Food Safety Act Consultations

The Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Department of Health (DOH) are currently in the process of finalizing the Implementing Rules and Regulations of the RA 10611 or also known as the Food Safety Act of 2013.

The Act provides the legal framework for strengthening the food safety regulation in the country and provides the principles for developing and implementing regulations for safe food. It also delineates the mandates of government agencies involved in food safety and provides the coordinating mechanism and programs for the implementation of these mandates.

In line with this, nationwide public consultations on the proposed draft IRR of the Food Safety Act will be held as follows:


      • May 15, 2014 in Luzon (9:00am-12nn, at the Duque Hall, DOH Compound Tayuman Manila);
      • May 28, 2014 in Visayas Region (Venue is to be arranged); and
      • May 30, 2014 in Mindanao Region (Venue is to be arranged).


The stakeholders are requested to inform the Policy Research Service of their participation to the said consultations through tel. no. 926-7439 or through email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
