Risk analysis is the scientific approach to producing safe food and is the cornerstone of new EC food safety legislation. Risk analysis may be divided into risk assessment, risk management and risk communication. This project will provide a database and data for microbial risk assessment from farm to fork, with particular emphasis on epidemiological data and catering. It will publish detailed HACCP based risk management guidance documents for farm HACCP, beef, pork and lamb slaughter & processing HACCP, retail and catering HACCP as well as a HACCP based guide for domestic kitchens. EU-RAIN will also provide the scientific basis for effective risk communication between consumers, food industry personnel, scientists and regulators. These will be achieved by the Concerted Action members and invited experts at 6 meetings/conferences where data will be presented and discussed.
