Chemical Overview Dashboard

The Chemical Overview Dashboard integrates summary elements from three separate sources: JECFA Evaluations Database, GEMS/Food Contaminants database and the WHO Collaborating Centres Database. Note: 1. Hazards evaluated by the JECFA from 1995 onwards are selectable. 2. A blank chart indicates no data available in the GEMS/Food contaminants database. For more details, please visit the source databases themselves by following the links at the bottom of the dashboard.

GEMS/Food Contaminants Database Dashboard

The GEMS/Food Contaminants Database Dashboard enables users select a particular contaminant and view the average levels of detection by commodity, the total number of samples and the percentage of commodities that make up the total. User may also filter the results by food name, food origin and WHO Region. Note: Data displayed on this dashboard are mean-lower bound for individual results.
