Chemical Risk Assessment

The process of chemical risk assessment: Hazard identification, dose-response assessment, exposure assessment and hazard characterization

Food Packaging & Health


The application of engineered nanomaterials in food contact materials is considered promising tool to improve functionality, but knowledge about exposure and toxicity remains limited. The Food Packaging Forum reviews applications, exposure, toxicity and regulation of nanomaterials.

Endocrine disruptors

Hormones are special. They cause certain effects only at low doses, while at higher doses different or even opposite outcomes are observed. Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can also behave like hormones by activating typical hormone pathways. They, too, can do this differentially, depending on their dose. The science around EDCs is becoming clearer.
