HSE's Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) is holding a two-day
Consumer Risk Assessment workshop. The aim of the event will be to
raise awareness, provide guidance in the appropriate use of residue
values in risk assessment models, and highlight commonly
encountered problems and topical issues in the field of residues
evaluation and consumer risk assessment. A mixture of presentations
and case studies (workshop style, for example using the PRIMo3 EFSA
model for risk assessment) considered in an informal setting will
be used to relay the information.
The course will cover:
- Underlying principles of chronic and acute risk assessment
- Selection of residue values for risk assessment purposes,
covering human dietary intakes and animal dietary burden
- Topical issues relevant to residues (e.g. residue definitions)
and consumer risk assessment (e.g. variability and cumulative
- Processing factors and refining risk assessments
- Rotational crop scenarios for residues assessments
- Combined risk assessment

assessment; the programme also aims to provide HSE (CRD) views on
