The first meeting of the working group for the implementation of the Rapid SPS Assessment Tool (R-SAT) in Cameroon took place on 30 September 2021 in Yaoundé, where a timetable and next steps were agreed upon. R-SAT has been developed by COLEACP to assist competent authorities, in consultation with key public and private sector stakeholders, to assess the status and functioning of SPS systems.
COLEACP would like to thank the Director of the Department of Regulation and Quality Control of Agricultural Products and Inputs (DRCQ) for his availability and support, as well as all the DRCQ staff involved in the preparation of this session. The meeting was a success, particularly due to the quality of representatives of the different state and private structures.
The next step is an evaluation of the SPS system for the mango sector (fresh and processed), using R-SAT in the field.
This activity is supported by the Fit For Market SPS programme, implemented by COLEACP within the Framework of Development Cooperation between the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and the European Union.
