EFSA Announces Scientific Meetings that are Open to the Public

March 13, 2013

Underpinning its commitment to openness and transparency, the European Food and Safety Authority (EFSA) will make some of their scientific plenary meetings accessible to the public either in total or in part. However, because of the confidentiality of certain regulated product application dossiers and the need to respect proprietary data, EFSA informs interested Observers from the outset that not all agenda items of all meetings will be discussed in their presence. Nevertheless, the Authority will make efforts to ensure that Observers gain a better understanding of how scientific risk assessment works at EFSA and endeavour to provide new opportunities for interaction with EFSA's scientific experts.
