WP 7: Validation and harmonisation of sampling protocols most suitable for biological and chemical risks in food safety assurance schemes

wp7

WP Leader: Dario De Medici (ISS)

WP objectives:

Partners involved: UNIBO, NVI, CNTA, DKFZ, HFSO, ISS, UCPH, UCO, UN, AFSSA, TEAGASC, ORT

Tasks:
7.1 Practical experiments of current and alternative sampling schemes selected in WP 1, 2, 3, 4
and 5 will be developed, in order to define optimal sample size for microbiological and chemical
survey by using mathematical models (Leader: Madelaine Norström - NVI)
7.2 Estimation of uncertainty of sampling carried out according to the sampling methods
specified in EU protocols (Leader: Arpad Ambrus - HFSO)
7.3 Validation of alternative detection methods (Monica Gianfranceschi - ISS)
7.4 Validation of sampling schemes developed in the project using traditional and alternative
methods (Leader: Zanoni Renato Giulio - UNIBO)
7.5 Harmonisation of sampling schemes based on the use of novel and alternative detection
methods in order to be adopted as international standards (Leader: Monica Gianfranceschi - ISS)
