Abstract:
Deadline: 25 February 2011

Public consultation on: "Guidance on risk assessment concerning potential risks arising from applications of nanoscience and nanotechnologies to food and feed"

EU | Posted on January 14th, 2011

EFSA's Scientific Committee has launched an public consultation on a draft guidance on risk assessment concerning potential risks arising from applications of nanoscience and nanotechnologies to food and feed. The guidance offers practical guidance for the risk assessment of applications involving the use of nanoscience and nanotechnology in the area of food and feed (including food additives, enzymes, flavourings, food contact materials, novel foods, feed additives and pesticides).

In line with EFSA's policy on openness and transparency and in order for EFSA to receive comments from the scientific community and stakeholders, EFSA has launched a public consultation on the draft guidance developed by the Scientific Committee.

Interested parties are invited to submit written comments by 25 February 2011.

Please use exclusively the electronic template provided with the documents to submit comments and refer to the line and page numbers. Please note that comments submitted by e-mail or by post cannot be taken into account and that a submission will not be considered if it is:

* submitted after the deadline set out in the call
* presented in any form other than what is provided for in the instructions and template
* not related to the contents of the document
* contains complaints against institutions, personal accusations, irrelevant or offensive statements or material
* is related to policy or risk management aspects, which is out of the scope of EFSA's activity.

EFSA will assess all comments from interested parties which are submitted in line with the criteria above. The comments will be further considered by the relevant EFSA Panel and taken into consideration if found to be relevant.
