Welcome Speech


Dr. Helmut TschierskyDr. Helmut Tschiersky

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

For the first time, the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) is offering an advanced training on the subject of “Food safety and risk management”, which is immediately following the BfR-Summer Academy.

Based on the wide range of measures, which will contribute towards food/feed safety, the BVL is especially suited for the implementation of such a training.

In this course, we will provide you with the basic knowledge of food/feed safety and risk management in Germany and the European Union. The impact of networks in the field of monitoring, control programs, information systems and during crisis management will be demonstrated by practice-based examples. Authorization procedures will be presented as well as the work of the National and European reference laboratories. In addition to the theoretical transfer of knowledge, a practical reference will be established by the visit of a food business operator.

We intend to address all aspects, which may help to build up a comprehensive risk management for safe food, feed and consumer products.

I am looking forward to welcome you to the training on safer food in Berlin!

Dr. Helmut Tschiersky
(President BVL)
