Registration opendeadline: 5 September 2018

Data on actual use levels of food additives in food are needed by EFSA for its scientific assessments; in particular for those food additive authorised for use before 2009 that are being re-evaluated by EFSA. To support data usability, a specific additive usage template was designed for data providers to input their data in the required format. Also in the field of food additives, and for those interested in estimating exposure to additives in food, the FAIM interface developed by EFSA allows users to make their own estimates of exposure.

In this webinar we will guide you through the completion of the additive usage template and also give a practical demonstration of how to use FAIM.

This webinar will be of interest to stakeholders and organisations intending to send additive usage data to EFSA and/or those who would like to understand how to use the FAIM.

During the webinar, participants may submit questions which EFSA will answer orally and in writing after the presentation. EFSA will publish a recording of the webinar after the event.
