Traceability system builds food safety wall New law implemented more strictly
The new Food Safety Law clearly establishes a rigorous, whole-process supervision system. For all aspects of food production, distribution, catering services, and sales of edible agricultural products, the supervision of food additives, food-related products, and online food trading in food production and management processes are emerging The business format, as well as some process control management systems in the production and operation process, have been refined and improved, further emphasizing the main responsibility of the food production operator and the supervision responsibility of the supervisory authority.
The new law stipulates that food production and business operators shall establish a food safety traceability system in accordance with the provisions of this law to ensure food traceability. The state encourages food producers and operators to collect and retain production and operation information by means of information technology, and establishes a food safety traceability system. The Food and Drug Administration of the State Council, in conjunction with the State Council ’s agricultural administration and other relevant departments, has established a mechanism for traceability of food safety throughout the entire process.
Food traceability system gives consumers peace of mind
The food traceability system is related to multiple links from planting and breeding, production, distribution, sales and catering services. A qualified traceability system can always include the entire production and management process of food into effective monitoring, thereby effectively disposing of food that does not meet safety standards. To ensure food quality and safety. Taking food products as an example, through radio frequency technology and information coding, the product is traced on multiple platforms, and the development of software and hardware is used to show the traceability of multi-level product quality. It is for consumers to rest assured that the national regulatory authority can supervise rest assured. Consumers can scan the QR code to obtain information about the person in charge of the enterprise, phone, base, operation, fertilization, pesticide, processing, packaging, testing, and so on. Through such traceability, it actually helps the enterprise standardize and improve its management level, and also protects the company's brand and enhances the added value of the product. At the same time, this traceability also protects the consumer's right to know and wins consumers' Approved.
The significance is that once there is a problem with the food purchased by consumers, it can be traced back to the specific problem link, and the company or person responsible is clearly identified. In recent years, it has become one of the effective ways to ensure food safety in China.
In many European and American countries, it has been clearly stipulated that foods without traceability are prohibited from entering the market. 2015 年国际食品安全大会”上，北京食品科学研究院王守伟院长也指出：“随着贸易的全球化和食品生产的工业化，消费者如今已经越来越难直接对接生产者了。生产链和供应链的复杂化，使得消费者对获取终端产品的安全信息也变得愈发困难。对食品质量安全进行有效追踪和溯源，于是成为了一个极为迫切的全球性课题。” At the International Food Safety Conference 2015 held recently, Dean Wang Shouwei of the Beijing Academy of Food Science also pointed out: "With the globalization of trade and the industrialization of food production, it is becoming increasingly difficult for consumers to directly connect to production. The complexity of the production and supply chains has made it increasingly difficult for consumers to obtain safety information about end products. Effective tracking and tracing of food quality and safety has become an extremely urgent global issue. "
New "Food Safety Law" implemented to benefit traceable enterprises
, 新《食品安全法》强调责任落实。 Formal legislation on food traceability construction , the new "Food Safety Law" emphasizes the implementation of responsibilities. : 国家建立食品安全全程追溯制度。 Article 42 of the Food Safety Law is newly added : The state establishes a full-course traceability system for food safety. , 建立食品安全追溯体系 , 保证食品可追溯。 Food producers and operators shall, in accordance with the provisions of this Law , establish a food safety traceability system to ensure food traceability.
, 建立食品安全追溯体系。 The state encourages food producers and operators to use information technology to collect and retain production and operation information and establish a food safety traceability system. The Food and Drug Administration of the State Council, in conjunction with the State Council ’s agricultural administration and other relevant departments, has established a mechanism for traceability of food safety throughout the entire process. , 在多处修正并且明确了有关食品安全主体责任和各级政府及部委监管相关职能的分配。 At the same time , amendments and clarifications have been made on the responsibilities of the main body of food safety and the allocation of relevant functions of governments and ministries at all levels. Food traceability construction is expected to become an important part of the implementation of the new Food Safety Law during the 13th Five-Year Plan period.
, 后续发力顺势而为。 A lot of pilot work has been done in the early stage , and follow-up efforts have been made . , 早在 2009 年 , 食药监会同商务部、农业部就一同发布了《食品安全风险评估管理规定 ( 试行 ) 》 , 同年商务部印发《商务部办公厅财政部办公厅关于肉类蔬菜流通追溯体系建设试点指导意见的通知》 , 开始进行食品流通溯源建设试点工作 , 到 2015 年 , 已经公布了 58 个试点城市 ,43 个城市完成招标。 The Food Safety Law was revised and added to the traceability of food is not behind closed doors . As early as 2009 , the Food and Drug Administration, together with the Ministry of Commerce and the Ministry of Agriculture, issued the `` Food Safety Risk Assessment Management Regulations ( Trial ) '' , and the same year the Ministry of Commerce issued the `` Ministry of Commerce Office Finance Notice of the General Office of the Ministry of the People's Republic of China on the Guiding Opinions on the Pilot Construction of the Tracing System for the Distribution of Meat and Vegetables " began the pilot work on the construction of the traceability of food circulation . By 2015 , 58 pilot cities had been announced , and 43 cities had completed tendering. , 党中央国务院不断促进食品安全与溯源建设工作 , 包括先后下发了《国家食品安全监管体系“十二五”规划的通知》、《国务院关于促进市场公平竞争维护市场正常秩序的若干意见》等一系列文件。 At the same time , the Party Central Committee and the State Council have continuously promoted the construction of food safety and traceability , including the "Notice of the" 12th Five-Year Plan "of the National Food Safety Supervision System", and "Several Opinions of the State Council on Promoting Fair Competition in the Market and Maintaining Normal Market Order". Wait for a series of files. , 新食品安全法加入食品溯源 , 是对“十二五”先关工作的阶段性肯定 , 因此我们认为今后建设将持续加速 , 利好食品安全信息化和食品溯源先关企业。 Therefore , the addition of new food safety law to food traceability is a phased affirmation of the first twelfth five-year plan . Therefore, we believe that the construction will continue to accelerate in the future, which will benefit food safety informatization and food traceability first-priority enterprises.
Continue to focus on follow-up policy implementation. , 应继续关注出台的相关司法解释 , “十三五”规划纲要 , 食药监、商务部和农业部的“十三五”规划 , 相关标准制定以及地方法规等文件的出台 , 这些都可能成为加速食品溯源建设的重要催化剂。 After the new "Food Safety Law" is officially implemented , we should continue to pay attention to relevant judicial interpretations , the outline of the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan" , the "13th Five-Year Plan" of the Food and Drug Administration, the Ministry of Commerce and the Ministry of Agriculture , the formulation of relevant standards, and local The promulgation of regulations and other documents may become an important catalyst for accelerating the construction of food traceability.
