    An effective national food control system (NFCS) is essential for ensuring food safety for consumers and fair practices in food trade. An effective NFCS may apply different approaches, core elements, and components, as appropriate to the national circumstances. Thus, it is important to know where countries/national food administrations stand with regard to their food safety situation in the food chain in order to prioritize the areas that need improvement. In order to measure the “State” of food safety in the food chain, it is proposed to use a set of indicators. A Codex Alimentarius guideline entitled “Principles and guidelines for monitoring the performance of national food control systems” (CAC/GL 91-2017) describes a framework of planning, monitoring and system review steps for the performance monitoring of an effective NFCS. This guideline also recommends Members to establish food safety indicators for each desired outcome for an effective NFCS. In order to enhance the understanding of food safety indicators and build the capacity for ASEAN to develop a set of national food safety indicators, FAO RAP, held the regional workshops on capacity building in Food Safety Indicators from 19 to 21 November 2019. Over 30 participants from nine countries in the ASEAN region and resource persons from FAO, Belgium and regional food safety indicator pilot countries of Bhutan and Philippines attended the three-day workshop with the objective of enhancing the understanding of food safety indicators and their importance as well as of capacity to develop food safety indicators in the ASEAN member countries.
