Project Summary

This day and a half Roundtable will be held on the margins of SOM 3 in Peru and will bring together food safety regulators and senior food industry representatives to discuss public consultation as a key regulatory tool to improve transparency, efficiency, and effectiveness of food regulations.  The Roundtable is built upon several previous FSCF events including a High Level Food Safety Regulator/Industry Dialogue in 2014 and an Effective Industry/Regulator Cooperation Roundtable held in 2015.  Both of these previous events identified a need for consultation, communication, and collaboration in development of food safety regulations as core concepts and a need for further capacity building regarding how to increase transparency and use public consultation to produce high quality and effective food safety policy. 

Public consultation is one of the main regulatory tools employed to improve transparency, efficiency, and effectiveness of regulation.  The roundtable objectives include an increased understanding for applying the principles of consultation, the mechanisms and technologies available to facilitate public consultation, how to best respond to and incorporate public comments, and a better understanding of how to implement public consultation strategies to improve food safety regulatory outcomes. 

The first day will focus on the basics and principles of public consultation followed by a look at APEC best practices which will explore how economies are conducting public consultations using available tools and best practices.  Hands on exercises will allow participants to address scenarios that will focus on current food safety issues including export certificates, maximum residue limits, and other areas of food safety. 

The second day will include a presentation on the results of the updated Good Regulatory Practices in APEC Member Economies Baseline Study.  This will be followed by a number of food sector related case studies on APEC economy experiences with public comment from both the regulator and industry perspective.  A hands-on roundtable will allow participants to note key takeaways and top learnings from the day and identify next steps, ways to incorporate learning into practice in their own economy, and any further capacity building needs.
