Harmonized terms, concepts and metadata for microbiological risk assessment models: the basis for knowledge integration and exchange

The management of microbiological safety of food products is a significant challenge on a global scale. Therefore, this article describes the aim to harmonize terms and concepts used in QMRA and PM modelling spanning from high level concepts as defined by Codex Alimentarius, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO), up to terms generally used in statistics or data and software science. As a result, a harmonized schema for metadata that allows consistent annotation of data and models from these two domains is proposed.
