Parameterisation of scenarios for exposure of soil organisms

European scenarios for exposure of soil organisms to Plant Protection Products are currently not available (EFSA Panel on Plant Protection Products and their Residues (PPR), 2010). In this document, the parameterisation of realistic worst-case scenarios f ...

2009 EU Report on Pesticide Residues

The report presents the results of the control of pesticide residues in food commodities sampled during the calendar year 2009 in the 27 EU Member States and two EFTA countries (Iceland and Norway). The report also comprises the outcome of the consumer ri ...

Simulation-based assessment on Microbiological Process Hygiene Criteria

A simulation exercise was performed to contribute to the assessment of the impact of Salmonella spp. on public health. The aim of this simulation approach was to investigate the effect of the prevalence of contaminated broiler carcasses at slaughterhouse ...
