The participants were from universities, the private sector, and the National and the State Food Safety and Quality Division of the Ministry of Health in Malaysia.
The Food and Drug Administration’s CFSAN and JIFSAN are jointly sponsoring a Food and Nutrition Webinar Series for 2015. The Webinar Series consists of four presentations, two each in Spring and Fall.  The Spring webinars are scheduled for 1:00 PM EDT, March 24, 2015, and April 20, 2015.
Registration for webinar now open - a webinar, to be held in March, will highlight key features of FDA-iRISK® 2.0, an enhanced version of the free, Web-based system made available by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has issued a scientific opinion identifying FDA-iRISK®, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s innovative risk-assessment tool, as “the most appropriate tool for risk ranking of microbiological hazards.”
