Feedback on Draft Regulation on the Application of Control & Mitigation Measures to Reduce the Presence of Acrylamide in Food

Acrylamide is a contaminant as defined in EU legislation and as such, it is a chemical hazard in the food chain. The mitigation measures set out in this draft Regulation are based on current scientific and technical knowledge and they have proven to result in lower levels of acrylamide without adversely affecting the quality and microbial safety of the product. Those mitigation measures have been established following extensive consultation of organisations representing affected food business operators, consumers and experts from competent authorities of Member States.
