SARAF Webinar, December 20th, 2023

Since 2001, SARAF (LABERCA, Oniris, Nantes, France) aims at training scientists, engineers and technicians to the modern analytical methods dedicated to residues and contaminants in food.

Following our Webinars of 1st March and 8th December 2022 on the newly adopted EU regulation 2021/808, we have decided to organise a Part III Webinar presenting illustrations on how this new regulation is currently being implemented in 3 laboratories (Poland, Belgium and Morocco).

The date has been set to 20th December 2023.

The presentations will be given by key experts in the field, i.e. Mr Frans Verstraete (EU DG SANTE, Bruxelles) and Dr Joachim Polzer (EURL BfR, Berlin). Dr Piotr Jedziniak (National Veterinary Research Institute, Pulawy, Poland), Dr Nathalie Gillard (CER Groupe Marloie, Belgium) and Dr Sami Darkaoui (National Office for Food Product Safety, Rabat, Morocco) will then present an overview of the implementation of CIR (EU) 2021/808 in their laboratory.

Dr Eric Verdon (EURL Vet med, Fougères) and Drs Saskia Sterk (WFSR, Wageningen) will join the speakers for the round table. The webinar will be moderated by Prof. Bruno Le Bizec (LABERCA, Nantes).

The live session will take place from 9:00 to 12:00 Central European Time on 20th December 2023. The event will be recorded and made available for replay on our SARAF website.

The webinar is free of charge. However, registration is mandatory.
