ERA – Annual Conference on EU Law in the Food Sector 2016

What are the recent developments in EU food law? Has the EU-TTIP negotiations an impact on food safety? Which regulatory standards apply?

These questions upon others will be subject of the Annual Conference on EU Law in the Food Sector 2016. From 19th until 20th May 2016 experts and practitioners from the food sector will discuss in Parma/Italy. The conference is organised by ERA, the Academy of European Law, and hosted by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

An exchange of views about “food safety and risk assessment” with experts from the EU Commission, Industry, EU member states and consumer representations will give an overview about the recent developments at national and EU level.

Additionally “food and health” are the main topic of the second part of the annual conference with the focus on food innovation and reformulation, health claims, nutrition and allergies and foods for specific groups.
