The research on food safety constantly produces new findings and improved procedures, but regulation and associated requirements with regard to the topic also develop steadily. The Akademie Fresenius presents everything worth knowing  in the area of pesticide residues in food within the scope of the annual international conference „Food Safety and Dietary Risk Assessment“. The next event will take place from 29 February to 1 March 2016 in Cologne/Germany.

The conference is divided into four topic areas. It begins on with the area Short-Term-Intake (IESTI) which will among other things discuss the results from the EFSA/FAO/WHO workshop. The event will continue with presentations regarding the topic of residue data requirements featuring news about residues in honey, about possible future developments on OECD level and the new BfR database of quality controlled processing factors. The first conference day will end with the area of MRL setting which will deal with country reports from Austria and Thailand as well as with improvements on the review of existing EU-MRLs. The second conference day focuses on (cumulative) risk assessment and toxicological aspects. The programme for the day includes presentations with regard to the assessment of pesticide metabolites, to chronic cumulative risk assessment, to cumulative assessment groups (CAGs) in the context of neurotoxicity assessment and to the toxic potency of short-term exposures.
