 MoPH Organizes Workshops on New Food Safety System By Iman Abdalla - April 06, 2022


The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) organized several workshops on the electronic registration system, which is one of the requirements of the first stage of the new electronic food safety system, which will be launched soon. The workshops aimed at familiarizing attendees and explaining registration steps.

This workshop represented a practical application of the MoPH efforts to streamline registration process in the electronic management system, which will accordingly reflect on improving the compliance of establishments and products with health requirements and specifications.

Director of the Food Safety and Environmental Health Department at the Ministry Wassan Abdullah Al Baker said that the Food Safety Department seeks to activate the digitization plan for registration of food establishments and products through a new electronic platform; a key requirement for the implementation of an electronic control system that includes the registration of all relevant information on food establishments as well as their products.

"This step is achieved through implementing the health policy for food safety and the authority vested in the MoPH by virtue of Law No. 8 of 1990 on human food control regulation. The new electronic registration system is increasingly crucial as it aims to cover the largest number of food establishments in the State of Qatar, to ensure that health standards of food establishments and products safety conform with the World Health Organization (WHO) health standards. It also comes in line with the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and the Qatar Vision 2030," Al Baker added.

The Food Safety and Environmental Health Department, MoPH, will be launching the Food Safety Electronic System in collaboration with the Information Systems Department and the system supplier. This system is one of the key national projects to manage the food control process in Qatar through a well-controlled system that includes three integrated electronic systems to control imported food, local food and laboratory analysis according to risk analysis methods to ensure the highest level of food safety according to international best practices in this area.
