    Meeting
    Sharing information on national experiences in the general field of risk management 2002
    The subject of risk management is a broad one; the discussion group on "Sharing information on national experiences in the general field of risk management" is to discuss two specific topics in detail: "Reduction in foodborne hazards, including microbiological and others, with emphasis on emerging hazards" and "Integrated approaches to the management of food safety throughout the food chain". I would like to go beyond that in introducing the discussion group debates by touching on the various as pects of this subject and the ways in which risk managers and policy makers can approach it.

    As Designated National Authority on Food Safety of Liberia, our aim is to increase public awareness of the risks of food poisoning and the preventive measures that can be taking throughout the food chain And also to protect the health of people consuming Liberian food at home or abroad whilst helping to maintain and enhance the reputation of its food related industries. Our constraint is the lack of Food Analytical Laboratory in Liberia for food quality control due to the war. Food saf ety and the protection of the health of consumers have become international issues, forcing most developed countries to exam how they ensure the safety of their food supply. As we gathered in this workshop we would like to state here that our role to integrated approaches to the management of food safety throughout the food chain is to: Educate consumers and communicate risks, Convince industry that it owes the responsibility to produce and provide safe food. Develop an effective inspection service from farm to fork. Get every food business to recognize the importance of food safety and to make it our integral part of their business.

    Multicriteria-Based Ranking for Risk Management of Food-Borne Parasites. Microbiological Risk Assessment Series (MRA) 23 2014
    Also available in:

    Infectious diseases caused by food-borne parasites have not received the same level of attention as other food-borne biological and chemical hazards. Nevertheless, they cause a high burden of disease in humans, may have prolonged, severe, and sometimes fatal outcomes, and result in considerable hardship in terms of food safety, security, quality of life, and negative impacts on livelihoods. The transmission routes for food-borne parasites are diverse. They can be transmitted by ingesting fresh o r processed foods that have been contaminated via the environment, by animals or people. Additionally, notification to public health authorities is not compulsory for most parasitic diseases, so official reports do not capture the true prevalence or incidence of the diseases, as much underreporting occurs. This report presents the results of a global ranking of food-borne parasites from a food safety perspective. It also provides an overview of the current status of knowledge of the ranked paras ites in food and their public health and trade impact, and provides advice and guidance on the parasite-commodity combinations of particular concern, the issues that need to be addressed by risk managers, and the risk management options available to them. It documents the ranking process used to facilitate its adoption at regional, national, or local levels. This volume and others in this Microbiological Risk Assessment Series contain information that is useful to both risk assessors and risk ma nagers, the Codex Alimentarius Commission, governments and regulatory agencies, food producers and processers and other institutions or individuals with an interest in foodborne parasites and their impact on food safety, public health and livelihoods.
