Abstract:
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has issued a call for expressions of interest for scientific experts to be considered as external experts of the EFSA Scientific Committee.

Call for food safety experts

Europe | Posted on March 17th, 2008

EFSA's Scientific Committee provides scientific opinions and advice and supports the work of EFSA's Scientific Panels on scientific matters of a horizontal nature. It is also responsible for general co-ordination to ensure consistency in the scientific opinions prepared by the Scientific Panels. Another role of the Scientific Committee is in developing harmonised risk assessment methodologies in fields where EU-wide approaches are not already defined.

The required expertise of the external experts is within the field of EFSA's remit, e.g. in: human health risk assessment, food consumption and exposure assessment, environmental risk assessment, animal health risk assessment, toxicology, microbiology, human nutrition, epidemiology, animal health, animal welfare, human medicine, veterinary medicine, food hygiene, food technology, chemistry, biology, biochemistry, life sciences.

To see the full details of the call, please consult the following web address:
eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:C:2008:070:0014:0017:EN:PDF

Remarks: The deadline for submitting expressions of interest is 1 June 2008.

Before contacting the Commission, tenderers are strongly advised to consult the original call text in the Official Journal of the European Union at the reference below.
