As of today, CPM Consulting in partnership with the Center for Assistance to Public Authorities will be assisting Moldova’s National Food Safety Agency (ANSA) to undertake a comprehensive assessment of its legal and regulatory gaps, as well as its institutional and ICT needs. Through this project, which is funded by World Bank, we will provide our support and expertise with the objective of boosting Moldova’s exports of agricultural products to the EU market.
The project will aim to identify gaps and any non-conformities in Moldova’s national food safety legislation (both horizontal and vertical), that hinder exports of Moldovan fresh products to the EU market. In addition, constraints in the food safety regulations that lead to increased administrative burden and excessive compliance costs for the private sector will be addressed with the aim to ensure increased market competitiveness of Moldova’s agricultural products.
CPM Consulting will also work closely with ANSA to prepare the ground for introducing the IT-based Food Safety Information Management System – e-ANSA – which will streamline ANSA’s business processes and workflows. As part of this switch to an IT-based system, we will also develop the concept of a one-stop shop for issuing all export-related documentation for the targeted products.
