Transparency and sustainability of the EU risk assessment in the food chain
On 30 August 2018, the ENVI Committee will consider the above draft report following the European Commission proposal for a regulation on the transparency and sustainability of the EU risk assessment in the food chain. This proposal follows the European Citizens Initiative on glyphosate, and specifically the concerns voiced regarding the studies to be used in the evaluation of pesticides.
In order to address these concerns, the proposal aims at strengthening transparency in the risk assessment process and providing additional guarantees in terms of reliability, objectivity and independence of the studies used by EFSA in risk assessments. It also follows the fitness check of the General Food Law Regulation, which identified the need to improve the transparency in the EU decision-making cycle, as well as the need to safeguard EFSA's ability to get access to a sufficiently high number of qualified and multidisciplinary scientific experts.
