Welcome to the FACET Homepage
The 7th Framework EU funded project Flavourings, Additives and food Contact materials Exposure Task, or in short FACET, will estimate exposure to flavours, additives and food contact materials across Europe.
The concept behind this project is the creation of a food chemical exposure surveillance system, sustainable beyond the life of the project, which covers representative regions of the EU and which will meet, to the highest possible standard, the needs of the EU regulatory authorities in the protection of consumer health.
This project started on the 1st September 2008 and will last for 4 years.
The Lead Coordinator of the project is Prof. Mike Gibney, University College Dublin, and the FACET consortium consists of 20 collaborative partners across the EU. The partners are formed from industrial, academic and public body research centres.
