Six laboratories in three provincial centres may no longer have to wait for results of testing for export food products from Port Moresby in the future, following the completion of a training programme to assist laboratories to prepare for international accreditation. When the laboratories attain international accreditation, they will be recognised internationally, meaning their test results will be accepted by importers and consumers throughout the world. For exporters of local food products, this will reduce the cost and time it takes to meet requirements of export markets; thus improving economic and trade prospects.
