Completion Date: 2000 - project completed
- To provide a scientific forum for the exchange of technical information
and activities related to the identification and determination of mycotoxins
- To create an environment for the sharing of knowledge between developed
and less-developed countries.
- To exchange and discuss recent information, developments and findings
in the field of exposure and risk assessments, and regulatory legislation.
- To improve choices of analytical procedures, greater awareness of
analytical quality assurance, and updating of new developments in mycotoxin
and phycotoxin analysis.
- To improve consumer protection.
The occurrence of these mold toxins in feeds and foods has harmful
health effects on animals and man and causes serious economic losses
both in domestic and international trade. The Symposium is of special
significance as it will be held in Brazil where there is an active group
involved in research on mycotoxin problems in foods and feeds and will
extend the involvement of IUPAC in the South American region.
Considerable progress has already been made in the initial planning
for this Symposium by putting together the Local and International Organizing
Committees and by establishing contacts with potential sponsors as well
as governmental and scientific organizations in the region. Symposium
date: 21-25 May 2000, IUPAC sponsored.
The Proceedings of the Symposium are edited by W.J. de Koe, R.A. Samson,
H.P. van Egmond, J. Gilbert and M. Sabino, and published and distributed
by W.J. de Koe (2001) [ISBN 90-9014801-9].
