Around the world, regulators and the private sector are coming together to drive improvements in food safety outcomes for public health and trade. Multi-national companies as well as micro and small and medium-sized businesses (MSMEs) are making use of quality assurance schemes to reduce supply chain risks and raise the quality and safety of food products and open up access to markets. 

A number of authorities are recognizing these programmes and using trusted data generated by certification audits to make risk management decisions and conduct inspections. This also offers opportunities for crisis periods, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Recognizing this interest, Codex is developing new guidelines on the recognition and use of voluntary third-party assurance (vTPA).

Join our webinar to learn about the vital role of accreditation to ensure food safety outcomes based on the most recent approach on vTPA programmes. Take part in the discussion alongside regulators, vTPA owners, food industry, accreditation and certification bodies and food safety service providers. 

If you are a regulator or policymaker related to food, STDF in collaboration with UNIDO & IICA is conducting an online survey to increase understanding about regulatory frameworks and practices related to voluntary third-party assurance (vTPA) programmes in food and feed safety.

Please respond to the questions and/or share the survey with your relevant colleagues. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Thank you very much in advance for your response.
