Abu Dhabi Authority Strengthens Food Security with New Sampling Resolution for Food and Fodder

The Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority (ADAFSA) has recently issued a resolution aimed at meticulously regulating the sampling procedures for food and fodder inspection and control across Abu Dhabi. Directed by His Excellency Saeed Al Bahri Salem Al Ameri, Director General of ADAFSA, the resolution categorizes samples into two distinct types based on specific circumstances and desired outcomes.

The first category includes objective samples collected for routine monitoring, data compilation, or conformity assessment. These samples serve to maintain consistent quality standards and regulatory compliance. In contrast, the second category encompasses selective samples taken in response to observed violations or to provide representative units for thorough laboratory scrutiny.

Detailing stringent protocols, the resolution specifies appropriate packaging and tools for sampling to ensure suitability for subsequent chemical or bacteriological analysis. It sets forth clear guidelines on determining sample size, procedures for transporting and storing samples, and provisions for re-analysis upon request or with valid technical justifications.

Emphasizing the integrity of sampling processes, ADAFSA mandates random or selective sampling with strict precautions against contamination or alteration of sample properties. Adequate sample sizes are stipulated to facilitate comprehensive laboratory testing, with samples typically divided into two parts—one sent for laboratory analysis and the other retained by the facility for reference.

Crucially, the resolution affirms the rights of food establishments to request re-analysis if initial results are deemed unsatisfactory. It empowers ADAFSA to conduct additional sampling and re-examinations when warranted by technical grounds, with analyses conducted at neutral, accredited laboratories at the establishment's expense, ensuring impartial outcomes.

ADAFSA underscores that this resolution reflects its commitment to updating legislative frameworks supporting its operational mandate. It aims to safeguard the safety and quality of food and fodder across the entire supply chain, aligning with health, environmental, and technical standards in the UAE. By enhancing food security measures, ADAFSA seeks to bolster consumer confidence, promote fair trade practices, and uphold public and animal health.

This regulatory initiative forms part of a broader strategy to modernize Abu Dhabi's food security framework, ensuring access to safe, high-quality food that meets international benchmarks. ADAFSA's proactive approach underscores its dedication to continuous improvement and alignment with global best practices in food safety and agricultural management.
