FOSCOLLAB: Global platform for food safety data and information

Data Quality

The data and information linked together will come from already-established and reliable sources from WHO and could expand to other sources from international organizations such as the Food and Agriculture Organizations of the United Nations (FAO), the International Organization for Animal Health (OIE) and national governments.

Other measures are being taken to ensure that the contents of FOSCOLLAB are reliable. WHO will organize a working group of data quality experts that will research existing comparable data quality standards and systems used by other organizations, both public and private to recommend the most appropriate practices aligned with the goals of FOSCOLLAB.
