Control Document Training of Trainers

Control Document Training of Trainers

by November 28, 2015 0 comments

The Indonesian government has introduced new regulations governing the minimum landing size of blue swimming crab, banning landing berried females, and banning mini-trawl gear. If these regulations are complied with, then the best available modeling indicates typical BSC stocks will rebuild, and trap and gillnet fishers will benefit very quickly. An effort from APRI and NFI Crab Council, with technical support from Sustainable Fisheries Partnership, The Control Document has been develop since the beginning 2015.

In order to continue the Control Document implementation, The Control Document Training of Trainers was conducted in Surabaya on 23-26 November 2015. There were about 45 people representing all APRI members (mostly from Quality Control Department). Government Representatives from Fish Quarantine and Investigation Agency Office (BKIPM, from 6 provinces) also participated in the meeting. These agencies (BKIPM) are the ones responsible in releasing the Health Certificate for export and making sure all the exported products meet the standards and comply with regulations).

“The BSC fisheries extend over much of Indonesia’s coastline and government capacity to enforce the new regulations is limited. The supply chain has the power – through control documents – to significantly assist Indonesia, by excluding illegal actors from the legal supply chain” said Dr Hawis Madduppa, the Executive Director of APRI.

The responses from all the participants in regard to the Control Document are very positive (including from the government).   There all also a lot of constructive inputs and suggestions during the training to improve the implementation of the Control Document. It is believed that Control Document will help the industries to comply with the regulations and at the same time ensure the quality of the crabmeat they produce and sell.

Following this, APRI is planning to discuss with all APRI members during next APRI quarterly meeting in December 2015 on the need to identify and register all the collector (cooking station) supplying to the miniplant.  To ensure that all the collector will have ID number to be put in the Landing Report form, where the documentation on traceability and checking point for Control Document is start. In the first quarter of next year, APRI will start the trial for Control Document in the integrated supply chain, like the one owned by KML (Kelola Mina Laut) in Madura.
