Inventory among DEMETER Stakeholders on EMERGING RISKS Systems

  1. 1. Inventory among DEMETER stakeholders on EMERGING RISK systems Demeter: DEtermination and METrics of Emerging Risks 24 November 2017, Dr. Hans Marvin
  2. 2. Terminology: emerging food risks 2  Emerging risk: “A risk resulting from a newly identified hazard to which a significant exposure may occur, or from an unexpected new or increased significant exposure and/or susceptibility to a known hazard.” (EFSA, 2007)  Emerging issue: “An issue that could be a food or feed safety risk that has very recently been identified and merits further investigation, and for the information collected is still too limited to be able to assess whether it meets the requirements of an emerging risk. Thus, emerging issues are identified at the beginning of the emerging risks identification process as subjects that merit further investigation and additional data collection. Emerging issues can include specific issues (e.g. a specific chemical substance or pathogen, or a specific susceptible group of the population), as well as general issues, called drivers (e.g. climate change), that could result in emerging risks.” (Costa et al., 2016)
  3. 3. Global consultative stakeholder group 3
  4. 4. FPDI (USA)  Has developed various tools, examples include:  FoodShield: web-based collaboration platform (document centers, on-line meetings, surveys, news feeds, calendars, discussion forums)  FIDES: “comprehensive, systematic process for monitoring potential food threats and identifying adverse food events”  Focus is on food safety threats and catastrophes  Various data sources are gathered, but skilled user input is still required 4
  5. 5. 5
  6. 6. 6
  7. 7. FAO [EMPRES]  System: EMPRES Food Safety (Emergency Prevention System), established in 2009 as an extension of EMPRES (plant+animal health)  EMPRES Food Safety collaborates with INFOSAN  The main aim of EMPRES Food Safety is to prevent and control food safety risks. Central to this is the early detection, early warning and rapid response to food safety emergencies at global, regional and local levels.  A primary objective is to leverage FAO’s comparative advantage and establish an international programme that enables horizon scanning to identify emerging food safety hazards, provide guidance to countries on what to watch out for, how to prevent emerging food safety risks and facilitate preparedness to react in a timely manner. 7
  8. 8. 8
  9. 9. FSA (UK)  Is working on a new ‘Strategic Surveillance approach’ for emerging risks  Has started ‘pilot studies’ to demonstrate proof of concept of the new approach: to commission work from various stakeholders so the FSA can learn how a wide selection of data providers/analysts address the two scenarios given systems, processes and information already available to them.  Report on these pilot studies is expected soon 9
  10. 10. FSA ‘Surveillance High Level Operating Model’ 10
  11. 11. DAWR (AU)  System: IBIS (International Biosecurity Intelligence System)  Current version is no longer publicly accessible  Online intelligence gathering and analysis platform: 24/7 automated web-crawler/horizon scanner  Not specifically for food safety, but:  Customizable to different types of topics (biosecurity, human health, etc.), additional features can be added, including levels of access  Data is automatically analyzed with artificial intelligence software to reduce noise 11
  12. 12. IBIS (old version): articles (i.e. notices) 12
  13. 13. IBIS (old version): issues (aggregated articles) 13
