Introduction

  • Two BIOINFORMATICS based solutions dealing with integrated information and knowledge management specifically managing BIOSECURITY issues.
  • Relational Database Management System (RDMS) - Food & Plant
  • Integrated Livestock Management System (ILMS) - Livestock

Purpose

  • Monitoring and control of movement of plants/livestock
  • The creation of new policies
  • Research & Development
  • Agropolitan (Biodiversity university)
  • Conform to international food safety regulations
    • International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs)
    • International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC)
    • Office International des Epizooties
  • Conform to WTO's
    • Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement (SPS)
    • Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade
  • Creating a complete auditable system for the total supply chain from source to supermarket

Present Situation

  • Permit/Certificates issued not recorded
    Receiving country can't verify source/approvals for plant, livestock and food from Malaysia
  • Manual Data Collections
    No records of approvals stored anywhere
  • Non-compliance of regulatory standards agreed to at WTO level
    Example of non-compliance includes: IPPC, OIE, WTO SPS and TBT agreements
  • No 'Common' interstate/cross borders movement of livestock
    Difficult to control diseases spreading etc

Relational Database Management System (RDMS)

  • Import and export certification activities
  • Pest/disease status reporting
  • Recording laboratory activities
  • Recording emergency responses and pest eradication activities
  • Managing post entry quarantine
  • Tracking the movement of plant and food derived from plant items

Integrated Livestock Management System (ILMS)

  • From farm to the shelf
  • Can capture all relevant data including
    • Animal history
    • Source of origin (local form/foreign country/farm) - pedigree
    • Health status
    • Advanced animal tracking systems - using electronic tags (EID) coupled with visual tags and bar codes for tracking of animal products
  • Real time view of Certification records

Benefits

  • Connect all the entry/exit points, regional or state offices with the Head Office
  • Establish direct links with all technical support agencies (e.g. research institutes, agricultural universities, veterinary colleges and other government departments); accredited suppliers or services (private veterinary clinics, plant pest diagnostic laboratories etc) to quickly transfer information and share knowledge.
  • Effective monitoring and control of disease
  • Research & Development
  • Promote e-government by enabling the general public access to relevant biosecurity information and enable importers and exporters to apply for certificates on-line.
  • Serve as a learning resource for all employees - knowledge management system
  • Facilitate information exchange with trading partners and other organizations both within and outside the country.
  • Smooth and controlled applications/approvals

Why Malaysia?

  • Halal hub!
  • Enabling the country to swiftly contain any disease outbreaks
  • Enabling all relevant 'approving' authorities to play their roles (all government agencies involved 'linked')
  • Establish a database of information regarding plant and animal health and food safety standards, movement of plants/livestock.

Collaboration between BioNet International Sdn. Bhd. and Telemont Group

Bio-Security covers a wide range of area and it presents unique challenges for producers. Bio-Security in short focuses several vital areas such as risk assessment, planning/strategizing, response to threats and mitigation measures. However there are some basic and practical security measures that can be monitored even at the farm level. In addition to prevention, early identification and detection is critical to minimize damage should an event occur.

General Bio-Security Guidance
  • Risk assessment on the entire farm
  • Map the entire operation and document the assets
  • Prepare for a response to a potential plant Bio-Security problem or other emergency
  • Identify activities to help mitigate vulnerability to theft, vandalism or a Bio-Security event whether intentional or unintentional
BioNet International Sdn Bhd provide application of biosensor as daily monitoring tool, incorporated to conform to the International Regulations.
