Food Standards Agency to host first International Food Regulatory Analysis Virtual Conference

We are pleased to announce our first major conference on regulatory analysis will be held on 9 and 10 March 2021.

Last updated: 9 May 2022

Registrations are open to attend this virtual conference which will showcase the cutting-edge analysis and research tackling the biggest challenges facing the food landscape.

Since the FSA was established, we have played a key role in protecting consumers and ensuring the food industry is as successful internationally as it is domestically. However, we live in a rapidly changing world. To be ready for the future, regulators need excellence in analysis, research and evidence.
Vanna Aldin, Head of Analytics and Chief Economist at the FSA, said:

‘In the FSA’s 20-year history, we have prided ourselves on our commitment to science and evidence to guide our policy making. As we look towards the next 20 years, global markets, economic and societal change, emerging technologies, climate change, unsustainable consumption models will all have a profound impact on food safety regulation.

‘We are hosting this conference to bring together leading practitioners, public health professionals, researchers and academics from across the world to showcase innovative research on regulatory analysis and demonstrate how science can help regulators tackle the challenges ahead.’

From new trends and technologies to behavioural insights, we'll look at how international analytical research today is helping regulators understand the global food system and the drivers of change.
This event will include talks and panel sessions led by experts in food safety, economics and other social sciences from the FSA and food safety regulators from around the world. There will also be an opportunity to network online with peers and share insights with industry.

The conference was originally planned for March 2020 but was unfortunately cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
