 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Food Safety Objectives (FSO) and Performance Objectives (PO) are new criteria complementing the existing concepts of microbiological criteria and MRL for many chemical contaminants. However, to achieve these objectives it is critically important a harmonisation of food safety control procedures. BASELINE project intends to obtain the following objectives: 1) To review the sampling schemes currently available for food authorities and food producers to perform food safety quantitative risk assessment in a European level; 2) To assess the relevance and suitable limit values of POs and FSOs for biological and chemical risks; 3) To evaluate the need for new or adapted methods for sampling and testing of the risk factors identified. The selected protocols and methods should be able to produce suitable data for risk analysis; 4) To develop predictive mathematical models for biological risks and investigate and model sources and pathways of chemical contaminants to improve sampling schemes; 5) To validate and harmonise the sampling schemes developed in the project and alternative detection methods; 6) To share and disseminate the scientific knowledge deriving from the project to stakeholders. The BASELINE work plan has been divided in 9 work packages: WP1- management, WP2-WP6 sampling protocols for specific food matrixes, WP7-risk modelling, WP8-validation and harmonisation of sampling protocols, WP9-dissemination and training. The major output of the project is to generate new knowledge on sampling schemes for risk assessment by using a mathematical approach for different groups of food products as seafood, eggs and egg products, fresh meats, milk and dairy products and plant products. The project results will be translated in clear recommendations to the EC and end users and they will have a significant impact on protecting human and veterinary health.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Researchers working on food safety have developed sampling methods that can enhance the detection of chemical and biological risks. This will reduce the negative health and economic impacts on both food producers and consumers.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

To secure a high level of health protection for Europeans, the criteria for food safety must be based on analysing the risks involved. Therefore, the data collection for risk assessment should be done using common methodology and criteria across Europe to enable comparisons to be made.

With this requirement in mind, the 'Selection and improving of fit-for-purpose sampling procedures for specific foods and risk' (BASELINE) project, funded by the EU, was established. Its aim was to ensure that comparable data could be collected to improve the quantitative risk analysis of selected biological and chemical agents.

Different analytical methods have been developed to be applied as an alternative to current standard methods. These new methods are generally faster and their implementation should represent a huge advantage in terms of the time needed to detect a food risk.

Widespread application of the sampling schemes developed will increase the likelihood that any microbiological and toxic hazard in food products will be detected before their distribution to (and consumption by) consumers. This operation should substantially reduce the risk of food-borne diseases for European consumers.

The last BASELINE project period will focus on editing the sampling schemes for the chosen food-risk combinations, which will then be used as the basis for training manuals. These documents will play an important role in the sharing and dissemination of scientific knowledge produced by the project to all relevant stakeholders.
