The Food Safety Department provides sanitary certification of export products attesting to their safety for consumption based on the requirements of the importing country. This certification is based on a system of inspections, audits and testing.
HACCP certification is another service provided by the Food Safety Department to food processing facilities; HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) is an internationally recognized preventative risk management system for safety in food processing. HACCP certification of certain commodity types is a pre-requisite for sanitary certification.
Other certification systems in the process of development with collaborating agencies include Good Agricultural Practices for agricultural farms, and On-farm food safety for aquaculture farms.
