A systematic approach to examine and assess public health and safety risks associated with food. Risk analysis addresses two questions:

1. What is the nature and magnitude of the health risk?

2. How should the risk be managed and communicated to those affected?

 Food risk analysis encompasses the disciplines of risk assessment, risk management and risk communication.

المرحلة 1: تحليل مخاطر الغذاء وأسس تقييم المخاطر | Course 1: Food Risk Analysis and Foundations of Risk Assessment

The objective of this course is to offer a review of the requirements of food risk analysis as a foundation to food regulatory decision-making and to help position risk assessment as the scientific foundation of such decision-making.

The course defines and introduces the requirements of each pillar of risk analysis and their interconnectivity, focusing on roles and responsibilities of competent authorities operating in each of these areas. Case studies where a risk-analysis approach supported reaching major food regulatory decisions internationally will be used to illustrate this course. Emphasis will be on developing critical thinking to enable integration of science and policy considerations that guide food regulatory decisions made by food regulators.
