Short description  Guidelines and principles for microbiological risk assessment (MRA) have been elaborated through the role of the Codex Alimentarius Commission as the recognised standard-setting body for safe foods in international trade. The focus of the workshop reported on here was to build up a good understanding (i) of the variety of microbiological risk assessment (MRA) approaches developed by different risk assessors since this methodology began to evolve (mid-1990s) and (ii) of the purpose and context of individual MRAs. Based on that understanding, the workshop intended to discuss two aspects that are important for an MRA to be useful: utility (related
to the usefulness regarding the purpose an MRA has been developed for) and validity (the trueness or correctness of an MRA).
