Project Summary

Grain is major nutrition source and main goods of trade. Unharmonized global measurement and standards on grain contaminants such as mycotoxins and heavy metals caused loss of billions of tons of grain, billions of US dollars per year and become technical barriers in free trade. To implement APEC’s long term priority of improving food safety and facilitating free trade, and to support the 2015 Leaders’ Declaration which “emphasized the need for improved sustainable agriculture and food security” in particular, the project aims to improve member economies’ mycotoxin and heavy metal measurement capabilities and mutual recognition and enhance international partnerships for the benefits of grain safety and trade in the region. The project proposes a two-day Workshop on “Measurement and Standards for Grain Food Safety and Free Trade” in November 2016 in Viet Nam, in conjunction with the 2016 APMP General Assembly.

Relevance

Grain food is a major nutrition source as well as a main commodity for trade in Asia Pacific region. Each year, approx. 4 billion tons of grain is produced worldwide to supply 9 billion people. 6 APEC member economies are among the world’s top 10 grain exporting countries. Mycotoxins and heavy metals are two key contaminants in grain that are also highly suspected as causes of cancer. 25% of crops in the world are affected by mycotoxins, causing a loss of nearly 1 billion tons of foodstuffs per year. Crop losses from mycotoxin contamination in the US have amounted to $932 million annually. About 12 million tons of grains were contaminated by heavy metals annually in China, causing a loss of 3.3 billion US Dollars in 2014. Accurate and internationally harmonized measurement standards and methods for mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain food could ensure grain safety, narrow FTA capacity gaps and reduce technical barriers to trade in the region. Metrology Institutes (MIs) in each economy are responsible for developing peak measurement standards and reference methods to solve food safety issues. However, due to the complexity of research, the technical infrastructure does not exist or is underdeveloped in most member economies, especially in those developing economies.

To benefit all the economies in APEC region, the project will unite experts from related organizations for the implementation of its goal. Asia Pacific Metrology Program (APMP) is the grouping of MIs – the “Regional Metrology Organization” (RMO) with primary objective to strengthen the measurement infrastructure in the Asia Pacific region. Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC) is a cooperation of accreditation bodies in the Asia Pacific region and Asia Pacific Legal Metrology Forum (APLMF) is a grouping of legal metrology authorities. APMP, APLAC, APLMF are Specialist Regional Bodies (SRBs) of APEC, members of the Sub-Committee on Standards and Conformance’s (SCSC), responsible for the development of the standards and conformance infrastructure in the region of Asia Pacific jointly worked as metrology community, policy community and accreditation community to solve challenges in grain safety. To maximize the participation of APEC economies, APMP will also work closely with its counterpart RMO in the Americas, the Inter-American Metrology System (SIM), which includes five non-APMP APEC economies – the USA, Canada, Mexico, Peru and Chile. Bringing together experts from APMP, APLAC, APLMF, SIM and other stakeholders, the project aims to strengthen measurement and standards infrastructure and increase international partnerships through measurement capacity building in mycotoxins and heavy metals to improve grain safety and narrow FTA capacity gaps in APEC for the benefits of all APEC economies.

This project directly addresses two Rank 1 priorities: 1) food production, processing, supply chain and trade, including food safety and security, sustainable agriculture, sustainability of these activities and rural development, technical cooperation and new technologies, as well as implementation of the Food Security Roadmap Towards 2020 and the Food security Business Plan, and 2) standards, conformity assessment, technical regulations, regulatory cooperation, and regulatory coherence, including good regulatory practices. This project will address these priorities in several ways. Firstly, it will provide education, training to developing economies, and develop an action plan for improving regional measurement capabilities for mycotoxins and heavy metals, which will support the reliability and mutual acceptance of data used in grain trade. Secondly, it will provide technical support to governments of member economies in drafting appropriate policies and developing appropriate standards, conformity assessment and regulatory frameworks to support these activities.

Objectives

1) To share the latest technological achievements in grain safety related measurements and standards, in particular, in reference materials and measurement methods for mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain food;

2) A pre-workshop survey will be conducted to assist to identify priority areas and needs for research, training, policy improvement and multilateral cooperation, and explore ways of enhancing regional collaboration;

3) To develop an action plan for developing measurement standards and capabilities in APEC economies relating grain food safety, where measurement challenges will be highlighted;

4) To develop recommendations for subsequent activities to improve local and regional measurement and standards infrastructure, contributing to food safety in the region. And to build a network of experts in grain food safety from organizations of technical metrology, legal metrology, government regulators, industry, research institutes, etc. in a long-term to support the capability building of the developing economies.

Alignment

This project supports APEC’s long-term priority of improving food safety and free trade through the assisting member economies in developing and improving harmonized and mutually recognized measurement standards and methods. APEC has gradually incorporated issues related to food security in its agenda since 1996, followed by building the APEC food system and creating the food safety cooperation forum.  And APEC Leaders have noted that food security is of primary importance to the Asia-Pacific region. The 2014 Leaders' Declaration encouraged harmonization with international science-based standards, built capacity in areas that will facilitate trade, and enhanced communication and collaboration between industry and regulators to address emerging food safety issues to improve food safety regulatory systems. 2014 Beijing Declaration stressed that food security is of primary importance to the Asia-Pacific region because it is home to a large proportion of the world’s hungry people. 2015 Leaders' Declaration emphasized the need for improved sustainable agriculture, food security, food safety, and nutrition to build resilient communities across the region. Grain safety is an integral part of food safety. Development of internationally recognized measurement and standards that support accurate quantification of mycotoxins and heavy metals is critical to ensure grain safety, narrow FTA capacity gaps and reduce technical barriers to trade in APEC.

This project supports the Sub-Committee on Standards and Conformance’s (SCSC’s) mission, as laid out in its essential goal, to harmonize standards and conformance procedures improve the efficiency of production and facilitate the conduct of international trade, resulting in more rapid trade flows, reduced costs and greater integration of production networks. This project is also aligned with SCSC multi-year project, building convergence in food safety standards and regulatory systems helps facilitate trade through the strengthening of food safety laboratory practices. This project fits the 2016 theme and priority of enhancing the regional food market. It would contribute to the harmonization of measurement and standards of mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain, and promotion in the APEC region the adoption of best measurement practices and methodologies.

TILF/ASF Justification

Technical barriers to trade rising from grain safety stemmed from unharmonized global measurement and standards on mycotoxins and heavy metals. Measurement and standards enable the reliable quantification of mycotoxin and heavy metals in grain and assure the global mutual recognition via international comparison, authoritative methods and certified reference materials. However, as its complexity, the technical infrastructure does not exist or is underdeveloped in most economies, especially developing economies.

Our project is relevant with action in standards and conformance of the Osaka Action Agenda, which will contribute to the task of APEC trade and investment liberalization and facilitation highlighted in the Osaka Action Agenda through helping member economies to improve their measurement standards and achieve mutual recognition. The project will contribute to this item from the following prospects: Firstly, during the workshop, questionnaires will be circulated in advance to assess developing economies’ needs and concerns, and the latest technical development will be shared. Secondly, a gradually balanced technical development will lead to the realization of international equivalence and mutual recognition of measurement standards and technologies among all APEC economies. Thirdly, in a long-term, developing member economies will align their domestic standards with international standards, and finally ensure the transparency of standards and conformity assessment of all APEC economies.

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: Many advanced MIs in the world do academic research on mycotoxins and heavy metals measurements: they develop techniques, standards, reference materials and methods to achieve highly accurate, reliable and internationally consistent measurements. Cutting edge research projects include: diversity of mycotoxins, mycotoxin metabolite, elemental speciation, pure and matrix certified reference material development. Meanwhile, the International Bureau for Weights and Measures (BIPM) as the international metrology organization has developed plans, mechanisms and initiatives to enhance research and collaboration in mycotoxins metrology areas. Food industries focus on developed screening methods that will increase the testing efficiency and decrease the cost. Outcomes of all these activities have created a very solid basis for this project.

The only APEC-funded part of this project will be a two-day Workshop themed “Regional Workshop on Measurement and Standards for Grain Food Safety and Free Trade” held on November 9 & 10, 2016, combining with the 2016 annual meeting of APMP Food Safety Focus Group (FSFG). The Workshop will focus on two themes: measurement of mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain food, with detailed presentation and discussion topics including: advance measurement techniques of mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain food, latest measurement standards, certified reference material (CRM) development, etc. The Workshop will include two parts: in the plenary session, distinguished experts from the MIs of member economies, international and regional metrology organizations such as BIPM and APMP will introduce the latest strategic plans, standards and R&D outcomes; in the panel discussion session, participants of APEC member economies will be divided up into smaller groups to have more in-depth discussion on assigned topics and report back to the full meeting on key conclusions.  Finally, the Workshop will generate an Action Work Plan to initiate APMP’s efforts in developing a metrological infrastructure to help the capability building, harmonization of measurement and standards of mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain food in all APEC economies. 

Outcomes: Outcomes of this project will not be limited to a one-off technical exchange but make substantive, long-term benefits to APEC member economies in technical capacity building for mycotoxins and heavy metals metrology. Specific changes the outputs are expected to achieve in the medium-term include:

a) This Workshop will very likely become a demonstration workshop initiating APEC’s long-term efforts for mycotoxins and heavy metals metrology capacity building. Periodical or similar workshops will be discussed and may occur in conjunction with the future annual meetings of APMP to deliver sustainable outputs;

b) This Workshop at the same time combines with the meeting of the “Food Safety Focus Group” set up by APMP. This focus group will get together scientists in relevance and create multilateral collaborative platforms to enable regular technology exchange and coordinated efforts between MIs of APEC member economies;

c) Participants can conduct workshops back in their home economy especially their metrology institutes and disseminate the latest technological achievements in grain safety related measurements and standards, in particular, in reference materials and measurement methods of mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain food;

d) The Workshop will generate an Action Plan, of which the implementation will help promote the substantive conduction of bilateral and multilateral technical cooperation activities in various forms such as trainings, joint research, personnel exchange, APMP-APLAC joint PTs and standard comparisons;

e) By strengthening the measurement technical infrastructure, this project would pay more attention to the implementation of the post-Workshop, and ultimately contribute to the mutual recognition and free trade of mycotoxins and heavy metals in the APEC region. 

Beneficiaries: Key beneficiaries are MIs. The Workshop will mainly be open to MIs of all 21 APEC member economies, including members of APMP and SIM. With the potential support of APMP fund, some of non-APEC APMP member economies will also be encouraged to join the workshop. Participants will need to meet specific criteria, such as being a measurement scientist in food area, a relevant managerial staff member, having the support of their organizations and the authority to disseminate knowledge both within their own organizations and to other relevant stakeholders in order to build measurement capacity and promote the harmonization of standards in their economies.

The workshop also needs to educate the broader community, not just metrologists. Other beneficiaries will include representatives from recognized government agencies, health, industries, food analysis labs and related research institutions that assist with the policy adoption to increase the safety and trade of grain. Government officials from authorities can share current and pending regulations regarding mycotoxins and heavy metals. They may also suggest some new policies about research and application of mycotoxins and heavy metals metrology technologies, which, as an ideal consequence, can become part of the guidance for MIs. Enterprises will bring the most accurate industrial demand and support the researchers and experts to learn the market.

The project will invite experts from the fields of measurement, standard, accreditation, testing, regulation, etc. to work closely together to best satisfy the objective of the project. We plan to invite 12 speakers, 11 from APEC members, like Australia, China, Hong Kong China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, and the United States, and 1 from an advanced MI in Europe. Some experts will also represent regional or international organizations of APMP, APLAC, APLMF, BIPM, FAO etc.. They will either give presentations in the plenary session, or act as panelists or moderators in panel discussion session to significantly increase the quality of project outcomes given their respective strengths in different fields of specialty.

This workshop will have invitation for women to present lectures and attend the event and both APMP and APEC will promote the inclusion of women in follow-up projects.

As a whole, the number of delegates will reach at least 50, including 12 invited expert speakers, 22 participants from the 11 APEC travel-eligible economies, about 10 delegates from other APEC economies, 6 researchers from NIM and other interested stakeholders.

Dissemination

a) During the workshop, technical information will be disseminated to academia (experts, researchers and professionals from MIs and related research institutions of the APEC member economies), APEC economy governments representatives, and industries via presentations and discussions;

b) After the workshop, an Action Plan providing guidance for APMP economies in developing a metrological infrastructure for mycotoxins in food, will be distributed (electronic publication). The Action Plan will be also shared with the SCSC WG.

c) Before and after the event, we will have surveys and the event summary shared on the APMP website to keep all the parties updated with the progress of the project. The APMP website is maintained by APMP Secretariat and no funds from the project will be use to maintain this website. Outputs and results could be transferred by other possible channels like web pages of APEC’s Food Safety Cooperation Forum, etc. APEC economies will be notified of the materials on the website.

d) During the workshop, materials about measurement methods and CRMs involving food safety will be distributed to industry participants to extend awareness of this issue.

Gender

This Workshop is a promising project that will initiate APEC’s long-term efforts for mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain food metrology capacity building, where participation and engagement of women will be well ensured. The metrological institute and related stakeholders involved in this project has a reasonable proportion of female scientists or administrators. APEC and APMP all have participation of women in their committees and working groups. The organizers of this project are committed to promote the inclusion of women in the workshop, as invited speakers, as panel experts and general attendees to about 40% level. The project overseer is also woman.

Grain food is a major nutrition source, and it’s the largest product of agriculture sector. The grain food safety is closely related to everyone. The report “gender and food security” (available at the worldbank website as a pdf), demonstrates the vital and often unacknowledged role that women play in agriculture, and it emphasizes women’s critical role in ensuring sustainable agricultural development translates into household-level improvements in food security.  To make matter worse, women have less chance for the technology capability development and the policy formulation in the grain safety. 

The resulting techniques and applications will be shared with all relevant or interested parties, where women will be included. In the long term of regional measurement capacity building, by tackling the grain safety, promoting harmonization of standards and improving the efficiency of production and facilitate the conduct of international trade and reducing the prices, everyone will be the ultimate beneficiaries, including those who suffers from starvation.

Work Plan

07/2016: Establish workshop framework: drafting of workshop agenda, identification of qualified speakers, invitation of speakers, identification of topics re: mycotoxins and heavy metals contamination in food, health risk, metabolite, speciation, certified reference materials, measurement methods and standards.

08-10/2016: Preparation and organization of the workshop: identification and invitation of audience, promotion of the workshop to ensure effective participation, confirm speakers, logistical preparations for meeting rooms, facilities, meals, transportations, etc., prepare all required paper-work and pre-survey; 

11.09-11.10/2016: Open the workshop: A Two-day Workshop will be held in Da Nang, Viet Nam, as a satellite workshop of the 2016 APMP Food Safety Focus Group to enable a greater participation of APMP member institutes. Plenary session and panel discussion will be carried out during the workshop. 

12/2016-04/2017: Conclude the workshop: wrap up the outcomes and outputs, develop, circulate and finalize the Action Plan, conduct surveys to assess the workshop quality and effectiveness, prepare workshop report for APEC. A web portal that will be established at the APMP website with APMP funds to share presentations, the action plan, and follow-up information; APEC participants will have access to this web portal. 

05/2017-06/2017: Continue the implementation of the Action Plan via efforts of MIs, APMP, and other related stakeholders: start planning for training, workshops, seminar, comparisons and APLAC-APMP joint PTs etc. to improve local and regional measurement and standards infrastructure for mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain food, contributing to free trade in the APEC region. The follow-up events will be carried with funds of APMP and MIs of the region, or by applying for new APEC projects. Other bilateral or multilateral capacity building activities, such as joint research, training, seminars and comparisons will also be organized to continuously improve local and regional measurement and standards infrastructure for mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain food.

Risks

Perhaps the biggest problem is that many APEC MIs as well as industries lack the technical basis to develop measurement and standards capabilities in mycotoxin areas. The diversity and complexity of mycotoxin represent significant challenges for metrology. Very few MIs have capabilities in these areas of technology. Some have capabilities in limited items of measurements but not a comprehensive set of expertise. It will take a fairly long time to develop sufficient measurement capabilities in, for instance, screening methods, pure substance certification, preparation of solution, matrix certified reference material, high accuracy measurement techniques and the assessment of mycotoxin transition in grain food. The Action Plan will identify follow up technical training and coordination of measurement comparisons and APMP-APLAC joint PT schemes to be key needs of the next step.

The second difficulty lies in the harmonization of standards between different APEC economies. For example, many pieces of regulations have been passed in several APEC economies, but they are different in mycotoxin maximum residue limits (MRLs) for imported foods. This is main reason that the proposers wanted to link the SCSC, which developing a guideline to facilitate the harmonization of standards which will support the development of metrology community in APEC. Politicians also need to be educated on measurement technology requirements. This is the general issue that needs to be addressed by each APEC economy. APMP is committed to address the measurement challenges found in the Action plan and work together with SCSC and FSCF to accelerate the implementation of regulations and adoption of best measurement practices.

Monitoring and Evaluation

The workshop would be followed up by several surveys of participants (pre-workshop, near, medium, and long term) to evaluate its effectiveness. Information to be collected will include:

a) What capabilities do you maintain on measuring mycotoxin and heavy metal in grain? What kinds of CRMs can you produce?

b)  What is the most important information you learn from this workshop? How will these impact the measurement and standards capabilities development in your economy?

c)  What is the regulatory situation in your economy and in the region? How do they impact metrology needs for mycotoxins and heavy metals in grain food? How do they impact the work for your MI?

d) What are the strengths of your economy (in terms of technology, infrastructure, etc.) that would help meet the measurements and standards challenges in these areas?

e) What are your short term and long term needs for capacity development to meet these challenges (in terms of technology, infrastructure, metrology, training, financial resources, etc.)? How do these impact the work of your MI?

f) What mechanisms will you establish and what measures will you take to develop measurement and standards capabilities for mycotoxins and heavy metals? How is that progressed?

g) What training do you need to improve measurement and standards capabilities to implement grain safety policies? What training opportunities can you provide for developing economies or do you like to seek from Leading MIs? 

Besides surveys, during the workshop, interviews will be carried out on the needs of other stakeholders, re: industries, research institutes.

The vision underpinning the workshop is not only for technology exchange, but also the development of a network of experts in the APEC region to maintain communications into the future. The feedbacks collected can be used to make a more practical work plan and to coordinate the existing and future activities of member economies towards measurement capability building, harmonization of standards, etc., which each APEC member economy can benefit.  In addition, PO will consider other indicators to track the implementation of this project, such as number of participants at the workshop (supposed to have more than 50 delegates, from 21 APEC member economies, related international organizations and industries).

Linkages

MIs of APEC member economies, food safety research institutes, testing labs, industries (including member institutes of APLAC and APLMF) are the direct target audience of this Workshop. Non-APEC stakeholders including experts from metrology institutes of UK and France will be approached to contribute as speakers.

Information will be disseminated to the Agricultural Technical Cooperation Working Group (ATCWG) and the APEC Food Safety Cooperation Forum (FSCF) and its Partnership Training Institute Network (FSCF PTIN) to encourage cross collaboration and to ensure that there is no duplication of efforts for previous and ongoing APEC initiatives. Noting that APMP is also one of the five “specialist Regional Bodies” in standards and conformance identified by APEC SCSC. Stakeholders from e.g. BIPM, APLMF and APLAC will also be invited. The APMP and BIPM have organized related workshops (October, 2015, APMP; April, 2016, BIPM).

The project is in conjunction with the APMP FSFG meeting, based on the previous work done by FSFG in 2015, this workshop will promote the priority work of both.

Lastly, APEC is the best source for these funds because of the role of the promoting Standards and Conformance Framework to overcome the Technical Barriers to Trade in the APEC region. And output of the workshop can be shared in APEC to promote the opportunities to extend linkages and better disseminate within industry and food safety sectors to build greater awareness of the importance of metrology to trade, economy, societal and health and wellbeing of consumers.

Sustainability

Food hazards, including mycotoxins and heavy metals contaminants, can enter food supply chain at any point from farm to table. Most of these hazards should be detected from food when food is purchased or consumed. To improve the accuracy and reliability (and therefore the credibility) of measurements is the sole responsibility of MIs. At the present time, most APEC economies lack the measurement and standards capabilities to implement food safety policies. More joint research and measurement inter-comparisons need to be carried out. More detailed regional technical training needs have to be identified, and the coordination and communication between the metrology and meteorological communities and policy makers to be increased.

This project will not be limited to a one-time technical exchange but will attempt to make substantive, long-term benefits to APEC member economies in technical capacity building for food safety metrology, through:

a) A web portal that will be established at the APMP website with APMP funds to share presentations, the action plan, and follow-up information;

b) Every year, APMP Technical Committees (TCs) will organize workshops as side events of the APMP annual meeting. In the future, the APMP FSFG can organize periodical workshop to deliver sustainable outputs;

c) There are practical channels in the future to support travels of invited speakers and participants from APEC developing economies. They include: subsequent APEC funds (if possible), APMP fund (limited), the host’s financial support, and a funding sponsored by BIPM to support APMP activities.

d) Other bilateral or multilateral capacity building activities, such as joint research, training, seminars and comparisons will also be organized to continuously improve local and regional measurement and standards infrastructure for food safety.
