3–4 March 2005, Brussels, Belgium
The 3rd AOAC Europe /Eurachem Symposium: Legal Limits on the Road to Food Safety—Establishing Sound Criteria for Compliance Decisions will be held 3–4 March 2005 in Brussels, Belgium. The symposium is intended for an audience of food and feed analysts, quality-assurance managers, administrators, and academics.
Quality-assurance managers as well as competent authorities have to consider a number of factors when deciding how to comply with European Union or national legislation. They require more information than just analytical results because there are so many different standards for food safety. Critical issues to be addressed by this symposium are as follows:
• regulatory issues and requirements
• assessment of compliance
• sampling and its uncertainty
• use of different methods of analysis
• quality issues in analysis and measurement uncertainty
• data tracking and tracing as part of quality control
The symposium will include lectures by invited speakers, a poster session, and five-minute poster presentations. The symposium will be held at the Hotel Bedford in the center of Brussels.
