Determination of the Sphere of Committee's Activities



The Committee should focus its activities in the two basic spheres of influence on food safety. These spheres could be called The Agricultural Production and The Pollution of Agro-ecosystems (water, soil and air).

These spheres are shown on the picture "Risks and Hazards Assessment in Agriculture and Food Industry" (in the circle).
