   Food is traded over international borders more than ever before. Foodborne hazards are thus also moving at    
   the global level. Food safety is an important part of food security and is therefore increasingly realized over the 
   world, and notably also in Singapore as a major food importing nation. At the international level novel systems 
   to control and reduce foodborne risks are increasingly based on Risk Analysis.
  NTU Food Technology Centre (NAFTEC) together with The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore 
  (AVA) will be hosting a public seminar on food safety risk analysis in the national and international context. The 
  event will include presentations from the Director General of The French Agency for Food, Environmental and 
  Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES), and the Vice President of the German Federal Institute for Risk 
  Assessment (BfR), among others. The meeting will include a discussion about EU's system for food safety risk 
  assessment, as well as the impact of the novel use of advanced revolutionary technologies such as Next 
  Generation DNA Sequencing, to support science-based risk assessment.  
  The event will provide a forum for valuable exchange on food safety regulation between experts from regulatory 
  authorities, academia and the food industry.
