The FACET Project
The FACET project developed the FACET (Flavourings, Additives, and food Contact materials Exposure Tool) exposure tool in response to a call by the European Commission to produce a risk management tool consisting of a database containing information on concentrations of food additives and food flavourings, potential migrants in food contact materials and food consumption data.

The importance of such tool is that no concerted effort has been made in the EU to combine exposure estimates for several chemicals. The project ensured that the developed exposure tool will be sustainable and further developed for use by EU regulatory authorities.
