ing a strong food safety culture within
their agency or company,” adds Corby.
“That culture also impacts how regulators and industry then interact with each
other. This movement may continue
down the continuum, leading to more
uniform food safety policies, novel
technology development based on
standardized practices and regulations,
and increased traceability and recall effectiveness due to increased industry/
regulatory communication and collaboration.” n

Upcoming Opportunities to Participate in PwCP
Be a part of this important industry-regulator food safety and food defense
dialogue! The goal of the 2020 PwCP sessions will be to develop consensus
and determine how all stakeholders will proceed on some key topics identified
during the 2018–2019 sessions. The consensus-based best practices derived
from these sessions will then be shared with food safety stakeholders.
