Background and Objective
The scientific activities of the Risk Analysis in Food Microbiology Task Force help ensure the safety and high quality of foods. Its objectives are to contribute to the harmonisation of microbiological risk assessment by developing a conceptual framework and working on an agreed terminology. The task force is also developing tools to manage safety hazards and risks in food production systems.
The task force is especially well-known for its reference documents and training tools; like the Concise Monograph on the Hazard Critical Analysis Control Point (HACCP) which has been translated into seven languages and is widely used by industry and academia today. The task force adds to the body of scientific literature on an on-going basis.
