International Portal on Food Safety, Animal & Plant Health (IPFSAPH)

Summary
Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) issues have traditionally been addressed on a sector-by-sector basis. This has typically meant looking at food safety or animal health or plant health issues separately. With increasing economic inter-dependence, international trade and travel, and with the use of novel production and processing technologies, a new, multi-disciplinary approach is needed. The portal responds to this by providing a single access point for the wide range of official, dispersed information related to sanitary and phytosanitary measures. FAO article on the portal
