TC23 - Metrology in Food and Nutrition - About
Food safety concerns and measurement issues: In the world of food as a trading commodity, we are moving towards a global but borderless-trade situation. Food safety being a prime concern under this scenario, reliable F&N measurements take the centre stage in decision-making. A measurement process characterized by metrological concepts enhances the reliability of analytical results and ensures sustainability to the quality assurance (QA) needs. These steps infuse authority to the F&N analytical results and enhance the user confidence in the ensuing public health decisions. Importantly, QA is also firmly linked to economic benefits at the national levels, and TC-23 will strive to demonstrate these features.
