Dear Colleague

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend The 2nd International Congress on Food Supplements Safety and Compliance  (FSSC-2019) taking place in Brussels, Belgium from 28-29 October 2019.

Following the great response and success of the Congress in Vienna in 2018, at this second Congress you will have the opportunity to acquire expert knowledge and learn groundbreaking news about the hot topics in the food supplements market, related to safety and compliance.

In the past few decades a lot of progress has been made in the harmonization of regulatory and safety requirements for food supplements (FS) in the EU and a lot of attention has been paid to the interpretation and implementation of various provisions, e.g. maximum permitted levels of vitamins and minerals, nutritional and health claims, food contact materials, maximum residue levels of pesticides and veterinary medicines, etc. 

However, based on the experience from the industry and in particular SME manufacturers and importers of FS products and the input received from participants of the previous congress edition there is a clear need for clarification and additional guidance. In view of the numerous hot topics like the New Mutual Recognition regulation, Novel Foods and Traditional Use products, Management of Safety and Quality of food supplements, Official Controls by authorities and many others, we aim to bring together renowned regulatory experts, representatives from industry and leading authorities to provide a platform for the exchange of essential knowledge and information. 

In the same tradition of the previous edition, for which we received huge support and positive feedback from the participants, we again aim to combine the expertise from the industry associations (e.g. Food Supplements Europe, Council for Responsible Nutrition, etc.), academic scientists, regulatory experts and the authorities. 

Join the Congress and benefit from expanding your network. Meet new friends, greet old colleagues and discuss new insight gained.

We wish you a fruitful and enjoyable congress and look forward to welcoming you to Brussels!
