Dietary Safety

Dietary safety is a very important consideration during the assessment of agrochemicals. In order to avoid undesirable effects on food quality and problems for consumers, a variety of different studies are performed to investigate the stability of substances and their residues in crops and farm animals.

Analytical methods for detecting residues in different matrices are also developed. These studies are run according to Good Laboratory Practice (GLP).

Dietary Risk Assessment

The data generated in these studies allow representative values for residue levels in food commodities to be determined, and Maximum Residues Levels (MRLs) to be set. These residues data provide the basis for a dietary risk assessment, through which a substance can be characterized with regard to food safety
