      Abstract. Food safety and the trade-off between precaution and increased agricultural exports is at the forefront of policy debate. Discussions of food safety standards and their relation to trade have been prominent in many of the position papers developed in advance of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Ministerial in Doha set for November , for example. Every organization and every person involved with the food chain from farm and sea to table shares responsibility for the safety of food. Our "food safety system" includes producers, processors, shippers, retailers, food preparers, and, ultimately, consumers. The government plays an important role by establishing standards and overseeing their enforcement. Supporting roles are played by trade.

This book examines the current state of regulation of the increasingly global food system, analyzes the underlying causes of the trade conflicts (both those that are currently evident and those that are waiting in the wings), and outlines the steps that could be taken to ensure that food safety and open trade become, at the least, compatible and, at best, mutually by: Food safety has been defined as “the biological, chemical, or physical status of a food that will permit its consumption without incurring excessive risk of injury, morbidity, or mortality.” The inequality in food safety capacity, scientific and regulatory, among various supply chain contributors places the global trade in food at risk.

GHI was specifically established to help build global consensus on the scientific evidence underpinning food safety policy- making. This book provides practical examples in key areas such as microbiology, toxicology and nutrition, as well as discusses possible improvements necessary to sustain the integrity of the global food supply.

in food safety and food control, and Governments need the domestic capacity to effectively coordinate between all stakeholders. This is both to have an impact at Codex and the WTO to shape standards and trade rules, and to take advantage of the tools provided by this system to enhance domestic food safety and expand export opportunities.

The expansion of food safety standards in regulations has introduced new complexity in trade policy dialogues and efforts to expand trade in agricultural products.

A loss of competitiveness due to the costs required to comply with these standards has arisen concern among exporting firms, particularly those in developing by: 9. The paper examines trade among 15 importing (4 developing) countries and 31 (21 developing) exporting countries in the world.

All of these countries are WTO members except for Russia, Kazakhstan, and Vietnam. These three countries are, however, observers.

The paper is. Trade and Food Standards Food standards and trade go hand in hand in ensuring safe, nutritious and sufficient food for a growing world population.

How food safety is addressed in the world trade system is critical for developing countries that continue to rely on agricultural exports.

An analysis shows that adopting a worldwide standard for a toxin affecting nuts and grains could increase trade in these commodities by $38 billion compared with levels under today’s widely divergent national standards. Global food trade is expanding, providing consumers with access to a wider year-round variety of foods at lower prices.

Trade expansion, however, has brought into sharper focus the divergence among countries’ food safety regulations and standards. The Global Standard for Food Safety is developed by food industry experts from retailers, manufacturers and food service organisations to ensure it is rigorous and detailed, yet easy to understand.

First published inthe Food Safety Standard is now in its eighth issue and is well-established globally. It has evolved with input from many leading global specifiers. The authors examine the impact that adopting international food safety standards, and harmonizing standards would have on global food trade patterns.

They estimate the effect of aflatoxin standards in fifteen importing countries (including four developing countries) on exports from thirty one countries (twenty one of them developing).Cited by: 1.

In a fragmented system of conflicting national food safety standards and no globally accepted standards, export prospects for the least developed countries can be severely limited.
