Chemical information sheets

You can find the following information on a chemical information sheet:

  • a description of the chemical compound and its sources
  • the potential health effects
  • the likelihood of it occurring in the diet and how safe it is
  • whether safety and/or regulatory limits need to be set.

Pathogen data sheets

Pathogen data sheets give information about the microbial hazards in food and how they are contolled.

Pathogen data sheets give scientific information about the growth, survival and inactivation of pathogens in foods. They also document their reservoirs and sources of contamination, diseases they cause, and how they can be controlled.
