      中国和欧盟4月6日在北京举办高级别国际食品安全研讨会,会议主题为“进口食品认证”。此次研讨会分析了如何将食品认证应用到风险控制和食品造假行为的防范之中,同时也讨论了食品认证在国际食品贸易中发挥的作用。与会者共聚一堂,一同探究如何利用食品认证,让中国和欧盟成员国家的消费者真正受益。

        中国国家质量监督检验检疫总局进出口食品安全局副局长毕克新先生、国际食品法典委员会(负责制定国际食品标准的政府间机构)主席Awilo Ochieng Pernet女士,以及欧盟委员会健康与食品安全理事会食品链(利害关系人与国际关系)部门主任Michael Scannell在研讨会上发言。

        研讨会结束之后,国家质量监督检验检疫总局与欧盟委员会就认证问题进行了双边会谈。

        会谈结束之后,欧盟驻中国和蒙古代表团卫生与食品安全事务公使衔参赞华杰鸿(Jérôme Lepeintre)表示:“中国在食品安全问题上取得了惊人的进展。此次研讨会是一个绝好的机会,可以让双方共同讨论食品认证在保护中国消费者和防范食品造假行为中发挥的作用。”

        食品安全认证与全球食品贸易

        欧盟是世界上最大的农产品出口地区,在2015年9月至2016年10月之间,欧盟的农产品出口量已达1299亿欧元(约9353亿人民币),创下历史新高。中国则是欧盟出口食品发展最快的市场,2015年的年增长率高达39%;同年,欧盟出口到中国的农产品总价值超过100亿欧元(约720亿人民币),这意味着中国已成为欧洲食品的第二大市场,仅次于美国。对于欧盟国家和中国的消费者来说,食品安全是他们首要考虑的问题,政府可以将食品认证作为一种工具,管控食品安全风险,打击食品造假行为。

      中国-欧盟食品安全监管合作

        此次研讨会是“中国-欧盟食品安全监管合作”项目的一部分。该项目由欧盟提供资助,旨在促进监管机构的对话,通过汇集欧盟、欧盟成员国家、欧洲行业的代表与中国监管机构(包括国家质量监督检验检疫总局、国家食品药品监督管理总局和国家卫生和计划生育委员会)的主要领导,分享优秀的国际实践经验。按计划,未来十八个月内还将再举行三次研讨会,同时也会组织中国高级官员到欧盟进行两次实地参访。
A high-level international food safety seminar was held in Beijing on Thursday, 6 April, on the theme of “certification of imported food products”. The seminar examined how certification can be used as a tool to control risks and prevent food fraud, as well as the role of certification in the international trade of food. Participants at the seminar were able to explore how certification is used to benefit consumers in both the People’s Republic of China and in the European Union Member States.

Mr Bi Kexin, Director General of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the PRC (AQSIQ) spoke at the event, along with Ms Awilo Ochieng Pernet, the Chairperson of the Codex Alimentarius Commission, an intergovernmental body responsible for setting international food standards, and Mr Michael Scannell, the European Commission’s Director of Food Chain: Stakeholders and International Relations in the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety.

The seminar was followed by bilateral discussions on certification between AQSIQ and the European Commission.

After the event, Mr Jérôme Lepeintre, Minister-Counsellor for Health and Food Safety at the Delegation of the European Union to China and Mongolia, stated “China is making incredible progress in enhancing food safety, and this seminar was an ideal opportunity to discuss the role that certification plays in protecting Chinese consumers and preventing food fraud.”

Food safety certification and the global food trade

The European Union is the largest agri-food exporter in the world, with exports reaching a record €129.9 billion (935.3 billion RMB) between September 2015 and October 2016. China is the fastest-growing market for EU food products, with a 39% annual growth rate in 2015. EU agri-food exports to China were worth over €10 billion (72 billion RMB) in 2015, meaning that China is already the second-largest market for European food after the USA. Food safety is a priority for consumers in both the European Union and in China, and certification is one tool used by governments to control food safety risks and fight food fraud.

EU-China Cooperation on Food Safety Regulation

The seminar was held as part of the “EU-China Cooperation on Food Safety Regulation” project, an EU-funded project that encourages regulatory dialogue and the sharing of international best practices by bringing together representatives of the EU, EU Member States and European industry with key figures from the PRC regulatory agencies, including AQSIQ, the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) and the National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC). Three further seminars are planned to take place over the next 18 months, along with two study visits to the European Union involving senior PRC officials.
