Globally there is an increased interest amongst government agencies, industry and academic experts in the integration of risk assessment as a part of allergen management, including as input into decisions on precautionary allergen labelling (PAL). Despite the increased maturity of allergen risk assessment approaches, which includes basic criteria on how calculations can be performed, there is a lack of consensus on practical deployment. This is a significant gap, as only with such consensus across all stakeholders and especially food operators can there be more accurate and meaningful PAL.

Through a series of stakeholder workshops, this project defined consensus on the methodologies needed for quantitative risk assessment by food business operators, and their implementation:

Mini-events to discuss specific sections of the guidance document:
- Core Concepts: Food intake, data conversion, carry-over calculation, and prevalence of food allergy, 29 April 2021
- Incidents - characteristics of contamination, 7 May 2021
- Core Concepts: Sampling and analysis, 18 May 2021
- Incidents - communication, 1st June 2021
- Communication across the supply chain, 29 July 2021

The EG published a peer-reviewed publication (here) and released a practical guidance (Black and White Report) (available soon).

During the final webinar, we will present the chapters summaries of the Practical Guidance (Black & White Report) including Communication Across Supply Chains, Management of Operations, Management of Incidents and Overarching Core Concepts.

About the ESTIV Congresses
The European Society of Toxicology In Vitro (ESTIV) is organized every two years. The ESTIV2022 congress aims to create a forum of scientists in a unique atmosphere for discussions and the exchange of knowledge. Its objective is also to promote contact between junior and senior researchers, students and toxicologists from European companies, governments and universities involved in the development and use of in vitro and in silico approaches. The congress is expected to include 500+ attendees and 30+ exhibitors.

For more details and registration, please visit the event's website.
