Professionals attending the seminar on the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integrated mechanism of food safety risk control suggested that the three sides should unify related local governmental regulations and standards on food safety.

The attending professionals came from institutions including the China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment (CFSA), Renmin University, Tsinghua University, Central University of Finance and Economics, Tianjin University of Finance and Economics, and Hebei University of Economics and Business.

The seminar aims at specifying the target audience and improving the efficiency of food safety monitoring. In addition, the seminar serves to break the geographic limitations and helps to promote communication among each element.

Han Dayuan, deputy director of the Center for Coordination and Innovation of Food Safety Governance, and Tian Xuebin, deputy director of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Integrated Development and Innovation Center, signed a cooperation agreement on the innovative integration on food safety management.

Wang Liming, director of the Center for Coordination and Innovation of Food Safety Governance, remarked that food safety is a regional, national and global issue. The integration and cooperation in different regions, disciplines and industries is extremely important for food safety management and is an effective measure to improve the domestic food safety environment.

Apart from constructing a complete Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei food safety integrated management mechanism, the participating professionals thought an administrative mechanism of food safety risk control is expected to be established.

The administrative mechanism should include joint conferences participated by mayors and officials from the Food Safety Commission and the China Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a special institution on Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei's food safety management; a proposal on the implementation of food safety risk control; an information sharing system; and a talent attracting system.

In addition, the professionals thought a law enforcement coordination mechanism should be established. Furthermore, food safety risk control should be included into the overall blueprint of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integrated development.
