Project Summary

The key objective of this project is to facilitate the utilisation of the APEC Import Maximum Residue Limit (MRL) Guideline for Pesticides (the Guideline) throughout APEC member economies, to enhance trade and regulatory convergence. This Guideline was developed throughout 2015, and is currently being endorsed through the APEC fora. Australia intends to undertake an implementation workshop held in Australia in late-2016. Australia plan to show-case the guideline through awareness building and stakeholder engagement in the margins of SOM3 and the Food Security Week Peru, 2016. In-country training would also be undertaken as a follow-on/replication of the work undertaken in Viet Nam, 2017.

The Strategy intends to build technical expertise to effectively implement the Guideline. This would be done through a singular risk assessment training workshop with a particular focus on dietary exposure assessments; potential in-country follow-on workshops/training; testing scenarios in the Guideline (i.e. road testing & worked examples); awareness raising/outreach/stakeholder engagement. Additional work that will complement the stated objectives are to facilitate access to the Guideline through identifying translation needs and leveraging from the APEC FSCF roll-over funds facilitated by China to build laboratory capacity work with a focus on pesticide testing.
