Demystifying the risks on allergy risk assessment

As a participant in this training, you will also have the unique opportunity to join our Community of Practice. This platform allows you to stay informed on the latest updates on quantitative risk assessment and share your concerns with the experts on the topic. Please note: You can only follow the training if you are a registered conference participant. You can register for the training on the same registration form as for the conference.

During this training, ILSI Europe experts will clarify the methodologies of allergen quantitative risk assessment, ultimately improving decision-making on precautionary labelling. Participants will gain valuable insights into the potential risks posed to allergic consumers by unexpected allergen presence in food products and learn how to effectively mitigate these risks.
