Representatives from the regulatory authorities, the industry as well as the scientific fields are presenting the most pressing questions on how to deal with mineral oil hydrocarbons in food including food contact materials during this online conference.
Residues like mineral oil hydrocarbons are strictly regulated within the European Union. The risk management and toxicological assessment of residues, essential to produce compliant products, poses challenges across the entire food industry.
The conference brings together representatives from regulatory and industry backgrounds, as well as political decision-makers to discuss the latest regulatory developments. It keeps track of scientific progress, advances in food analysis and recent developments in risk assessment.
