 2011. PTIN food safety priorities are supply chain management; incident management; risk analysis, laboratory capacity and food safety regulatory systems.  Work in one or a few of these areas would not yield the systemic changes that this project seeks to achieve.  All are needed to enhance food safety systems.  For example, building an incident management network in the APEC region will contribute to managing foodborne outbreaks among economies, while laboratory and regulatory systems enhancements, supply chain management, and increased risk assessment expertise in APEC economies are essential for the prevention of food safety problems.  The project’s planned activities will touch upon all of these areas and, given that they are inter-related, it will be crucial to coordinate work in all of these areas. The multi-year support will ensure that all of these areas do indeed receive attention. 

The World Bank launched the Global Food Safety Partnership in December 2012, acknowledging that the APEC food safety work will serve as the incubator for training that the World Bank will replicate in other regions using the GFSP.  Consistent APEC support for food safety regulatory convergence work over several years, delivered in multiple economies, will result in progress towards ensuring a safer food supply.

Given the primacy of the APEC region as supplier to the world of food ingredients, processed foods and aquacultured seafood, and producer of half the world’s food supply, an APEC commitment to food safety is necessary..  The public-private format of APEC activities echoes that food safety is a shared public-private responsibility.  Aside from the newly forming World Bank GFSP, which is just beginning to accumulate funding from donors, APEC best reflects this model.

TILF/ASF Justification

FSCF PTIN programs are specifically intended to build the capacity of APEC economies to improve their food safety systems. The priorities identified by the FSCF and its PTIN are: 1) supply chain management; 2) food safety regulatory systems; 3) laboratory capacity; 4) risk analysis; and 5) food safety incident management.  Also, this project actively engages a number of economies to lead different activities. Indonesia, for example, will organize one of the 2013 workshops and China’s project supporting improved laboratory capability in developing economies through hands-on work.

Capacity building workshops and training modules put forward in this proposal ensure the sustainability of food safety training in the agreed priority areas and ensure maximum participation since the trainings are posted on the FSCF PTIN web site and developed into online modules that can be used whenever convenient for interested parties in economies.  In addition, funds have been set aside to ensure the participation of APEC travel-eligible economies to attend the meetings, seminars, workshops and other activities as scheduled in the work plan.

The consistent engagement of APEC’s developing economies will be assured through invitation to participate in all workshops and activities.  There will be focused attention to ensure dissemination of training materials to APEC developing economy members. 

Beneficiaries and Outputs

This project benefits from having an existing framework and identified priorities for food safety cooperation through the FSCF and its PTIN.  The overall project will be guided by these leadership bodies, while specific workshops will be led by FSCF members that include China, Australia, the United States, Indonesia and Korea.

The project outputs consist of two cornerstone FSCF meetings (with associated outcome statements) and up to seven topic-specific workshops and activities that concentrate on agreed food safety priority areas.  Workshop outputs will include reproducible training materials as well as information resources that will be posted on the PTIN web site for open access use. The various elements of the project will be led by different economies with general oversight coming from the FSCF leaders, Australia and China, and the United States.  For example, Australia and China will lead the biennial FSCF meetings.  The project will run from 2013-2015.

The participants will be food safety regulators, food companies and their suppliers located in the region, experts from academia, laboratories and testing bodies, food safety standards developers, food safety inspectors, and food safety scientists. Participants will benefit from these activities through the sharing of experiences and information and knowledge/practical experience gained in workshops on the identified food safety priority areas.

Dissemination

Representatives of APEC economies will be encouraged to attend the workshop sessions to receive the knowledge and collaboration outputs directly.  In addition, work on incident management and the food safety supply chain are being developed into reproducible training modules that will be made freely available on the PTIN web site (http://fscf-ptin.apec.org) and the Global Food Safety Partnership knowledge platform.  Other modules will be added over time. Additionally, universities and multinational organizations will be freely able to incorporate the training programs developed into their existing curricula or training programs as needed.

The other means of disseminating outputs, beyond direct participation, will be via electronic publication of reports and workshop documents.  These will be made available to all project stakeholders with no restriction on onward distribution to other relevant stakeholders.

No sale of project outputs is intended.

Gender

Women and men alike are affected by food safety issues.

The project overseer is female as are several of the organizers of specific workshops in the project. The APEC TATF representatives supporting this activity are also female.

Our consultations with the project concept development stakeholder group, in which both male and female participants are reflected, indicate no significant gender disparities in the four project focal areas.

For each workshop, speakers will be recruited to reflect those with strongest ability to contribute to the subject matter, without preference.  Where subject areas may indicate divergences in male and female perspectives, the agenda will be structured to allow all perspectives to be elaborated.

In the evaluation phase following each workshop, we will collect and use sex-disaggregated data from participants.  This will enable us to determine whether gender may contribute to the perspective or experience of the participant and make any needed adjustments in consultation with the project advisory group.

Work Plan

The intent is to produce food safety training modules associated with the workshops and other activities identified in the timeline and encourage the use of these modules by APEC economies in order to improve food safety and achieve greater regulatory coherence in food safety systems.

TIMELINE

2013 - FSCF meeting during SOM 2 with a workshop on food incident management, a PTIN Steering Group meeting, and a discussion of a potential capacity building activity on risk assessment on the margins of the FSCF meeting.  2013 activities will also include an Indonesia-led workshop/activity for SMEs on food standards, and self-funded laboratory capacity work led by the United States.

Each FSCF meeting concludes with a consensus statement on identified food safety needs and recommendations for collective action.  The lab activity is expected to yield a framework towards development of functional laboratory systems.

2014 – During the next year two food safety activities will continue addressing priority areas: a workshop on risk-based food inspections in Seoul, Korea and a China-led Proficiency Testing activity on the margins of SOM 3.

Key outputs from this year will include improved regional laboratory testing capability and knowledge transfer on conducting risk-based inspections.

2015 – During APEC 2015 there will be a meeting of the Food Safety Cooperation Forum, a project organized by Australia on pesticide maximum residue limits (MRLs), and a PTIN Steering Group meeting. 

The purpose of the project on recognition of MRLs among APEC economies is to continue to build on the theme of regulatory convergence.

The project will cover the following major areas:

Food Safety Cooperation Forum:  Once every two years APEC food safety regulators meet to assess progress in building regional capacity in the FSCF’s four identified priorities areas: 1) food safety regulatory systems; 2) food inspection and certification systems; 3) technical skills and human resource capacity; and 4) information sharing and communication networks.  The FSCF is the only opportunity for the leaders of APEC’s food safety regulatory agencies to meet and agree on collaborative efforts to build a robust regional food safety system.  This project would fund two meetings of the FSFC in 2013 and 2015.  The 2015 FSCF would assess outcomes from the workshops and propose further work to better align economies’ regulatory procedures and compliance with international standards.  The PTIN Steering Group will also meet on the margins of the FSCF meetings.


Food Safety Incident Network Seminar: 
In 2011, the FSCF noted the need to share information on emerging food safety issues and communication during food safety emergencies.  Australia will organize a seminar to implement a food safety incident management network for the Asia Pacific region building on the work of INFOSAN.  The seminar, to be held in Indonesia during APEC SOM 2, will bring together a core group of incident management specialists to develop the scope, role, and functions of the network.  The project would also include developing a training module using outcomes of the seminar and a previous seminar recorded at Big Sky on developing frameworks for food safety incident management to make the work more sustainable.


Best Practices in Educating Food Safety Standards to SMEs:
SMEs food suppliers predominate in regional supply chains. Indonesia will lead work in 2013 on educating SMEs to comply with food safety standards. This work will rely on practical examples and case studies presented by SMEs about successful methods for motivating and creating incentives to comply with food safety standards.  The SME workshop may also incorporate use of previously developed PTIN training on aquaculture best practices from APEC project CTI 01 2010 T, Capacity Building in Food Safety: Managing Food Safety Incidents and Developing Food Safety Plans for the Supply Chain, which will now also be part of the GFSP platform. 

Improved Food Inspection Capacity Building Based on Risk Analysis: This project led by Korea continues work on educating APEC economies about the use of risk-based inspection against potential risks to consumers’ health. This will improve food safety management of traded food and minimize food safety incidents. This work exemplifies the further rollout of the FSCF PTIN’s core food safety elements modules to economies in the region. Economy training needs to target a broad range of involved actors which include food inspectors, public officers in charge of food safety, staff members at food sanitation inspection organizations and other relevant officers, and must be repeated in programs throughout the region.  Korea will host this workshop in Seoul, Korea May 23-34, 2014. Plans call for the GFSP HACCP training to be piloted in Korea in connection with this workshop.

Laboratory Capacity: Several activities are planned for this critical area.  The United States will continue work to build laboratory capacity in the region with the third and final phase of a self-funded program in 2013. China will lead work on Proficiency Testing of Veterinary Drug Residues in Food. Here the focus will be on inter-laboratory proficiency testing (PT) program to determine veterinary drug multi-residues in animal origin products, which is important to develop laboratory capabilities within APEC economies, to improve the acceptability of test results that is able to provide solid evidence to facilitate animal origin products trade among these economies. Work is to be conducted in four stages over a nine month period that will consist of in-laboratory activities combined with two face-to-face events. 

Maximum Residue Limits: Australia will lead a project on harmonization of pesticide MRLs in 2015.  There was agreement at the 2011 FSCF meeting to proceed with work on MRLs.  Key issues that will be considered are whether there could be agreement amongst APEC economies to harmonize with a Codex MRL or trading partner MRLs, dietary exposure assessments (chronic and short-term), and the approved or proposed uses of the pesticide in the economy establishing the MRL.  The project will also address data sharing and information exchange programs to facilitate trade and reduce the burden on member economies. It is anticipated that the key output from the project will be development of, and in-principle agreement to, a set of principles to support the harmonization of MRLs in member economies where appropriate to facilitate trade. Outcomes will be discussed at the 2015 FSCF meeting.

Risks

We view the project-related risks as low.  Many of the workshops and activities are planned to take place on the margins of APEC SOM and FSCF meetings in order to maximize participation.   The main challenge will be coordination among project leads, but the plan is to have regular email and conference call exchanges and also to organize planning meetings on the margins of SCSC meetings.

We intend to mitigate this risk associated with the project via the following:

§  Up-front survey of demand – We designed the project program of workshops in close consultation with a broad-representation stakeholder group attuned to public and private sector demand with respect to food safety capacity building needs.  The project design also reflects work to date by the FSCF and its PTIN, including the recommendations from the 2010 Expert Working Group Meeting and the 2011 PTIN Roundtable in Big Sky, Montana which provided inputs to the PTIN three year work plan.

§  Continuing engagement - We intend to collaborate closely with the member economies as workshop planning evolves, agendas are defined, and speakers are selected.  We intend to maintain strict internal deadlines for finalizing agenda and speaker selection.

§  Clear marketing - We have a clear marketing strategy for the workshops, providing clear and concise information about the workshop objectives and content, and sufficient time for member economies to designate representatives to participate.

§  Prompt dissemination of results to all stakeholders and availability for follow-on engagement to put inquiring stakeholders in direct contact with relevant experts.

§  Attuned review of evaluations – This will enable us to factor feedback into enhancing subsequent phases of the project.

Monitoring and Evaluation

The Project Overseer and lead economy for each of the respective workshops will be responsible for tracking progress, which includes the distribution of a project report and participant evaluations for each activity.  Feedback received will be used to make adjustments throughout the life of the project.  Workshop and post-workshop collaboration may also be used to build discussions in other forums.

In addition, there is a Metrics and Evaluation Framework being developed for the GFSP, with seed money from the United States that will begin the process to measure how these capacity building efforts contribute to improved food safety in the region.  Given that the projects included in the MYP work plan will be elements of the GFSP’s five year plan, they will be assessed using the GFSP Framework.

To date, the FSCF and PTIN have worked to measure the output and monitor the impact, and some economies have already reported applying knowledge from PTIN activities.  For example, as a result of the hosting of or participation in APEC food safety workshops, the Philippines has been able to assess the gaps and thus capacity building needs of the Philippines food safety system; and use lessons learned to inform the development of its food laws, standards, and risk based inspections.  The Philippines has also strengthened its communication systems between its departments of health and agriculture. Vietnam is heavily dominated by small producers, who produce about 90% of the products traded by Vietnam.  These small producers have benefited from PTIN training on supply chain management for aquaculture and small scale food production and best practices.

Recently, the Vietnamese government issued regulations and laws on food safety and now the government is populating the implementing guidance using experience from the PTIN and other APEC economies as guidance. Vietnam is aligning its standards with those of other APEC economies.  The ability to replicate activities in multiple APEC economies within a few years should yield more dramatic gains in food safety.

The components of the project are interrelated and will contribute to facilitating trade in safe food products in the Asia Pacific region.  The activities to be undertaken in each element of the project will drive towards achieving this objective, and progress reports to be made as each workshop is developed and executed will keep the work on track.  The Project Overseer and workshop/activity leads will cooperate with FSCF members and the World Bank to ensure that each activity within the project is well executed and meets its goals and objectives.

Linkages

In 2011, APEC Leaders reaffirmed the importance of strengthening food safety in the Asia Pacific region:  “We commend the work of the Food Safety Cooperation Forum and its Partnership Training Institute Network (PTIN) to strengthen food safety systems, better align domestic regulations to international standards, and expand the use of preventative controls in food supply chains in APEC....recognized that improving food safety systems prevents costly food safety incidents, protects public health, and leads to greater confidence in trade, thereby creating a more prosperous and secure region.”

The Agricultural Technical Cooperation Working Group (ATCWG) will be the partner fora for this project.  The ATCWG seeks to enhance agriculture's contribution to the region's economic growth and social well-being by promoting agricultural technical cooperation between APEC members.  This project is also an opportunity to better align the similar efforts in these two fora.  This project directly links to the ongoing food safety work in the SCSC which is carried out by the FSCF and its PTIN.  The APEC Specialist Regional Bodies have and will continue to be engaged in the laboratory component and other project elements, as appropriate.

The World Bank looked to the food safety capacity building work in APEC as a model for the GFSP and is looking to pilot training modules in the Asia Pacific region for the first three years of its 2012-2018 GFSP Work Plan.  Work piloted in the APEC region will be assessed by the World Bank and then scaled up globally when feasible.  The World Bank will be fully engaged in the development and delivery of the training to be carried out within this project.

This project also builds on more than five years of work in the FSCF and PTIN. Given the public-private nature of the PTIN’s activities, government, industry, and academic stakeholders will continue to be invited to participate in the workshops and other elements of the project.  This new work goes to the next stage of addressing policies and practices that impact trade in food products. A coordinated approach to delivering food safety capacity building training for the region will ensure that APEC food safety projects are consistent with FSCF and GFSP priorities.

Project Management

Project management is conducted by the Project Overseer (PO).  Responsibilities of co-sponsors are negotiated by the PO with co-sponsors and confirmed in writing to ensure strong mutual understanding.

The sponsoring economies communicate regularly via teleconference and email and will do so throughout the life span of the project. There are also plans to organize sponsor/co-sponsor meetings on the margins of SCSC meetings.

In addition, Australia, the United States, China, Indonesia and Korea will all have lead responsibility for organizing specific activities within the overall project.  They have developed the content for their activities and begin to elaborate work programs and timelines once the project is approved.

The FSCF and PTIN networks ensure a built in review mechanism among their members for workshop agendas and other materials.

Sustainability

The PTIN’s identified priority capacity building areas are essential to achieving regulatory convergence (supply chain management; food safety regulatory systems; laboratory capacity; risk analysis; and food safety incident management.)  Projects are designed to train regulators and producers in basic international best practice and international standards in each of these areas. The overall goal is to achieve convergence in the management of food safety systems.

A key goal of the FSCF PTIN food safety work in APEC has been to develop reproducible training that can be delivered to as many stakeholders as possible and available on demand.  Training modules on supply chain management and aquaculture supply chain management were the first to be prepared.  Laboratory capacity, risk analysis and incident management modules will be built out as part of this project.  For the items set forth in the work program, each activity consists of the delivery of a workshop and the development of a training module (which incorporates lessons learned from the workshop training) that will be made available online and accessible to trainers throughout the region (as well as globally through the GFSP platform).  The multi-year format ensures that the FSCF PTIN will be able to implement sustainable training in all priority areas. The training module component allows for delivery of training over an extended period of time and to a wider variety of audiences than is possible through workshops alone.

The existing FSCF and PTIN member networks ensure that training tools developed through this project will reach a wide audience given that the FSCF network consists of APEC food safety regulators, with the PTIN adding in local and international food companies and leading academic experts in food safety. The capacity building priorities identified in the project activities are intended to support strengthened food safety systems in APEC economies, enhanced food supply chains, better laboratory practices, and use of science-based international standards.  The long term benefit will be facilitated trade and improved public health outcomes for the region. 

APEC is an ideal region in which to pilot food safety training that can later be reproduced in other regions of the world.  This is because APEC is the world’s largest food and food ingredient trading bloc which is economically and culturally diverse.  Outcomes of project elements should strengthen convergence to international food safety standards (such as Codex) and science-based practices.

It is acknowledged that the capacity building tools derived from this project may need updating in the future.  The fact that an APEC food safety network exists through the FSCF and PTIN will ensure that updates are undertaken promptly as needed.

Cost Efficiency

This project maximizes the cost efficiency of human, time and financial resources by engaging, in a neutral and effective forum, the relevant public and private stakeholders in the region that are responsible for food safety.  The FSCF and PTIN have well established networks that the project overseers will draw upon to ensure maximum APEC member expertise and engagement in this project. 

Many of the workshops and other project activities will be organized together on the margins of APEC SOM meetings to maximize attendance and reduce travel and other resource costs.

Workshops and other activities will produce reproducible training modules that will be accessible online and can be used for years to come.
