When Lab Results are not Sufficient (2009:5epa)

Författare: Zurek Karolina

This article argues that the current EU regulatory system in the field of food safety fails to live up to the objectives it has set for itself. The existing decision-making scheme is based on a classic risk analysis model that relies heavily on scientific risk assessment.

It is suggested that, in view of the changing conditions of food production, consumption and trade, a more inclusive regulatory approach should be considered.

The analysis is part of the research project The EU food policy.
