Export Certification Roundtable

Date: February 25 - 26, 2010
Location: Queensland, Australia

This Roundtable was held immediately preceding the Eighteenth session of the CODEX Committee on Food Import and Export Inspection and Certification Systems (CCFICS). The event attracted over 70 experts from across the APEC region; 70 percent represented APEC Member Economies and 30 percent represented food manufactures or associations. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) partnered with Australia’s Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) and the University of Maryland’s Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN) to sponsor this event.
