On July 16, 2015 the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Europe published a guidance document on “Best practices on the risk assessment of non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) in food contact materials and articles.” The report describes in a practical manner what NIAS are and how risk assessment principles can be applied. It was reviewed by 50 key stakeholders in a workshop held in Brussels on April 2-4, 2014. The guidance document is mainly intended for scientists involved in the evaluation of NIAS, the supply chain, the food industry and consumer organizations.
