Memorandum on the implementation of the EFSA Europese Voedselveiligheidsautoriteit (Europese Voedselveiligheidsautoriteit) sum TWI of PFASs
RIVM – Final 7 April 2021

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has established a new health-based limit value for perfluoralkyl substances (PFASs) in food. This value is lower than previously used values. The limit value is expressed as a Tolerable Weekly Intake (TWI). EFSA used the latest scientific insights considering the possible health-related effects of exposure to PFASs. RIVM will use the new EFSA health-based limit value when performing risk assessments and to establish risk limits for this group of substances.
