World Accreditation Day 2020
The term food safety describes all practices that are used to keep our food safe. Food safety relies on all players involved in the supply of food, from farmers and producers to retailers and caterers. Accreditation improves food safety.
Standards and accreditation are referenced in the WTO TBT Agreement and play an important role in trade facilitation. The appropriate application of standards and accredited conformity assessment has the potential to resolve concerns raised on food safety to the benefit of both industrialized and developing economies.
Watch this short video on how accreditation improves food safety as we prepare to hold the annual World Accreditation Day celebrations on June 9th.
