Das tracking ist ein gemeinsam von Bund und Ländern durchgeführtes Untersuchungsprogramm, das die amtliche Überwachung der Bundesländer ergänzt. Während die Überwachung über hauptsächlich verdachts- und risikoorientierte Untersuchungen die Einhaltung rechtlicher Vorschriften kontrolliert, ist das tracking ein method wiederholter repräsentativer Messungen und Bewertungen von Gehalten an bestimmten unerwünschten Stoffen in den auf dem deutschen Markt befindlichen Erzeugnissen. Dadurch können mögliche gesundheitliche Risiken für die Verbraucher frühzeitig erkannt und durch gezielte Maßnahmen abgestellt werden. Neben Lebensmitteln sind auch kosmetische Mittel und Bedarfsgegenstände Gegenstand des Monitorings. Das tracking von Lebensmitteln wird dabei zweigeteilt durchgeführt: Zum einen werden jährlich zahlreiche Lebensmittel eines definierten Warenkorbes untersucht, zum anderen werden dazu ergänzend aktuelle stoff- bzw. lebensmittelbezogene Fragestellungen in shape von Projekten bearbeitet.
