Description

The purpose of this monograph is 2-fold: 1) to provide descriptive guidance for JECFA and JMPR to ensure the continuation of transparent and sound expert evaluations of scientific data for risk assessments of chemicals in food; and 2) to be informative for users of the outputs from JECFA and JMPR, such as risk managers and other risk assessment bodies in Member countries and authorities.

In this chapter, the risk assessment of chemicals in food as a part of risk analysis process have been addressed. We would like to point out the importance of this process in the area of public health and consumer protection. Through food and nutrition products and most often misleading advertisements, people are exposed to different hazards that could have severe harmful consequences. Among the consumer groups, children are mostly vulnerable because of their adult dependencies, age and body weight

Methods for assessment of risk may differ between industries and whether it pertains to general financial decisions or environmental, ecological, or public health risk assessment. 2 Risk assessment in public health. How the risk is determined. In the context of public health, risk assessment is the process of quantifying the probability of a harmful effect to individuals or populations from certain human activities.

Updating the Principles and Methods of Risk Assessment .

Updating the Principles and Methods of Risk Assessment: MRLs for Pesticides and Veterinary Drugs. The Joint Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations/The Netherlands National Institute for Public Health and the Environment/World Health Organization (FAO/RIVM/WHO) Workshop: "Updating the Principles and Methods of Risk Assessment: Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) for Pesticides and Veterinary Drugs" was organized within the framework of the Project to Update the Principles and Methods for the Risk Assessment of. Chemicals in Food which was launched by FAO and WHO in 2002 with the following objectives

Its predecessor, the Health Organization, was an agency of the League of Nations.

The Joint Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)/World Health Organization (WHO) Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) and the Joint FAO/WHO Meeting on Pesticide Residues (JMPR) follow the same general principles and methods for chemical risk assessments, which are published in the reports of both committees. In response to recommendations made by JECFA and JMPR in the 1980s to review the validity of the evaluation procedures then in place, the International Program on Chemical Safety (IPCS) sponsored the preparation of Environmental Health Criteria monographs (EHCs) on Principles for the Safety Assessment of Food Additives and Contaminants in Food (EHC 70) and Principles for the Toxicological Assessment of Pesticide Residues in Food (EHC 104). These monographs and the principles laid out in subsequent reports have served as the basis for the assessments that have been performed by JECFA and JMPR. Although much of the guidance set out in EHC 70 and EHC 104 remains valid, there have been significant advances in chemical analysis, toxicology, dietary exposure assessment and risk assessment approaches for chemicals in food since these monographs were prepared. Accordingly, FAO and WHO initiated a project to update, harmonize and consolidate principles and methods used by JECFA and JMPR for the risk assessment of food additives, food contaminants, natural toxicants and residues of pesticides and veterinary drugs. This monograph is the outcome of that project. The purpose of this monograph is 2-fold: 1) to provide descriptive guidance for JECFA and JMPR to ensure the continuation of transparent and sound expert evaluations of scientific data for risk assessments of chemicals in food; and 2) to inform users of the outputs from JECFA and JMPR such as risk managers and other risk assessment bodies in Member countries and authorities.The monograph addresses the key issues considered by JECFA and JMPR in their food chemical risk assessments.
