Food Chemical Risk Analysis is the scientific consulting practice of Dr David Tennant. FCRA was established in 1998 and is built on his background as a senior scientist in UK government departments and experience with an international scientific consulting company. A key activity is the provision of consumer exposure analyses and risk assessments for food additives, nutrients, novel ingredients and other food and feed components using deterministic, distributional and probabilistic models. Other important activities include the European registration of animal feed additives, supervision of efficacy and safety studies, regulatory support on novel foods and novel food ingredients and surveys of food additive usage. David Tennant co-authored and edited the book ‘Food Chemical Risk Analysis’.

His experience includes new substances with no precedence for human exposure, existing additives intended for use in foods and adventitious contaminants not intended to be present. Numerous intake models for food additives, novel food ingredients, food contact migrants and other food constituents have been reviewed and accepted by national, European (SCF , EFSA and DG SANCO ) and international (JECFA ) food safety regulatory authorities.
