The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) regularly asks for help with the re-evaluation and safety assessment of various food ingredients, food additives, or enzymes.
To engage EFSA’s scientific assessments, the provision of data is essential. In their own interest, the Member States, research institutions, and industry stakeholders should provide available realistic data for such calls. As individual data influences the outcome of the assessment, participation from all sides is important. Ignorance or non-cooperation can be detrimental to the individual company. Therefore, some current calls for data are listed below:
Deadline: 6 December 2022
- Call for technical and toxicological data on carrageenan (E 407) for uses in foods for all population groups including infants below 16 weeks of age
Deadline: 31 December 2022
- Call for technical and toxicological data on citric acid esters of mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids (E 472c) for uses as a food additive in foods for all population groups including infants below 16 weeks of age
Deadline: 30 June 2023
