    On 9 December 2015 a webinar was jointly organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to discuss the effective use of data on the databases hosted by three organizations. Through six presentations delivered by speakers from Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia, Spain, Mexico and Canada, participants recognized that the information and data shared on the respective databases are the critical source of information for monitoring the latest approvals in various countries thus contribute to the understanding of the global biosafety situations. In addition to the core data themselves, technical materials shared on the databases, including the Codex guidelines (FAO), BCH National Reports (CBD) and Consensus documents (OECD) were often found useful for risk managers in their decision making process. The usefulness of the up-to-date contact informatio n of the competent authorities was highlighted as it stimulates effective and timely communication regarding the information/data shared by countries.

    The scope of the Webinar is strictly technical, inviting primarily technical officers from various governmental agencies who are tasked to work with international databases on biosafety. As the format of the Webinar is best suitable to have interactive discussions, the Webinar has been expected to play a role to facilitate inter-sectoral forum for national participants for their continuous communication. Regulatory decisions and political discussions have been excluded from the scope of the Webi nar as these issues need to be addressed with the respective governing bodies.
