Remote inspection practices in food safety for improved trade

This PPG aims to identify current practices applied by regulators regarding the conduct of remote inspections of food business operators in their jurisdiction to ensure enforcement functions without risking human health. These types of inspection practices have received more attention due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of this work, the executing agency will collaborate with regulators actively participating in the Codex Committee on Food Import and Export Inspection and Certification Systems (CCFICS) to share experience and information gained through the different activities. Finally, the project preparation grant will also allow the identification of a pilot country (or countries) where best practices in applying remote food safety inspection practices could be introduced or further improved.
