13th BfR Consumer Protection Forum "Checks in the Food Chain. Verify Better - Evaluate Better"

(14.06.2012 - 15.06.2012)

The aim of the 13th BfR Forums is to show the various possibilities of modern analysis and to examine their significance with regard to checks and the management of crises along the food chain.

In an initial, scientific part, the Forum will first focus on the fields of activity of the National Reference Laboratories (NRL), which were established in 2004, and the contribution they make toward quality-assured monitoring and risk assessment. In a second, scientific part, quality control measures and the acquisition of reference materials will be presented. A third topic block will clarify to what extent quick tests and new analytical techniques can be used in the future. It will be examined whether the road to developing one method of analysis through to international standardisation is moving quickly enough. "After the Crisis is before the Crisis", which measures are necessary and possible in the laboratories? This question is to be discussed with affected parties from member states and the economy prior to all participants being called upon in conclusion to outline their future visions ("Analysis 2022")
