It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend The 1st International Congress on Food Supplements Safety and Compliance
) taking place in Vienna, Austria from 25-26 June 2018
In the past few decades a lot of progress has been made in harmonisation of regulatory and safety requirements for food supplements (FS) in EU and a lot of attention has been paid to the interpretation and implementation of various provisions, e.g. maximum permitted levels of vitamins and minerals, nutritional and health claims, food contact materials, maximum residue levels of pesticides and veterinary medicines, etc. However, based on the experience from the industry and in particular SME manufacturers and importers of FS products, there is a clear need for clarification and additional guidance in specific important areas, risk assessment of food ingredients and finished products, borderline cases between food supplements and pharmaceuticals, scientific claim support and substantiation, etc.
