R&D has a critical role in food safety control. It provides information on risk assessment required by the WTO and tells how to tackle the food-borne diseases. the present R&D system need to improve according to the following principles.
First principle is “Comprehensive Approach”. In order to achieve the goal effectively, not only related Ministries but also research institutes and universities should work under the clear role statement.
Second principle is “Focused on the Problem Solving”. R&D on food safety should provide information and knowledge necessary for the decision-making and the intervention in the fields.
Third Principle is “Strategic Approach”. Research should conduct based on the comprehensive strategies and step-by-step approaches.
According to the above principles the present R&D system for food safety should change in the following ways.
First, food safety R&D management system should be built at the Pan government level. At the present, 7 Ministries and agencies are involved in the food safety R&D. Therefore, overlapped or mismatched projects are frequently conducted. In order to solve the problems, Food Safety Policy Commission should coordinate the Pan government food safety R&D strategies.
Second, the portfolio in the R&D should change to some extent. The research on the pathogen overlooked in comparison to chemical hazards such as pesticides should be reinforced. Basic research should also be reinforced necessary to achieve the information. (The rest is ommitted)
