CNCA Closing Audit Meeting

A team from China concluded the compliance audit for 15 birds nest processing plants before they are allowed to export their products to China yesterday. The result will be make known officially within 60 working days.

During the closing yesterday CNCA said that they had conducted the audits over two weeks on the plants in Selangor, Sarawak, Pahang, Melaka, Johor, Penang and Kedah. Some plants are good and some are not so good and need major improvement.

The delegation comprised experts from China's Certification and Accreditation Administration (CNCA), China Entry Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau (CIQ) and Chinese Academy of Inspection and Quarantine (CAIQ), and was led by CNCA deputy director-general, Li Chunguang.

The Chinese authorities wanted to ensure the processing plants have good traceability and food safety system before they were allowed to export their products to the republic.

Last week during the meeting, Minister of Agriculture Datuk Noh said Malaysia and China had been holding negotiations to enable re-export of birds nest to China which culminated in the Cabinet agreeing to allow the Chinese authorities to audit the plants.

He added that Malaysia was the first country the delegation was visiting to to do the audits and this was possible because of the close ties between the two countries.
