New rules of the game for applications to EFSA - changes due to the Transparency Regulation

An article by Anna Neusch, Dr Anne-Marie Orth and Prof. Andreas Meisterernst in the current German Food Law Review (ZLR, 3/2021). 


The publication takes a critical look at the Transparency Regulation (EU) 2019/1381, which has been in force since 27 March 2021. In addition to legal issues, a look was taken at the practical problems, e.g. with regard to the (now) mandatory pre-notification of studies in applications where a scientific evaluation by EFSA is required (novel foods, additives, enzymes, flavourings, genetically modified foods, health claims).


An English version of the article will be published soon.
