Abstract

This volume is a compilation of invited papers presented during the international workshop on Mycotoxins and toxic plant components which was held in Lisbon, Portugal, on October 13-15, 1994. This workshop was held under the auspices of several services of the European Commission (EC), the World Health Organisation's International Programme on Chemical Safety (WHO/IPCS), the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), and the European Branch of the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), with the additional support of the Portuguese Value Relay Centre. The main objectives of the workshop were: (i) dissemination of the results obtained from several projects of the EC's Measurements and Testing programme; (ii) exchange of information on the toxicity and occurrence of mycotoxins and plant toxins in foodstuffs and feedingstuffs; (iii) identification of future research areas in the field of mycotoxins and plant toxins; (iv) exploitation of the results to industry, mainly small and medium enterprises, also through the Value Relay Centre; (v) gathering important information for future legislation and standardisation of methods within the European Union.
