  1. Risk assessment of intentionally and non-intentionally added substances (IAS and Nias) migrating from FCMs

    This session will look at the steps that should be taken to assess the risk of FCM-substances that migrate into food, under foreseeable conditions of use. 

    We will look at the differences between the intentionally and non intentionally added substances (IAS and Nias). Then examine when a given IAS or Nias can be self-risk assessed, and when industry should consider, for an IAS, an application to a competent authority.

    During this module, you will learn about:

    • which countries/regions, in the above mentioned markets allow self-risk assessments for an IAS and/or Nias migrating into food from a FCM; 
    • when there is no need for a (self) risk assessment of migrating substances into food from FCM;
    • what to do when it is not possible to carry out a self-risk assessment, and when a risk assessment must be provided as part of a petitioning process for including a new FCM-substance on a given positive list in a given key market; 
    • what type of information (for example physico-chemical, (eco) toxicological) is needed to carry out the (self) risk assessment of an IAS or Nias migrating into food; 
    • when read-across can be used in the (self) risk assessment of an IAS and Nias migrating into food from an FCM; 
    • when a threshold of toxicological concern (TTC) approach can be used in the (self) risk assessment of an IAS or Nias migrating into food; and 
    • when and which specific (quantitative) structure-activity relationship (Qsar) tools can be used in the (self) risk assessment of an IAS or Nias migrating into food from a FCM.
