ECsafeSEAFOOD Policy Workshop

Brussels, Belgium
The EU FP7-funded ECsafeSEAFOOD project is holding its policy workshop in Brussels, Belgium on Thursday 21 January 2016. ECsafeSEAFOOD aims to assess safety issues mainly related to non-regulated contaminants present in seafood as a result of environmental contamination and evaluate their impact on public health. Results from the project can inform policy makers about the need for and requirements of seafood regulatory and monitoring programmes for these contaminants of emerging concern. The aim of this workshop is to gain better insights into actions and steps that ECsafeSEAFOOD can take considering the project results on non-regulated contaminants of emerging concern for the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) – Descriptor 9 (Contaminants in fish and seafood for human consumption) and Descriptor 10 (Marine litter). This event is targeted towards EC and other policy and decision makers involved in MSFD.
