New EFSA regulation for transparency

The new Regulation EU 2019/1381, also known as “Transparency Regulation”, applicable as of 27 March 2021, will introduce important changes in the operational procedures of the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA).

The scope of the new Regulation is to increase the transparency of risk assessment in the food chain, strengthening the reliability and objectivity of the studies submitted to EFSA, and reinforcing the governance of this Authority.

The Agency has already published practical provisions regarding the processing of the requests to access documentation, as well as the calendar of all activities scheduled for training and support of stakeholders.

The topics of videos and webinars include the update of guidance documents, notification of studies and pre-submission advice, submission of IUCLID (pesticides) and FSCAP (all other sectors) authorisation applications. Stakeholders are invited to inform about their interest in taking part to the training program modules, as entries are limited.
