Moldova: Virtual Workshop on Good Regulatory Practice and Transparency in the Development of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures

December 8, 2020 - December 9, 2020

On December 8 and 9, CLDP will host a virtual workshop for officials from a variety of Moldova’s ministries involved in the creation of Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) regulations. Moldova is interested in increasing transparency in the development of SPS measures, particularly so that interested parties such as Moldovan farmers and agrobusinesses can provide input as Moldova develops those SPS rules and regulations. The workshop will also focus on Moldova’s request for assistance in increasing its notification of SPS measures to the World Trade Organization. CLDP along with experts from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs will discuss the U.S. approach to transparent and evidence-based rulemaking. Participants will also hear from representatives from Moldova’s Ministry of Agriculture and Regional Development, National Food Safety Agency, and Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure regarding existing transparency procedures. The workshop will provide an initial opportunity to develop recommendations for increasing transparency and stakeholder input in Moldova’s SPS rulemaking process.
