Abstract

Evaluation of the safety of chemicals in food have created considerable interest within the public, political, administrative, and scientific sectors in many parts of the world.

Political and administrative approaches may vary from country to country depending on traditions and cultural pattern. The political aims and goals of our times may be clearly defined, but they are often rather obscure seen from a scientific point of view. Health authorities are supposed to interpret the political intentions and transcribe them into practical administration.

The use, by national and international health authorities, of the available scientific and technological knowledge to evaluate the safety of the food in question is discussed.
