IN PRACTICE: MOROCCO
We have been supporting the Office National de Sécurité Sanitaire des Produits Alimentaires (ONSSA) and agri-food sector to introduce the ePhyto Solution. The project team, including ONSSA experts, carried out a full business process analysis, facilitated training in ePhyto programming for ONSSA officials with the UN ICC, and supported technical preparations for the pilot. With the project’s focus on the importance of knowledge exchange and international best practice, an ePhyto expert from the United States travelled to Morocco to share insights on introducing ePhyto, and the Alliance organised a technical visit for Moroccan government and agri-food industry representatives to the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands to glean lessons in how to operationalise ePhyto and e-signature procedures.
The first international exchange of ePhytos between Morocco and the United States took place in March 2020, making Morocco one of the first African countries to fully integrate ePhyto into their national trade system.
