    A Joint FAO/WHO Expert Consultation on the Application of Risk Analysis to Food Standards Issues was held at WHO Headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland from 13 to 17 March 1995. Participants included experts in food safety and risk analysis, representatives of international organizations and observers from relevant Codex Committees. The Consultation was convened at the request of the 41st Session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) Executive Committee which wished to promote consistency and tr ansparency in the establishment of Codex standards, guidelines and recommendations. The main objective was to provide FAO, WHO and CAC as well as member countries with advice on practical approaches for the application of risk analysis to food standards issues To accomplish this task, the Consultation first agreed on a number of definitions for food safety risk analysis. In doing so, the Consultation agreed upon a model for risk assessment which consists of four components: (1) hazard ident ification, (2) hazard characterization, (3) exposure assessment, and (4) risk characterization. In elaborating on this model, the Consultation limited its considerations to biological and chemical agents in or on food.

    Food safety is increasingly becoming a global challenge both by virtue of its public health impact as well as its economic and political implications. Malaysia has established the National Food Safety and Nutrition Council in 2001, a multi- sectoral forum to set clear policies and strategies for the continuous improvement of the food safety programme. This Council is chaired by the Honorable Minister of Health and formulates policy on food safety and nutrition, which will be integrated, with oth er national policies to address, amongst others, health, economic and trade issues. The National Food Safety Policy was formulated in 2002 and it aims at providing direction to all stakeholders in establishing and implementing food safety measures, through collaborative efforts to safeguard human health. To effectively implement the National Food Safety Policy in a more coordinated and integrated manner, a National Plan of Action on Food Safety had also been formulated in 2002. The action plan c learly defines the role of each stakeholder and its successful implementation will depend on the support and commitment of all the relevant government agencies and stakeholders.
