EU Consultation

Luc Vandebon, Charge d' Affairs of the European Community (speaking) said in his message during the final meeting on Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) on February 02, 2006, Thursday at the Dusit Hotel, that HACCP simply means that the product should be safe for human consumption. He also said that the EU market comprising of 25 member-states is close to 450 million. The Philippines is an accredited trading partner of the Community and could cash in from their huge demand for fish and other fishery products. However, local exporters
must first comply with the stringent quality and safety requirments of the EU. The Philippines and the EU are currently collaborating in upgrading the capability of BFAR's inspection facilities and services in implementing HACCP, a system which identifies, evaluates and controls hazards which are significant for food safety.

Sarmiento, Jr.
