On December 10, 2012 the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the New Zealand Government signed an agreement in which the FDA recognizes New Zealand’s food safety systems to be comparable to its own. The Food Safety Systems Recognition Arrangement was signed at a meeting in Washington DC by delegations from the NZ Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) and FDA. It covers all foods and animal feeds regulated by the FDA, including nutritional supplements such as those created by Xtend-Life. History was made that day-never before has the FDA recognized the food safety system of a foreign country. On the photo: Ministry for Primary Industries Deputy Director General Standards Carol Barnao (left) and US Food and Drug Administration Deputy Commissioner for Food Michael R. Taylor sign a systems recognition agreement at a meeting in Washington DC. Why is such an agreement so momentous? It’s simply not possible for a country’s border control to scrutinize every food product brought into the country, or to inspect the premises of every foreign manufacturer. So how do countries such as the US and NZ more optimally ensure the safety of imported foods? Answer: By strengthening the global food safety net through closer collaboration with regulators around the world
