Microorganisms in Foods 7 - Microbiological Testing in Food Safety Management
Edited by International Commission for the Microbiological Specifications of Foods (ICMSF)
This book describes the role of microbiological testing in modern food safety management systems.
It explores how risk assessment and risk management can be used to establish goals - known as
"tolerable levels of risk" or "food safety objectives" - for use in controlling foodborne illness, and provides
guidelines for establishing effective management systems to control specific hazards in foods. It describes the
respective roles of industry and government, recognizing that it is through their collective actions that effective
food safety systems are developed and verified, and helps countries determine whether imported foods have
been produced with an equivalent level of protection.

This groundbreaking book will be of interest to food microbiologists, researchers, and others in the food industry,
regulatory agencies and academia worldwide.
The information has been prepared by the International Commission on Microbiological Specifications for
Foods (ICMSF). The ICMSF was formed in response to the need for internationally acceptable and
authoritative decisions on microbiological limits for foods moving in international commerce. Currently
the membership consists of eighteen food microbiologists from eleven countries, drawn from governmental
laboratories in public health, agriculture, and food technology, from universities and from the food industry.
