The positive list, which only includes additives that have been specifically approved on the basis that the available data is sufficient to ensure safety in use. The availability of such a list should not be taken to mean that substances not on the list represent any danger to health. They may not be on the list because they have not been submitted for approval or because there is insufficient data to make a judgment on their safety. 2. The negative list. This identifies specific substances that may not be used as food additives because of specific adverse properties that have been identified or are suspected.

In case of noncompliance of companies, both agencies and companies can appeal to court for settling disputes. A number of federal organizations are involved in food safety [14]: The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) ensures that meat, products of poultry and eggs are safe, wholesome and correctly labelled. For other types of food and food additives, drugs used in and feed used for animals for food production, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible. Pesticides (residues, tolerance levels, safe use) are dealt with by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

If the MOE is substantially smaller than 10,000 exposure reduction measures should be considered. It could be, however, that risk managers will still look for exposure reduction even if the MOE is above 10,000. It can be concluded for the above that the procedure for the determination of the risk from exposure to food additives and contaminants is well established issue which is not well addressed. However risk assessors continue to face a major challenge of how to assess the total impact of food contaminants/food additives on consumer health.
