Abstract

The purpose of this essay is to contribute to a reflective analysis about the international requirements in food safety and to determine the role that the Chilean food safety regulations should perform for the future development of their beef exports sector. The specific objectives are to present a general diagnosis about the efficiency, quality, and food safety of the Chilean beef production; to analyze Chilean policies and regulations on animal health and food safety; to study the food safety requirements of the main markets such as the United States, the European Union and Japan; to investigate Chile’s fulfillment of these requirements; and to determine food safety policy implications for Chilean beef exports. Considering how animal health and food safety concerns affect the international trade of bovine meat products and the context of the current trade relationships between Chile and these markets, the main conclusion of this study is that the Chilean food safety and animal health regulations must be improved, principally, in the application of proper hygiene and manufacturing practices, the implementation of traceability systems, and in residue control and quality assurance programs based on the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point system.
