CAST would like online access to a health and safety and environmental information service that will give access and provide up-to-date information, advice and guidance to improve decision making, understand complex information areas, reduce risk and manage projects. The information service should provide access to information (5 individual logins) regarding health and safety and environmental guidelines. The service will give provide up-to-date information, advice and guidance on the full extent of topics to improve decision making, understand complex information areas, reduce risk and manage projects. It should also include a chemical safety service that delivers the latest information and guidance to those requiring health and safety related data on individual compounds that are intrinsically hazardous, or become hazardous during storage, processing, manufacture or disposal Further details can be found within the full documentation attached to this notice.

FS102079 - Desk-based study on bacteriophages in foods

Bacteriophages are viruses that can kill specific bacteria and therefore they can be used to reduce microbiological contamination of foods e.g. to reduce Listeria on fish, cooked meat products or vegetables. The aim of the project is to produce a comprehensive report on the potential use of bacteriophages on a range of foods. The aim of this desk-based study is to gather and assess information on the potential use of bacteriophages, which is a new emerging area of work. Overall the project links to the FSA Strategy outcome “Food produced or sold in the UK is safe to eat”, more specifically the priority on horizon scanning. The project also links into the FSA’s Science and Evidence Strategy priority activity theme “Identifying and obtaining the information we need” since the outcomes of the project may be taken into account when developing UK policy on bacteriophages. This project falls under the additives sub-programme as the use of bacteriophages may fall within the scope of the definition of a food additive or a processing aid. The aim of the additives sub-programme (which is part of the chemical safety programme) is to provide information to ensure the use of food additives, processing aids, flavourings and food enzymes does not prejudice food safety. Information and evidence is also required to underpin policy work in these areas.

The aim of this desk-based study is to gather and assess information on potential alternatives to currently permitted preservatives. Overall the project links to the FSA Strategy outcome “Food produced or sold in the UK is safe to eat”, more specifically the priority on horizon scanning. The project also links into the FSA’s Science and Evidence Strategy priority activity theme “Identifying and obtaining the information we need” since the outcomes of the project may be taken into account when developing UK policy on food additives. This project comes under the Additives sub-programme, which is part of the Chemical Safety Programme. The aim of the additives sub-programme is to provide information to ensure the use of food additives, processing aids, flavourings and food enzymes does not prejudice food safety. Information and evidence is also required to underpin policy work in these areas. The aim of the project is to examine the availability and feasibility of alternative approaches to the currently permitted preservatives. Currently the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is re-evaluating all food additives which may result in some changes to currently permitted authorisations. Therefore this project should examine alternative processing techniques, new food additives under development and also food additives which may be permitted outside the European Union . In addition, any limitations with current preservative techniques (food additives or processing methods) should be assessed.
