Local government has responsible for investigating foodborne outbreak, and when needed, they could coordinate with other CAs (e.g., BPOM, provincial offices). The investigation may include seeking the source of the food and sampling for analysis. The outbreaks shall be reported within 24 hours through an SMS gateway. The Ministry of Health has also stipulated the decrees regarding surveillance systems, namely Regulation No. 2/2013 on foodborne disease outbreaks and Regulation No. 45/2014 on food borne disease surveillance. These regulations are implemented by local government at district level. Health officer conducts monitoring for 23 notifiable diseases (diarrhea, dysentery, etc) and reports it monthly.
National monitoring systems – foodborne hazards in the food chain
Each relevant ministries (MoA, MoH, MoFM, MoT and NADFC) has monitoring system for collecting data on foodborne hazards in food. The kind of food monitored based on its authority, for instance, MoA focus on fresh food, either plant or animal origin.
