Food Safety: International Fresenius Conference in Dusseldorf to Discuss the Latest News on Pesticide Residues in Food

Akademie Fresenius is currently sending out invites to their 17th international conference “Food Safety and Dietary Risk Assessment” on 28 and 29 March. At this event, top-ranking international experts will be discussing regulatory developments and risk assessment methods.

The agenda includes reports on residues in fish and honey, metabolite assessment as well as setting maximum residue levels for pesticides and biocides.

In addition, the participants will also be provided with a status report on the guidance document on chemical mixtures drafted by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). There will also be an update on the work being carried out in the EuroMix project. This project (European Test and Risk Assessment Strategies for Mixtures) involves scientists from 15 countries who are currently developing a strategy for examining and assessing the toxicity of chemical mixtures.
