6 Development of guidance documents

This report can be used as reference material when drawing up guidance documents on risk management of food safety in seaweed. Guidance documents will be valuable for both food agencies and business operators in the Nordic countries.
A Nordic guidance document will not be prepared within this project, due to variations between the Nordic countries in terms of types of production, advice to consumers, and management of iodine intake in the population.
In addition, the rapid development of use of seaweed in food production, research on food safety aspects, and ongoing legislative developments in the EU necessitate frequent updates of guidelines, which will be more easily accomplished at national level.
