Network

Food Industry Associations: Their Role and Value in Policy and Regulation

Download: English Version (PDF) | Spanish Version (PDF)

Over time, the FSCF PTIN's activities will help build an APEC-wide network of food safety experts which will work to manage urgent food safety issues and help prevent food safety incidents. APEC Member Economies will benefit from supporting and working with the FSCF PTIN, as FSCF PTIN programs will assist Members in their efforts to improve their domestic food safety regimes. Member participation in the PTIN will also send a strong signal to domestic consumers and international customers that improving food safety is of high priority to their governments.

The APEC-wide Network will be housed on this web site, so trainers and practitioners can easily identify and communicate with one another to facilitate information sharing and leverage each Network member's unique expertise. For instance, this might be in the form of a searchable database of PTIN trainers and partners, which would include information such as name, affiliation/organization, member economy, email contact, areas of expertise, and links to any PTIN presentations.
