Title: ACCREDITATION IN FOOD SECTOR Emerging Scenario


1
ACCREDITATIONIN FOOD SECTOREmerging Scenario
  • Anil Jauhri
  • Director (NABCB)
  • QUALITY COUNCIL OF INDIA
  • New Delhi

2
INTERNATIONAL SCENARIO
  • International trade governed by WTO agreements
  • Rules for Standards and Conformity laid down in
    TBT/SPS agreements
  • Regulations on health and safety grounds Food
    sector highly regulated standards enforced by
    law product requirements, system approach
    GMP/GHP/HACCP
  • Voluntary regime ISO 9000/22000, number of
    retail driven initiatives in Europe/USA BRC,
    IFS, SQF, GFSI etc
  • Indian food industry to prepare for both

3
IMPLICATIONS
  • Common to both regimes - Requirements
    (Regulations/standards) prescribed to be
    complied with need for checking compliance
  • Checking compliance to prescribed standards
    conformity assessment inspection, testing,
    certification
  • Confidence in conformity assessment
  • International acceptability for facilitating
    trade - Need for recognition of
    inspection/testing/ certification across borders
  • Accomplished through accreditation

4
WTO AGREEMENTS
  • SPS Agreement - Equivalence-allows use of
    different standards different inspection
    methods for same level of protection-encourages
    members to enter into bilateral/multilateral
    recognition agreements (Article 4)
  • TBT Agreement - Mutual recognition of conformity
    assessment in other countries Accreditation
    (Article 6)

5
PROVISION IN TBT AGREEMENT
  • Members shall ensure, whenever possible, that
    results of conformity assessment procedures in
    other Members are acceptedadequate and enduring
    technical competence of the relevant conformity
    assessment bodies in the exporting Member, so
    that confidence in the continued reliability of
    their conformity assessment results can exist
    in this regard, verified compliance, for instance
    through accreditation, with relevant guides or
    recommendations issued by international
    standardizing bodies shall be taken into account
    as an indication of adequate technical
    competence
  • Article 6

6
ACCREDITATION
  • Third-party attestation related to a conformity
    assessment body conveying formal demonstration of
    its competence to carry out specific conformity
    assessment tasks ISO 17000
  • Conformity assessment bodies Certification
    bodies/ Inspection bodies/Labs
  • QCI responsible for national accreditation
    structure
  • International Accreditation Forum (IAF) Pacific
    Accreditation Cooperation (PAC) - NABCB member
    from India
  • International Laboratory Accreditation
    Cooperation (ILAC) Asia Pacific Laboratory
    Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC) - NABL member
    from India
  • Basis of accreditation generally international
    standards on conformity assessment developed by
    ISO/ IAF or ILAC guidance documents

7
ACCREDITATION STANDARDS
  • ISO CASCO - ISO's policy development committee on
    conformity assessment
  • ISO 17021 Requirements for Management Systems CBs
  • ISO 22003 Requirements for CBs for FSMS - basis
    for operation of CBs as well as their
    accreditation cross refers to ISO 17021
  • ISO 17025 Requirements for Testing labs
  • ISO Guide 65 Requirements for Product CBs
    covers Products, Process or Service certification
  • ISO 17020 Requirements for Inspection Bodies

8
CODEX STANDARDS
  • Codex Committee on Food Inspection
    Certification (CCFICS)
  • CAC/GL 20 Principles for Food Import and Export
    Certification and Inspection
  • CAC/GL 26 Design, Operation, Assessment and
    Accreditation of Food Import and Export
    Inspection and Certification Systems
  • CAC/GL 27 Guidelines for the Assessment of the
    Competence of Testing Laboratories Involved in
    the Import and Export Control of Foods
  • CAC/GL 28 Food Control Laboratory Management
    Recommendations
  • CAC/GL 34 Judgement of Equivalence Agreements
    Regarding Food Imports and Export Inspection and
    Certification Systems
  • New subject National Food Control Systems

9
EMERGING REGIME
  • Regulatory regime Regulatory bodies
    increasingly seeking accredited CABs more
    prevalent in non-food sectors growing in food -
    e.g. HACCP accreditation in Australia on
    Victorian Meat Authoritys request in 1997 UK
    DEFRA to use accredited micro labs
  • Voluntary standards market driven - ISO 9001,
    ISO 22000 - generally retail industry driven
    Globalgap, GFSI, SQF prescribe accreditation to
    international standards as requirement for CBs
    and Labs
  • EC Regulation legislation on accreditation in
    July 2008 wef 1 Jan 2010 single national
    accreditation body impact worldwide

10
Emerging Structure
  • Government
  • (to enact legislation)
  • Regulatory Bodies may be sector specific like
    Food, Drugs
  • (to enforce the law)
  • Accreditation Body
  • (technical competence of CABs)
  • Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs)
  • (support regulation voluntary
    certification/quality assurance)
  • Manufacturers and Service providers
  • Common man recipient of goods and services

11
INDIAN SCENARIO
  • Integrated food law FSSA, 2006
  • Prescribes NABL accreditation for food labs
    (Section 43)
  • Provision for food safety audit agencies (Section
    44)
  • To use NABCB accredited bodies for MMPO
  • Cognizance of voluntary certification draft
    licensing rules
  • QCI framing regulations for notifying testing/
    referral labs - recognizing certification/
    inspection bodies based on accreditation
  • Voluntary initiatives CWG initiative for
    eateries NABCB accredited certification bodies
    currently 3 CBs approved

12

    ISO 22000
  • MFPI financial assistance for HACCP
    implementation NABCB accredited certification
  • Others

    medical labs Dec 2008
  • Sum up India has world class accreditation
    infrastructure

16
BENEFITS OF ACCREDITATION
  • Recognition of certification/inspection/ testing
    by Indian conformity assessment bodies in other
    countries NABCB signatory to IAF MLA on QMS
    certification NABL signatory to ILAC MLA
    certificates/test reports issued by accredited
    CABs accepted worldwide
  • Reduces risk for government, business and
    customers - ensures through regular surveillance
    that Conformity assessment bodies are both
    independent and competent ensure AB logo on
    your certificates
  • Lower cost of accreditation in turn lower cost
    of certification/inspection/testing for industry
    enhances competitiveness
