Allergenen Consultancy is de eerste erkende Europese VITAL trainer

Action limits or thresholds play an important role in managing allergen risks. At what level does cross-contact pose a risk to an allergic consumer? What are the conditions to apply a warning on a label ('may contain' also called precautionary allergen labelling (PAL))?

Based on scientific information, so-called reference doses have been established. These safe limits are used in risk assessment of allergens. Several European governments apply the reference doses in allergen recalls. Retailers also request a quantitative allergen calculation from their private label suppliers before cross-contact with allergens is mentioned on the label.

Course for food industry

This training is designed for quality managers, QA-managers, product specification managers, auditors at certifying bodies, consultants, Regulatory Affairs Managers and R&D. In short, anyone who has to deal with food safety and labelling.

During this training, you will learn how to perform a quantitative allergen risk assessment by means of cases and practical examples.

The Allergen Risk Calculator (ARC) can be used for 6 months after the training, free of charge. After this period it is possible to subscribe for an update service . Against a small fee, annually a new licence will be sent automatically and also new versions of the ARC. The ARC can be used for upload in TraceOne (AH) or SIM (Jumbo, SuperUnie). After the course you will be able to perform a quantitative risk assessment in a tool of choice.

Web-based training

Our web-based training is possible from any computer or laptop. Only a camera, microphone and a quiet environment are required. The training is provided in MS Teams.
The training takes place in small groups and is not pre-recorded (no webinar). In this way we guarantee interactivity, both between the trainer and the student, but also between the participants themselves. 
Within the digital training environment, we can share screens with each other or in subgroups so that we are able to look along with the VITAL calculations performed. This is also possible in a private mode without the entire group listening in or watching.
