WP1: HAZARD IDENTIFICATION AND RISK RANKING
WP1 will develop DSS prototypes to carry out hazard identification (HI DSS) and risk ranking (RR DSS) within the infant food chain. In order to identify the top priority hazards to be managed (either chemical or microbiological hazards), also including unsuspected ones discovered in WP3 and WP4 (Step I), first a hazard identification with a very broad scope is needed. This requires the creation of underlying databases by collecting, aggregating, validating and analyzing a wide range of available. data. In a second step, the evaluation and ranking of the risks of the hazards as identified in Step I will enable to filter the main ones according to their public health impact but also to their perception by society. For both steps, integrative procedures and databases will be translated into a prototype DSS that will be tested on the four case studies (CS i-CS iv) and upgraded by refining databases and procedures based on a systematic benchmarking with the related outcomes of the SAFFI Chinese mirror project.
The aim of WP1 is to develop a decision support system prototype to carry out hazard identification and a decision support system prototype for risk ranking. Specific objectives include i) the creation of databases for potential microbiological and chemical hazards and risk estimates; ii) the development of selection procedures for hazard identification and risk ranking; iii) the integration of these databases and procedures in decision support system (DSS) prototypes that are developed for both hazard identification and risk ranking.
