- The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) held an international symposium on 28–29 November 2016 in Berlin/Germany entitled “Standardisation of Non-targeted Methods for Food Authentication”. The main issues addressed at the conference covered (1) general aspects of standardisation of non-targeted approaches in food authentication, (2) the most current status quo on validation and standardisation of analytical methods and statistical models, and (3) the exchangeability of data between laboratories, system challenges, and quality assurance measures. The symposium was a forum for experts and interested stakeholders to exchange scientific knowledge and expertise and to extensively discuss open questions in the research field of food and feed authentication using non-targeted methods.
