Qatar Food Occurrence Database

The investment in data availability to support food regulatory measures is one of the key elements of the mandate of the Global Food Regulatory Science Society (GFoRSS). The availability and accuracy of occurrence data is crucial to support the development of sound and substantiated food regulatory decisions; data being the backbone of the risk analysis process. Similarly, the ability to contribute to the development and / or adaptation of international food standards requires the reliance on a robust set of occurrence data that reflect the local, national or regional environment and to support exposure assessment. Accessibility to occurrence data is yet a major challenge faced by the Arab region. Therefore, a priority area of investment in the field of food regulatory science was set for the region to ensure the availability of such data. This online portal was developed in this context, to allow the collection of Qatari food occurrence data through a systematic scanning and data mining of published articles, and from data providers in the country (competent authorities, control laboratories, research institutes, academic institutions, etc.). It is expected that this database constitutes the repository of food occurrence data for the Qatar, enabling its contribution to the Arab Food Occurrence Database, which in turn will potentially contribute to the GEMS Food database and other international calls for data in support of international food standard setting.
